It's Showtime's event in Tenerife, Spain is a just a week away on July 21. One of the match-ups we were most looking forward to was Abraham Roqueñi vs. Andy Ristie, a battle of two of LiverKick's Top 10 70kg fighters.
Unfortunately, that fight isn't happening anymore as Abraham Roqueñi got injured. Replacing him is another Spanish fighter, David Calvo. Calvo is still a decent fighter and may be able to make it a bit competitive. Ristie and Calvo both have a common opponent in Jonay Risco. Ristie stopped Risco in the third round back in November at It's Showtime's first show in Tenerife, while Calvo won a decision over him on the undercard of the K-1 show in Madrid on May 27.
Both Ristie and Calvo really love throwing step-up knees, so expect a ton of them. Ristie has been on a tear as of late, demolishing Gago Drago in May and stopping Hinata in the first round in January. He also just fought two weeks ago at It's Showtime on June 30, again, crushing his opponent Samir Djabba in the first round.
