Hari returning to K1 on May 27 for HW GP

Kickboxing fans rejoice - the news doesn't get much better than this. K-1 is back, and so is Badr Hari. Hari has officially been announced as competing on a K-1 show on May 27 in Madrid. Let me repeat that to let it really sink in:

Badr Hari is back in K-1.

A two time K-1 Grand Prix finalist, Hari retired from kickboxing earlier this year to pursue a boxing career. That boxing career is not finished, as he will still be training with highly regarded trainer Naazim Richardson (Hari and Richardson are currently working together) with the goal of being a boxing world champion within three years. But with the announcement of a K-1 Grand Prix in 2012, Hari decided to make one more run for the crown jewel of the kickboxing world that has long eluded him.

Here is what Hari had to say about his return:

Quote:
[K-1] have gone far in persuading me to show the world who is currently the best kickboxer on the planet. I think this is a beautiful challenge. At the same time, I will continue my planned route, with full enthusiasm, to become the world champion in boxing. I would love to retire internationally as the K-1 World Grand Prix champion. That's a title that's not yet on my record. K-1 has convinced me to say yes to their proposal of fighting one last time on the international stage.

Good move on his part, I dont think he would ever have been able to compete at the highest levels of boxing. His chin is questionable and his defense isnt anything to write home about either. I hope we get to see him face Ghita in the GP, that would be wicked.

He's fighting in the Grand Prix and then he's continuing his boxing goals, he said he wants to retire with the trophy. He's on a 3 year quest to be a heavyweight boxing champ, best of luck to him. I hope he becomes something great, he's a lot wilder than any boxer I can think of but he possesses big power and can land on anyone. I have a feeling he might lose his cool in a boxing match though and kick someone in the head.
