Just yesterday we posted about K-1 holding their return show in Spain on May 27, according to Daniel Ghita. Now we have some more news pertaining to Ghita and who he'll be fighting on the card, as well as the new location.
In Madrid, Daniel Ghita will be taking on Paul Slowinski on May 27. Romanian combat sports website lupatorii.ro talked to Ghita's team and confirmed the news with Gabriel Cazan, Ghita's representative in Romania.
This will be Ghita's second fight in May, as he'll first take on Sebastian van Thielen on May 12 in the main event of It's Showtime's event on that date. A month after the fight with Slowinski, Ghita faces Frederic Sinistra at It's Showtime's event in Brussels. He'll be very busy but aside from the Slowinski bout, he most likely won't have much trouble at all with van Thielen and Sinistra.
It's about time Paul Slowinski is back on a big stage. He's been tearing through the Australian scene lately, recording eight wins in a row. All of those wins have impressively come by KO/TKO so he definitely deserves to step up. Slowinski was originally scheduled to face Ghita on May 14 of last year for It's Showtime but pulled out due to injury.
Ghita is headed to Florida next week to train with Alistair Overeem, Tyrone Spong and the Blackzillians team where he'll train for his fight on May 12.
