Many kickboxers have tried their hand at pro boxing in the past, much like Albert Kraus did earlier this month. I think it's always a good thing because it gives fighter the opportunities to stay active and also improve their boxing skills.

Tomorrow in Antwerp, Belgium, BFN Group, who have partnered with It's Showtime many times, are putting on Boxing Fight Night. Most notably to us, there are a number of kickboxers venturing into boxing on the card, with the most notable one being Harut Grigorian, a K-1 and It's Showtime veteran.

Harut Grigorian will fight Hovhannes Kishmiryan (2-10), in a fight that he should definitely win. Grigorian has fought pro boxing once before, back in March of 2011 where he went to a draw with Ahmed El Ghoulbzouri.

Marc de Bonte is one of the up and coming fighters to look out for at around 77-81kg in kickboxing and he's fighting Murthel Groenhart at GLORY's show in Brussels on October 6. Before that though, he's also fighting at Boxing Fight Night against the 4-0 Belgian fighter Arno Castelyan. de Bonte has also had one prior boxing match, where he defeated Antonio Manuel back in November. 

Another up and coming Belgian kickboxer is also on the card in Cedric de Kiersmaeker, as he takes on Karim Larbi. de Kiersmaeker will be making his pro boxing debut.

Aside from the fights I mentioned, there's also some good European boxing action with both males and females, if you're into boxing like I am. Full fight card, along with records and information on the fighters can be found here.
