Rumors Point to Badr Hari Possibly Signing with GLORY Soon

  • Published in Glory

Badr Hari

This one has been brewing since the weekend, but there have been reports of Badr Hari and GLORY coming to an agreement and Badr Hari potentially fighting on the GLORY 16 Denver card. LiverKick became aware of this rumor earlier in the week but as is our policy, unless it comes from a firsthand source or there are multiple, independent sources to verify said information, we don't run it. Since the cat is out of the bag, we are now sharing this information with you.

This comes hot off of the heels of Badr Hari being found guilty last week in his trial and sentenced to 18 months in prison. Both sides filed for immediate appeals, which means that Badr Hari is not in jail, in fact he was in attendance as a "special guest" at this past weekend's K-1 World MAX Final Four event in Azerbaijan. Badr Hari's next scheduled fight is on May 17th in Holland against Ismael Londt, making a May 3rd booking in the United States seem a bit more unlikely. There is also the fact that obtaining a work visa in the United States would be a difficult task for Badr Hari considering the recent conviction.

We've reached out to GLORY for comment on this story and multiple sources have denied this rumor. The timing of such a signing seems way off, especially with his ongoing legal issues. There is this message on his official Facebook, but understand that Badr Hari doesn't handle his social media and will at times decide that someone that he commissioned to handle his social media is no longer the "official voice of Badr Hari."

  • Published in Muay Thai

Muay Thai legend Saenchai has landed in New York and is all set for his round of seminars that are set to go down on the 13th, 14th and 15th at the Striking 101 Gym in New York City. Pakorn was initially supposed to accompany Saenchai, but due to visa issues Saenchai will be going it alone without Pakorn.

There are a host of UFC, MMA and Kickboxing stars that are to be in attendance for Saenchai's NYC seminars, with Uriah Hall's name being tossed around as one of the names that has requested some time with the legendary Thai fighter. We'll have an update with what his schedule looks like further in the coming days. Here's a look at some highlights from his seminar in Kuala Lumpur.

Warman's Kickfighting Show #54 and #55, Listen to Us Dissect the Kickboxing World

  • Published in Interviews

podcast

In episode 54 of the Warman Kickfighting Show I once again join Steven Wright to discuss the happenings of the Kickboxing and Muay Thai worlds. As Steven was in attendance at the UFC event over the weekend cornering Shane Roller of Team Takedown, which meant travel, this show which was supposed to be up sooner took a little bit longer, but it was worth it. We work out any technical issues we had the first time around and take a look at the recent K-1 MAX, It's Showtime and Thai Fight events, as well as SuperKombat and Mike Zambidis having a successful comeback fight after the loss to JWP.

It was a lot to cover and we did so in the course of an hour, with a look at how stars are made within the tournament format and how there are a lot of bright spots coming up in the kickboxing world, especially at 70kg. (Direct Download)

There is a whole lot to cover and we do our best, which leads us into the next episode! The next episode we take a long, hard look at the loss of Badr Hari, Gokhan Saki and possibly Tyrone Spong from the kickboxing world and just what that means. We also look at how Hari and Saki would potentially make a Boxing career work and what impact they could really have. There has been a lot of negative stuff going around focusing on lack of depth of talent and a lot of that simply is not true, as we go into depth on these issues and more. (Direct Download)

Bob Sapp Once Again Goes Down

  • Published in Video

At this point, Bob Sapp fighting is clearly not a good idea. We've all discussed how over the years he has been smart with his money and how he has made a lot out of a little, but at this point it is clear that he can go no further in the fighting world. Winning a fight against even lesser competition seems to be far from his grasp. As a fighter, you simply cannot fix the inability to take a punch. We've seen this in recent, high profile cases like Brock Lesnar retiring from the UFC and returning to the WWE after a string of losses where as soon as he got hit he'd turtle up. This is where Bob Sapp is right now, and it is time for him to pack it in. His latest fight was against Rok Strucl and Sapp actually put forth some effort, rushing in like he was looking for the kill but did not, at all, do it with precision or power.

Kunlun Books Sitthichai vs. Yodsanklai for December

  • Published in Kickboxing

Fans of Sitthichai Sitsongpeenong know that not only has Sitthichai been competing in the GLORY ring, but he's also been competing in China's premier kickboxing league in Kunlun. Under the Kunlun banner Sitthichai has wins over both Murthel Groenhart and Andy Souwer. While his last fight may have been disappointing against Robin van Roosmalen, his next fight is nothing short of a dream match for fans of kickboxing and muay thai.

That fight is against Yodsanklai Fairtex. 

While the big fight that everyone has wanted may be Buakaw Banchamek vs. Yodsanklai Fairtex, Buakaw's management and those in control of his career seem to be doing everything in their power to ensure that fight won't happen. At this point that is just a reality that fans will have to face. But Yodsanklai vs. Sitthichai? That's a big fight and one that fans should be over-the-moon about. 

Here's what the entire card looks like this far, from Kiksie.

Tournament Semifinal #1 - 80kg

Artur Kyshenko (Ukraine) vs. Dmitry Valent (Belarus)

Tournament Semifinal #2 - 80kg

Bai Jinbin (China) vs. Arthit Hanchana (Thailand)

Middleweight World Championship Tournament Quarterfinal #1 – 70kg

Kong Lingfeng (China) vs. Victor Nagbe (Australia)

Middleweight World Championship Tournament Quarterfinal #2 – 70kg
