Badr Hari Found Guilty, Sentenced to One and a Half Years in Prison

Badr

Badr Hari's legal troubles have been the talk of the last few years, turning what was the most promising Kickboxing career into a circus sideshow. Badr Hari was just seconds away from being the best Heavyweight Kickboxer in the world multiple times, but something was brewing inside of him that would ensure that his Kickboxing career would get derailed in a big way; his temper. Badr Hari and assault were not uncommon, but the latest case about an assault on Koen Everink was enough to finally get everyone's attention.

Badr Hari spent seven months in prison already due to the case and it has plagued his last few years, making his career the means to pay for his legal fees, being very secondary to his courtroom worries. Today was Badr Hari's sentencing in the Netherlands and it looks like, at least in part, justice was served in the case as Badr Hari was sentenced to serve 18 months in prison, six suspended. Due to him already serving seven months in the lead up to the case this means that Badr Hari will have to serve at least five months of this sentence.

As for if he'll serve the sentence, that is another thing. There are already talks of appeals in the process and that Badr Hari won't serve his prison sentence just yet due to the immediate appeal being filed. So Badr will have his day in court yet again in the near future.

Oktagon/LEGEND Event Confirmed for April 5th

LEGEND

Over the weekend Ruslan from LEGEND might have let the cat out of the bag about the upcoming LEGEND event in Italy, but the details were still a bit sparse. From the reports that we heard it would involve Carlo Di Blasi's Oktagon as well as some rumors about who might end up on the card. Now last night LEGEND tweeted out an image with two interesting fights on it. As you can see from the image above, the fights so far are Artur Kyshenko vs. Dzabar Askerov and Yuri Bessmetrney vs. Andy Souwer. Those are two big bouts and it looks like it'll be Souwer's first fight of the year post-appendicitis back in December.
