Follow-Up on Enfusion Promoter’s Claims Against Badr Hari

Last week we learned that GLORY had secured the services of Badr Hari and that he’ll be fighting on March 3rd in Rotterdam. Today we learned that his opponent will be none other than Hesdy Gerges, a man that has a win over him via DQ back in 2010. But what about that claim from an Enfusion promoter that Enfusion had secured Badr Hari’s rights for a fight in May against Luis Tavares? He hasn’t forgotten. The latest on the case sounds like things are relatively hopeless for the Enfusion team, because they know they can’t stop him from fighting. [read more]

Badr Hari vs. Hesdy Gerges II Headlines GLORY 51 Rotterdam

The Bad Boy is back. While there might be some promoters claiming legal agreements with Badr and his team, GLORY feels confident moving forward and Badr Hari will be competing on March 3rd in Rotterdam and GLORY has picked an opponent from his past. Who, exactly? One of the few men with a win over Badr Hari, Hesdy Gerges. If you remember back to 2010, it was a different time for kickboxing and for both men.

Enfusion Promoter Pursuing Legal Action Against Badr Hari, Claiming They Had An Agreement

The big news coming out of this past weekend was that elusive bad boy of the kickboxing world, Badr Hari, had finally put his name on the dotted line with GLORY kickboxing.

Kickboxing isn’t exactly a sport that a fighter can jump around from promoter to promoter and make a steady living like boxing [read more]

Rico Verhoeven Stops Jamal Ben Saddik in Fifth Round at GLORY: Redemption

The culmination of GLORY’s big, year-end GLORY: Redemption event was a catharsis worth the wait when Rico Verhoeven, who was on his way to what was most likely a decision victory over Jamal Ben Saddik, was able to put away one of the few men with a win over the champion late in the fifth round, sealing off GLORY’s 2017 with a bang. pic.twitter.com/0gS6mgWqtM — Streetfight Bancho (@streetfitebanch) December 9, 2017 While Ben Saddik was looking strong early, having Rico hurt in round one, he began to lose steam in round two, with Verhoeven taking over by controlling the pace [read more]

GLORY Announces the Return of Badr Hari at GLORY 51 Rotterdam

In perhaps one of the biggest signings that GLORY has made in years now, GLORY announced today during the GLORY: Redemption broadcast that Badr Hari has signed a multi-fight, long-term contract with GLORY that will bear fruit on March 3rd at GLORY 51 Rotterdam. Hari, last seen at GLORY: Collision last December, has had his share of legal problems and has mulled over retiring from the sport for years now, but with his legal problems seemingly behind him, GLORY was able to lure the biggest free agent in kickboxing to sign and compete in the heavyweight division. While his opponent [read more]

LiverKick Podcast Revival: December 15th, 2016 GLORY: Collision Fallout and More

So. It’s been a while since LiverKick has done a podcast, hasn’t it? In fact, I don’t even want to know how long it’s been. That’s okay, though, because we made the conscious decision to jump right back into it and the fallout from GLORY: Collision seemed like the perfect opportunity for that. All it took was near-perfect timing for Jay and I, a time when our kids were asleep and not being crazy, then we were a go. There was a lot to talk about, that’s for sure. The topics range from Badr Hari vs. Rico fallout, talk about [read more]
