It's Showtime wraps up their year later today with a show from their home base in Amsterdam.
The main event is for the vacant 77kg title, and is between L'houcine "Aussie" Ouzgni and Artem Levin. Originally booked as Ouzgni challenging champion Cosmo Alexandre for the belt, the match was changed after Cosmo took part in the King's Cup tournament against IS's wishes, resulting in him being stripped of the title. Ouzgni v. Alexandre was a great fight on paper, but this is a good substitution. Both fighters are coming in off huge wins - Ouzgni's destruction of top 10 fighter Nieky Holzken, and Levin's upset victory over Yodsaenklai Fairtex. I like this fight, but Aussie is just too dominant right now; I expect him to take the win. This division is really gaining strength at the moment, and the winner here can make a claim to being at the top of the 77kg mountain.
The other big fight is in the 70kg division and is a potential show stealer between K-1 MAX Final 8 fighter Mo Khamal and Mosab Amrani. These are two popular fighter, who have gained strong fan support for their action-packed fights. This could be a classic.
Other fights on the main card are: K-1 2010 Europe GP champion Freddy Kemayo v. Anderson "Braddock" Silva; Warren Stevelmans v. Kenneth van Eesvelde; Murthel Groenhart v. Khlaid Bourdif; and, in a late replacement, Frank Munoz v. Rico Verhoeven.
The show will be streamed live at It's Showtime Fights for 10 Euro. Click here for details.
