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]

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]

Enfusion #56 Results: Ibrahim el Boustati Immersed in Controversy Again

Kickboxing is a sport that tends to just chug along. Events happen, fights happen, fighters win, they lose and occasionally something weird happens. Sometimes something REALLY weird happens, and what’s really odd is when it doesn’t involve Buakaw or Badr Hari.

Enfusion Consolidates Brands Into One Simple Name: Enfusion

For five years now, Enfusion has been bringing to the world its own brands of interesting events. Most of us in the kickboxing world have forgone their extraneous branding of Enfusion Live for their proper events, Enfusion Kickboxing Talents for their undercards, Enfusion Rookies for their up-and-comers and Enfusion Reality for their reality television series.
