It's Showtime Announces New May Show

  • Published in Kickboxing

It's ShowtimeMore news from the ever-busy It's Showtime - this time it's a new show added to their 2011 schedule.  On May 21, the company returns to The Sand in Amsterdam for It's Showtime 48, and there is already a solid partial line-up announced.

In a Heavyweight fight, It's Showtime HW champion and top 10 ranked Hesdy Gerges will face Chris Knowles.  Knowles is a well regarded English Muay Thai stylist.  He was originally set to face Rico Verhoeven for IS late last year, but was forced off the card due to travel difficulties.  He's a good pick up for It's Showtime, and will make a strong addition to their Heavyweight ranks, although he definitely has a tough task ahead of him here.  Gerges will be coming in off his career high win over Daniel Ghita, and will look to continue his rise through the ranks.

The fight that most has my attention is a 70kg bout between Mohamed Khamal and Robin van Roosmalen.  Khamal made the jump up to 70kg last year, and promptly made an impact, winning the K-1 West Europe GP, knocking Artur Kyshenko out of the MAX GP, and putting on one of the best fights of 2010 in his defeat of Mosab Amrani.  He has quickly established himself as both a dynamic fighter, and a real force in the Middleweight division.  van Roosmalen is in almost the exact same position as Khamal was not long ago.  The young fighter is currently on a five fight win streak, including defeats of William Diender and an impressive win over Chahid Oulad el Hadj.  Like Khamal, he is a rising fighter, and is poised to be one of the break out fighters of 2011.  This will be a rematch, as the two men met in the semi-finals of last year's 2010 K-1 MAX West Europe GP - Khamal took that fight via 2nd round KO en route to claiming the tournament crown.  With two exciting, young, hungry fighters, this has all the ingredients to not only steal the show, but be a highlight fight of 2011.

One other fight to note is Anderson "Braddock" Silva vs. Jamal Ben Saddik.  Saddik is the fighter who scored a surprise KO win over Rico Verhoeven at It's Showtime 46 last month.  If he can score back to back win over Verhoeven and Silva, he will have immediately established himself as a serious challenger, and a name to watch.  Silva is a tough challenge though, as he holds some big wins over the likes of Hesdy Gerges and Freddy Kemayo, who he KO'd with a spectacular head kick to close out 2010.

The full line-up announced so far:

HESDY GERGES vs. CHRIS KNOWLES

ROBIN VAN ROOSMALEN vs. MOHAMED KHAMAL

ANDERSON SILVA vs. JAMAL BEN SADDIK

MOHAMED MEDHAR vs. HAFID EL BOUSTATI

AMIR ZEYADA vs. SAHAK PARPARYAN

JASON WILNIS vs. LAURENT ATRIFFI

Qabala Fight Series #1 Results

  • Published in Europe

Qabala fight series put on their first event on June 29th, 2014, it seemed like a great event overall except for Jamal Ben Saddik pulling a Badr Hari and kicking and punching Hesdy Gerges while he was down. 20 seconds into the fight Ben Saddik caught Gerges leg, plowed him to the ground then proceeded to soccer kick and then try to ground and pound him, absolute stupidity and bad for the sport to have fighters that cannot control their emotions.

Qabala Fight Series #1 Videos

  • Published in Kickboxing

Here are a few of the fight videos from Qabala Fight Series #1 on June 29th, 2014. Starting with Albert "The Hurricane" Kraus getting back to his winning ways by putting massive amounts of pressure, moving forwards and throwing fast, powerful hand combinations. Erkhan Varol is an explosive, tricky fighter but very short for the weight class so Kraus was able to use his size wisely to take the decision. Not taking anything away from Varol, he put up a great fight against a dutch kickboxing legend.

Next we have Mosab Amrani making short work of Lim Chi-Bin. The actual fight starts at 4:50 of the video after what seems like the longest intro ever. About 50 seconds into the first round Amrani lands a perfect switch left knee to the liver of Chi-Bin, once he gets up its just a matter of time before its going to get hit again and it comes by way of left body kick 20 seconds later.

Last of all Hesdy Gerges against Jamal Ben-Saddik just so everyone can watch how ridiculous this was. We can all wonder what could have possibly been going through Saddik's mind during this absolutely uncalled for insane behavior, and poor Hesdy hes been assaulted like this twice in the ring, first time was by Badr Hari back in 2010 on It's Showtime. Saddik's was worse though not only did he throw a kick while he was down, but he paused then proceeded to try and ground and pound Gerges, not to mention this was barely even 20 seconds into the fight.
