Controversial kickboxing fighter Badr Hari is not going away anytime soon just as the fighter has been pitched against heavyweight champion Rico Verhoeven.

The 31-year-old fighter who has longed been known as the “Bad Boy” of kickboxing has been disqualified on two separate occasions throughout his kickboxing career. The first, for kicking a downed Remy Bonjasky in K-1 back in 2008, and the other for also kicking a downed Hesdy Gerges in 2010. The Bad Boy as pundits like to refer to him has also been involved in some arrests; served a few jail sentence and other assault charges.

However, despite his bad demeanor, the fighter seems to have a good standing with his longtime manager Passenier who said: "We made one deal when we started. I said, 'let me tell you one thing: I don't bother in your life, and you don't bother in mine. If you don't want to know my opinion then doesn’t ask.”

Passenier, who has had a significant reputation of working with talented fighters like Gokhan Saki and Murthel Groenhart has been the coach of Hari for well over a decade and believes the fighter would whip Verhoeven's Ass when both fighters go head to head at Glory collision.

According to Passnier, he and Hari had been training vigorously for Glory collision, and is optimistic that kickboxing firepower can once again prove his class by defeating Verhoeven when their showdown kicks off at Glory collision.

The showdown between Hari and Verhoeven has being billed as one of the biggest kickboxing fights of all time just as Hari’s coach Passenier said the match between this superstars reminds him of the old K-1, which had many legendary battles during its peak. One thing is sure, GLORY COLLISION, which is just days away will no doubt be electrifying.
