It's Showtime is back tomorrow with a huge event, featuring Editions 57 and 58. The card is split into two parts, the first part being Edition 57 and the second part being Edition 58. Both parts have some great match-ups, including two title fights in total and some of the best fighters in kickboxing.
The first part of the card features six fights and is headlined by Andy Souwer vs. Chris Ngimbi for Ngimbi's It's Showtime 70MAX World Title. As is the norm for title fights this one will be five rounds. Expect fireworks.
Also on the first part is a rematch between Hesdy Gerges and Rico Verhoeven, two our LiverKick's current top 10 heavyweights. Gerges is coming off the loss to Daniel Ghita in January, while Rico Verhoeven is coming off a somewhat controversial loss to Sergei Lascenko. Also at heavyweight, with Jerome Le Banner out of the fight, Rustemi Kreshnik now faces Mourad Bouzidi. Marat Grigorian was originally supposed to face Berneung Topkingboxing, but now faces Aziz Kallah in a battle of two rising prospects at 73kg.
The second part of the card is the main attraction, featuring Peter Aerts in his return fight against Tyrone Spong. It's being hailed as his last fight in the Benelux and is a very special occasion, as Aerts is finally back to resume his legendary career.
Right under that fight is Daniel Ghita, who fights Dzevad Poturak for the third time. Originally supposed to face Harut Grigorian, Robin van Roosmalen faces Hafid el Boustati, as Grigorian was unable to get medical clearance for the fight. Still, it's an awesome fight regardless. There's also an It's Showtime 95MAX World Title fight, with the champion Danyo Ilunga fighting Filip Verlinden.
