ITíS SHOWTIME will organize a huge event on January 28, 2012 in The Netherlands. The location and the fight card will soon be announced. Weíre full steam ahead in the negotiations, but we can already announce some fighters which will participate to this event for sure: Badr Hari, Tyrone Spong, Hesdy Gerges, Daniel Ghita and Ben Edwards.
On this evening, there will be no less than 12 absolute world class fights. We would also like to know who you would like to see to fight against Badr Hari. This event might be the best and most stacked ITíS SHOWTIME fight card ever! The location, which we will soon announce, will have a maximum capacity of 5000 spectators, and there will only be 50 exclusive VIP tables on sale.
The presale starts on Saturday, October 15 and the entire fight card will be announced at the end of September. Check our website www.fight.nl or download our free app for your smartphone.
We had originally scheduled this event for the end of this year. However, since we still get signals from Japan that they want to organize a last 16 (Final Elimination) in October and the last 8 (Final) in December, we have decided to give K-1 the space and opportunity they need to make this work, because that would serve our sport well.
Anyway, the year 2012 will start in The Netherlands with a BANG!
