A bit of unfortunate news on top of some good news for this Wednesday evening. Nick Papadimitriou from Greece has sadly suffered from a broken jaw and was forced to pull out of his scheduled bout against Rafal Dudek at It's Showtime: Warsaw. There have been rumors over the past week that Papadimitriou might be injured and have to pull out, and It's Showtime confirmed those rumors today, but came with a very respectable fill-in for Nick in the way of Michal Glogowski.
Michal Glogowski made it into the Final 8 of the K-1 World MAX Championships, facing Yoshihiro Sato in the quarterfinal round, putting up a valiant effort and taking Sato all three rounds before losing a unanimous decision to him. Glogowski impressed none the less, so seeing the 26 year old fighter back in the spotlight will be a good thing. Glogowski is one of the young talents to look out for who could have a bright future.
Of course, he will face a stiff challenge from Rafal Dudek. Rafal Dudek is probably best known for his bout with Chahid Oulad el Hadj last December in It's Showtime. Dudek trains out of Mike's Gym in the Netherlands, which is known to be one of the top destinations for kickboxing training in the world. This will be a good battle between two younger Polish fighters, with the winner having a great springboard to the rest of 2011.
