Badr Hari signed a multiple fight contract it was announced last night at Glory 49 SuperFight Series with GLORY Kickboxing dropping an epic video trailer to break the news prior-to, Glory: Redemption commencing at, the Ahoy Rotterdam. However, GLORY CEO, Jon Franklin confirmed to K1ANOOP that GLORY Kickboxing are confident of arranging for, Badr Hari to fight again in Amsterdam in 2018 (video below).
Glory: Redemption was headlined by a successful title defence for GLORY heavyweight champion, Rico Verhoeven with, an emphatic fifth round KO of, Jamal Ben Saddik in what was a much anticipated rematch from six years; Saddik had previously stopped Verhoeven six years ago. Rico would redeem himself in a thrilling year end event for the promotion which, was capped-off with the signing of kickboxing’s “Golden Boy”, Badr Hari.
The rematch between Rico Verhoeven and Badr Hari is still (and has been) a top priory for GLORY as Jon Franklin mentioned when speaking after Glory Redemption but where and when are some of the key questions:
“Do we take him back to Amsterdam for a major event with Rico? Does he fight somebody first? Like I said that would be up-to Team Badr Hari.”
Hari’s return fight for GLORY will be on March 3, 2017 at the Ahoy Rotterdam with strong rumours circulating that heavyweight rival, Benjamin Adegbuyi is on the short-list of potential opponents along with, three-time K-1 champion, Remy Bonjasky; Enfusion two-weight champion, Luis Tavares; Patrice Quateron; Hesdy Gerges; and Daniel Ghita.
K1ANOOP will report again as the situation develops further.
