Badr Hari just beat Alexey Ignashov. This was a given, since Alexey Ignashov is only a shadow of the former heavyweight who once knocked out Semmy Schilt. But now that he’s back in the win column, he still has that pesky problem of a looming trial where he has been charged with assault and permanently disabling a man. Badr Hari needs to do these three things to get back on track to being the greatest heavyweight kickboxer.
One: Resolve His Legal Problems Once And For All
If Badr Hari is able to resolve this upcoming trial, he should make extra sure to stay out of anymore legal problems. Despite seeming to mature over the years, he has repeatedly disappointed his fans by derailing any career momentum he’s attained by getting in deep trouble with the law.
Two: Break Up With Estelle Gullit
This isn’t an indictment on Estelle Gullit, but the disastrous turns his career has taken since taking up with her. Once a gloried kickboxer who proudly represented his native country of Morocco, he now has become a tawdry tabloid staple. His in-ring performances have become dismal, and he has seemed to have lost all focus on training properly for a very demanding and dangerous career.
Three: Sign With GLORY
GLORY is pretty much the only relevant kickboxing organization around. K1 is in the middle of a massive restructuring, and GLORY has been pumping out card after card filled with exciting fights and top-level kickboxers. If Badr Hari is able to re-focus himself, he needs to join GLORY if he ever wants to re-establish himself as the greatest current heavyweight kickboxer. Even his haters, will admit that Badr Hari is a very naturally talented kickboxer.
