Early Card For KNOCK OUT vol.1 Plus 2017 Schedule

After what was an exciting inaugural event for the Japanese promotion KNOCK OUT with their vol.0 event, featuring Tenshin Nasukawa's insane spinning back kick knockout and a six-fight event that featured a staggering five knockouts, the promotion is ready to march into 2017 by announcing their next four events. They will be running three events in Ota-City General Gymnasium, which can accommodate for 4,100 spectators, while once again running Tokyo Dome City Hall (formerly JCB Hall) in the summer, which they ran their first event at and can hold about 3,100 fans. 

What they've released of the card thus far is merely a list of names, but the inclusion of Genji Umeno and Tenshin Nasukawa once again should definitely be a crowd pleaser.

Rico Verhoeven and Badr Hari's Historic Clash Sees Unfortunate Ending

The most anticipated heavyweight kickboxing fight in years went down tonight in Germany at GLORY: Collision. The atmosphere was beyond electric when Rico Verhoeven came down the ramp first, ignoring his champion status for the crowd favorite and living legend Badr Hari. Hari was second, making his typical entrance through the crowd. The crowd absolutely mobbed Hari, to the point where when Hari stepped into the ring about seventy or so fans attempted to follow him, jumping the railing, filling up the ramp and trying to storm the ring.

To say that it was chaos would be an understatement.

After minutes of the team attempting to clear the ring, they finally did and it was underway. Both men were staring daggers at each other and the first round was perhaps one of the most tense rounds that we've seen in years. Badr was landing his jabs, but Rico was controlling the ring and scoring with low, middle and the occasional high kicks. 

The second round saw Hari land a big hook, but Verhoeven land a big head kick. Rico, frustrated with Hari went for a clinch and pushed him against the ropes, landing two big knees to the arm. When they broke, Badr turned his back and walked to the corner, referee Atsushi Onari starting a count with Badr not answering the count. Apparently he suffered an injury to his arm and did not wish to continue. 

Rico agreed to fight Badr Hari again and was complimentary while Hari was somewhat complimentary, but wasn't willing to call him the best just yet. Badr called Rico over. "Next year, I swear, I'll knock you the fuck out."
