Before It's Showtime's huge event on June 30 in Brussels, they'll be holding an event, also in Belgium on May 12. From looking at the card, it's a much smaller event in a smaller city in Kotrijk, Belgium. Overall, there aren't many "names" on the card but there should still be some good action. Credit to It's Showtime should also be given for scheduling this event in between the large gap from their last event to the June 30 one.
Headlining the card is a 70kg match-up where rising star Harut Grigorian takes on Chahid Oulad El Hadj. Grigorian is well recognized as one of the best up and coming fighters in kickboxing after his surprise close encounter with Andy Souwer and his domination of Chris Ngimbi. He last fought on February 11 at a very small show in Belgium, stopping his opponent in the first round. Chahid had a terrible 2011, losing three fights and having one of his fights go to a no contest. He had really bad luck, getting his balls smashed twice. He has the type of style to make this fight a great one.
Sahak Parparyan will defend his It's Showtime 85MAX World Title against the England-based American, Andrew Tate. Tate was on the same 85kg third season of Enfusion with Parparyan and both of them had advanced to the finals of the show. Sahak has established himself as the top fighter at the weight and he's only getting better so it should be interesting to see if Tate can present any major challenges for the champion.
Sergei Lascenko makes his debut under the It's Showtime banner and he'll take on Salah Edine Kandoussi. This seems like just a squash match for Lascenko. There's absolutely nothing at all on the internet about his opponent.
