PRESS RELEASE (08.05.2012): Countdown to IT’S SHOWTIME 56: spectacular world title fight.
Coming Saturday, May 12, marks the day of one of the most controversial IT’S SHOWTIME world title fights ever, as ‘Siam Gym Belgium presents IT’S SHOWTIME 56’ in Kortrijk, Belgium.
The reigning IT’S SHOWTIME world champion 85kg max, Sahak ‘Hak’ Parparyan from Armenia, will defend his title against the challenger from the USA, Andrew Tate.
Tate is not one to be shy on his IT’S SHOWTIME debut, as he suggested to bet Parparyan for € 1000. The tough Armenian showed his determination and even wants to raise the bet to € 5000! Tate, while introducing himself in a self-recorded video, responded in that same video, telling the current champion “you don’t know what you’re getting yourself into” .
The complete video of Andrew Tate and it looks like kickboxing fans get to meet a fighter who knows how to talk the talk, but the inevitable question is: can he walk the walk? Please look PRESS RELEASE (06.05.2012) at the bottom.
It will be a champion-versus-champion fight, as Tate is an ISKA world champion. “He should be happy if he survives 5 rounds with me. And if he does, he needs a visit to the hospital and he’ll have to eat through a straw. Also, after he fights me, he won’t be able to walk for a while,” so said Parparyan.
Tate has scored many victories by (T)KO, but ‘Hak’ is not easily impressed: “Andrew Tate fought nothing but cans. This time he will find out the difference between fighting a champion and fighting a pipsqueak.”
It promises to be a very intense staredown at the weigh-ins on Friday and an action-packed fight on Saturday!
Also starring on the fight card is the current IT’S SHOWTIME world heavyweight champion Daniel Ghita. The Romanian who impressively knocked out Hesdy Gerges, something even Badr “GOLDEN BOY” Hari couldn’t accomplish, will take on Brian Douwes. While Douwes may not be the most well-known kickboxer, he is a tough guy and not afraid of a challenge, proven by the fact that he steps in for dropout Sebastien van Thielen on short notice against a dangerous man like Ghita.
