Last weekend on July 18, Giorgio Petrosyan picked up another win against Hinata Watanabe in the first It's Showtime Japan Countdown event. Petrosyan took a unanimous decision.

What we didn't know until now though, is that Petrosyan walked away with a broken hand. This isn't the first time he's broken his hand. It's happened atleast 4 times in the past 3 years. It's a re-occurring injury for Giorgio. The main problem seems to be that his hand has never gotten enough time to fully heal and thus breaks again. With the it's Showtime Fast & Furious 70MAX tournament exactly two months away, Giorgio will need to make a crucial decision. Let the hand heal properly and drop out of the tournament, or go into the tournament with the risk of making the hand worse and potentially lowering his chances to win. With Giorgio's hand currently in a cast, it's difficult to tell if he'll be able to compete in It's Showtime's tournament as he won't be able to punch anything with it for a while.

Here's an Italian news source, translated:

New win and a new injury to his left hand for Giorgio Petrosyan. In Japan, the two-time world champion K-1 World Max Japan beat the points Watanabe Hinata confirming once again the best fighter in the -70 kg category.

The athletes of Team Satori won all three rounds. The opponent has tried to win groped for all. Heedless of the arbitrator and admonitions, in all of the filming took punches upside prohibited by the regulation. To embarrass Petrosyan were, however, the 8 oz gloves: too light for the strength of his fists. As had already occurred in the past editions of the K-1 World Max, have not been able to absorb shock and a fracture to the hand that seemed to be resolved is reopened.
