    Default It's Showtime Oktagon 2009 - Milan (Souwer vs. Petrosyan)

    I almost forgot this event was even happening, but luckily I was able to catch a replay. I can't say I really had heard much about Giorgio Petrosyan before now, but he is a very slick fighter, and he used just about everything in his arsenal to keep Andy Souwer off-balance and out of his range. The fight got dramatic when the judges unexpectedly ruled it a draw after three rounds despite Petrosyan seeming to be in control of the exchanges. Things got even more heated when Souwer was dropped by a punch in the extension round and the referee declined to give him a count. But in the end the judges saw things the way of his incredibly agitated corner crew and gave him the decision, in what has to be considered a major upset.

    On the undercard, Sahin "Kaas" Yakut looked solid in demolishing his oppenent in under a minute, and Hassan el Hamzaoui used a never ending barrage of flashy spinning kicks en route to a comfortable decision. Overall it was a pretty sweet card; the venue looked packed, and Petrosyan getting the big win makes things even more interesting for the big Amsterdam Arena show in May.

    Wow smooge I've never even heard of the "It's Showtime" events. How do you find theses things??? Judging by the gifs it looked like a very exciting event to watch and I'll have to watch the youtube vid when I get home cause I do loves me my kickboxing. Thanks again... I'm definitely surprised by the sower defeat as he's usually a rock solid fighter but that just goes to show that there is so much talent all around the world. Amazing spinning back crescent kick by Hassan... He looks like he's got TKD skills ala Serkin Yilmaz wish he was still in K-1.
