Full It’s Showtime: Badr Hari vs. Gokhan Saki Results

It’s Showtime 55: Badr Hari vs. Gokhan Saki took place last night at the WTC Expo in Leeuwarden, Friesland, the Netherlands. The event was headlined by Badr Hari‘s last fight inside the kickboxing ring, against no other than the long-time foe Gokhan Saki. Hari was able to knock down Sak three times in Round 1, to the joy of the ecstatic fans in the arena.

Co-main event of the night featured Daniel Ghita’s rematch with the reigning (now former) It’s Showtime Heavyweight Champion Hesdy Gerges. Ghita was able to dictate the pace during the fight, before flattening Gerges with a brutal left hook. Ghita (40-7) is now expected to square off against Errol Zimmerman in his first title defense, after “The Bonecrusher” viciously knocked out the 22-year old up and comer Rico Verhoeven on the same card.

Finally, Robin “Pokerface” van Roosmalen continued his impressive streak with a victory over Murat Direkci. Both fighters went toe-to-toe during all five rounds. The judges awarded RvR a 4 to 1 decision victory over Direkci, who announced his retirement after the fight.

    I didn’t see these fights. Are they worth tracking down? Are they available on line (legally)?

    You must be one of those cool guys who loves watching a guy who is out on his feet and may have already suffered a concusion get knocked out or take more damage. Nice guy

    I doubt you will get them on line legally, but illegally yes.

    Great fights and I think if you enjoy kickboxing you need t watch the main event, the retirement fight of one of the all-time best in K-1 and a potential superstar in boxing in the future.

    It doesn’t seem to make a lot of sense Hari leaving kickboxing, there are still some top name fighters he should face again, such as Ghita, Spong and even Schilt again.
    He looked amazing against one of the best kickboxers alive I just feel like he should stay in kickboxing a while but to be fair he mainlyused his hands last night and looked great doing it, I hope he does well in boxing.

    He has some issues mentally and can be a nutcase at times but I think he truly is a good guy.
    If you want to know more about him watch the hour long interview with him – “The Voice vs. Badri Hari”
