Glory 35 Heavyweight Tournament

  • Published in Glory

The Glory 35 card in Nice, France has been finalized by adding the second bracket to the heavyweight tournament. The tournament is the same as their previous heavyweight tournament in Denver at Glory 24 with the exception of Ben Edwards being replaced by Hesdy Gerges.

The first half of the tournament will be a rematch between Benjamin Adegbuyi and Hesdy Gerges. These two met at Glory 18: Oklahoma with Adegbuyi winning the decision, now Gerges is out for revenge. If Gerges can get past Benny then he has a chance to possibly fight Jahfarr Wilnis and avenge another loss so this is a big opportunity for Hesdy.

The second half of the tournament has Jahfarr Wilnis against Mladen Brestovac both the fighters that Adegbuyi defeated to win the first tournament. Wilnis has been so close to a fight with heavyweight champ Rico Verhoeven for a while now especially after winning the Kunlun Tournament but it keeps just slipping through his fingers, winning this tournament is exactly what he needs guarantee that fight. Brestovac already fought Rico this year and lost a decision but his style made Rico look mediocre so I’m sure he’d love one more try.

Badr Hari Wants Rico Verhoeven Rematch in May or June

  • Published in Glory

The fight that many believed would never happen between Badr Hari and Rico Verhoeven did happen, but the ending was perhaps bittersweet and exactly the kind of letdown that fans have grown accustomed to when it comes to the sport of kickboxing under-delivering on big promises. So while the fight was put together, the fighters ready to brawl and the arena packed full of passionate fans, the outcome was Badr Hari forfeiting thanks to an injury. 

Rico Verhoeven immediately offered Badr a rematch in the ring, to which Badr Hari replied in amiable fashion to, although still denigrating his opponent. The scorecards reflected that the judges had Badr Hari winning the first round, but the fight was far from over, especially considering a strike from Verhoeven is ultimately what injured Hari and forced the stoppage. For fans a conclusion to this fight is not only desirable, but almost a necessity. In an interview with John O'Regan, Hari claimed that he was looking to plan for a rematch in May or June, although he still didn't seem to respect his opponent.

“That's why it was so sour that I had to stop. But be honest, did you see me worrying, or in trouble? Like I said in the ring [after the fight], he became a man but he needs to be more to beat me. He is still not in my league.”

Hari's punching power and explosiveness are legendary, as are his temper both in and out of the ring. Legal issues have kept him away from the ring during what could have been the prime of his career and still haunt him to this day, everything from where he can actually get a license to fight to working around court dates and the uncertainty of the future. 

A rematch seems in order as long as both men are up for it and the asking prices don't fly through the roof. Right now the sport needs the rematch, if not to clear up the debate of who is the better fighter, to deliver on a promise and help build up the reputation of the sport once again.

Badr Hari To Return to Dutch Jail For Assault Charges

  • Published in Glory

After Badr Hari's previous two-year sentence was partially suspended, Dutch Supreme Courts decided today that Badr Hari would need to return to jail to serve the remainder of his sentence. This comes as a blow to anyone hoping for a rematch between Badr Hari and Rico Verhoeven and also explains why the public talk shifted from that to Rico Verhoeven to Remy Bonjasky in recent weeks.

Badr Hari will now be forced to serve the remaining six months of his time in jail in a Dutch prison after his failed appeal. This should be the end of the long, sad tale of Koen Everink after the middle-aged business-man was assaulted at a Dutch dance party at the Amsterdam ArenA all the way back in 2012. Hari plead that he had only hit Everink once, but the evidence pointed towards a more sustained assault, including a plate in his skull and needing surgery on his ankle to hold him together. Everink was found murdered in March of last year in what looks to be an unrelated assault. 

With Everink deceased and Badr serving the remainder of his sentence this should all be behind us, for now. Of course, if Badr reports to prison. [source]

Krush 68 Fight Card

  • Published in Kickboxing

Krush 68 takes place tonight in Nagoya, Japan at the Nagoya Congress Center. The card will air live on Abema.tv if you are "IN" Japan, it wont be on their sports channel this time but on their designated fight channel which is shown by some Japanese kanji symbols. Aside from the great talent and usual crazy fights Krush always gives us this card as a special exhibition between Kaew Weerasakreck the K-1 65kgs champ and Takeru the K-1 55kgs champ. The fight is 3x2min rounds, I wonder how hard they will actually go. Hopefully its the type of exhibition that Masato and Kid Yamamoto had where Kid got dropped multiple times.

Fight Card

Kuroudo vs Shun Kato

Daiki Shimizu vs Takuma Kawaguchi

Seiya Ueda vs Kazuyuki Yamashita

Kentaro Miyachi vs Syun Kentoshi

Kazunari Kimura vs Daisuke Fujimara

Yokkao in Talks to Bring Popular Brand of Gear and Fight Shows to the US

  • Published in Muay Thai

Yokkao is one of those brands that started out small, then was able to grow with their products increasing in quality and prominence while they started sponsoring bigger and bigger name fighters and even hosting their fights at Yokkao branded events. After a whirlwind of attention (over 1.7 million Instagram views in ten days), Yokkao is looking to further enter the US market. 

While Yokkao has dipped its toes in the US waters before, they are looking now to find a distributor for Yokkao products to cut costs for those in the US looking to attain said goods, as well as places to host seminars, workshops and fight events. A large volume of their products are shipped internationally to fans and fighters in the US and having a distributor in the US will allow for prices to drop significantly.
