As has been asked many times, an official arrival date for the devil prince himself has been announced on several social networking site. Badr Hari will be leaving next Tuesday for America to begin training with boxing trainer Naazim Richardson.
This will officially start Badr Hari’s new career in boxing. For Badr Hari, he now begins a new career of uncertainties, and hopefully new highs to go with his already amazing achievements in kickboxing. At twenty-seven years old, Hari’s learning-curve in boxing remains to be seen. While no one doubts how devastating his kicks are, questions have been raised about his hands, his chin, and his stamina. What Badr Hari has going for him, though, is a wide-open heavyweight division that desperately needs new, exciting blood.
Naazim Richardson is considered one of the top coaches in boxing, both wise, prophetic, and crafty at the same time. He is the man who discovered the plaster in Antonio Margarito’s hand-wraps. He is a by-product of the tough Philadelphia mentality that has borne the likes of Bernard Hopkins and Shane Mosley. He has been called the Yoda of boxing, and may be able to provide Badr Hari the wisdom and guidance he needs to succeed. Naazim is also a devout Muslim, who says that boxing “saved” his life from crime and poverty.
