Badr Hari will be in police custody for 90 days, which is reserved only for people who have a lot of evidence against them. This means that there is no way he will be able to compete in K1′s next event in October.
K1 has invested a lot in Badr Hari, and it seems at this point it has all come to nil. Badr Hari has been in this kind of trouble before, but has always seemed to escape serious jail-time. This time, however, the victim is an internet millionaire, and cannot be payed off like perhaps previous victims have been before.
Someone commented that Badr seems to be in a similar position that his hero, Mike Tyson, was in, when he was sent to jail for the rape of Desiree Washington. Once released, Mike Tyson, was never the same fighter that he was before. It remains to be seen what impact this event will have on Badr’s career. Whatever it is, Badr’s future career prospects look bleaker than ever. It will probably be a long time before we ever see Badr Hari in the ring again. What a waste of talent.
