The New Official Badr Hari Documentary Gets Inside of the Bad Boy's Head

  • Published in Kickboxing

Badr Hari's team has been working on an official documentary about Badr Hari now for a while, a rare look into the life of Badr Hari and for him to get on camera and talk about the highs and lows of his career. It was done in conjunction with our old friend Will "StillWill" Prescott, narrated by Michael Schiavello and shot by Eldar Gross, so you know that the quality for it will be top notch. It's fascinating to see how Badr reasons with some of the bigger mistakes in his career, notably the infamous bout with Remy Bonjasky in the 2008 K-1 finals and the Hesdy Gerges fight. His response was very telling, "I was like, fuck it." 

They even delve into Badr's legal troubles and his thoughts on the loss to Samedov. It's interesting to see how Badr transitioned to seeing fighting as a business as opposed to a passion and how it affected him both in and out of the ring.

Vinny Shoreman Hosting K-1 Open Tryouts

  • Published in K-1

ShoremanWhen Glory purchased It's Showtime, it did mean that the Kickboxing world was becoming partially united once again, but for commentators Vinny "Showtime" Shoreman and Kieran Keddle, it meant that their positions might be in a bit of limbo. We've been petitioning on Twitter for Shoreman and Keddle to keep their jobs, but it looks like we might be seeing them again soon, Shoreman at least. Of course, they will be doing the It's Showtime event in Tenerife, Spain, but on top of that, Vinny Shoreman will be in Los Angeles for K-1's Open Tryouts, serving as the host.

Sadly, Kieran was busy, but having Vinny there shows that K-1 is looking to secure some of the people that fans know and love. Shoreman is one of the few commentators in the sport whose pure love and passion for the sport comes across in every single event, much like Michael "The Voice" Schiavello. We very much look forward to hearing Shoreman at future events and hope that if he does begin working for K-1, that Kieran Keddle will join him as well, as they make for a very good team that many have grown very accustomed to and grown to love.
