K-1 considered to be the first and biggest kickboxing league between 1993 and 2013. It’s Showtime always was one of the biggest promotions besides K-1. Based in Amsterdam, The Netherlands and founded by Simon Rutz, It’s Showtime held its first show in 1999 and its last near the end of 2012. In the year 2012 GLORY World Series took over and became the biggest kickboxing promotion with the best fighters from all over the world. Rankings include Title Fights and World Championship Tournament Victories from K-1, I’ts Showtime and GLORY. In our opinion these kickboxers have won the biggest titles.
