Quite a shocking defeat, Badr Hari suffered in the ninth month of last year. Pole Arkadiusz Wrzosek entered the match as a rather big outsider and everything led to a convincing victory for Badr Hari. No one could have expected such an outcome, especially those who are familiar with the qualities of Badr Hari, but unfortunately the situation has changed The Pole was counted twice in the first round, and Harry knocked him down once and in the second round.
However, Wrzosek seemed to be magically reborn after three counts and totally turned the match around with his left high kick. Wrzosek knocked out Hari with the mentioned blow and thus came to the biggest victory in his career.
That victory launched Wrzosek into third place in the Glory Challenger rankings in the heavyweight division, and the fight was called by Glory, the biggest comeback in the history of kickboxing. The good news for Harry is that the legendary Moroccan will have the opportunity to take instant revenge.
Namely, Hari and Wrzosek will cross their gloves again, at the Glory 80 event, which will be held on March 19 in Hasselt, Belgium. This will be a great opportunity for Badr Hari to avenge a defeat no one could have expected.
It is certain that he is more motivated than ever before, and that he will do his best to win this time. Of course, he will have to be much more careful than the previous time The information is transmitted by several Dutch portals (Sportnieuws.nl, Teleegraf).
Badr Hari stats
Badr Hari will be looking for his first victory since 2015 and celebrating against Ismael Londt. Four defeats and one "no contest" were recorded by Badr Hari in the period after that. It is clear that the Moroccan is not in the shape he used to be, but he still has the quality and what it takes to get back to the very top.
If Badr Hari also loses in the rematch with the Pole, that could be his definitive end. The Moroccan is 37 years old, and in the last two defeats (Wrzosek and Adegbuyi) he suffered quite severe knockouts. His opponent Arkadiusz Wrzosek will have the opportunity to prove that he belongs to the very top of the heavyweight category.
Apart from Harry and Wrzosek, Artem Vakhitov and Luis Tavares (for the light heavyweight championship belt) and Jamal Ben Saddik and Levi Rigters will compete in the Glory 80 event. Badr Hari or Arkadiusz Wrzosek?
