Here is a video of Badr Hari warming up before his fight with Anderson Silva. It’s interesting to note that he is boxing and not working on his kicks at all.
Badr’s performance against Silva was, unfortunately, the worst I’ve seen him look in a long time. Even in his loss against Hesdy Gerges, he looked in magnificent shape, and only in January he looked devastating against Gokhan Saki.
Undoubtedly, the past few months have been turbulent for Badr Hari, who probably had to do some soul-searching before deciding to return to K1. It would seems that the result of a turbulent personal life resulted in an uneven and uninspired performance. Badr still claims that within a year he will return to heavyweight boxing, but a year is a long ways away, particularly in fighting years. Anything can happen in that time-span. He is scheduled to fight again in October for K1, and Badr has been unusually quiet about his performance against Silva. It will be interesting to hear what he has to say about it eventually.
