Badr Hari vs. Ismael Londt Cancelled

Badr Hari

In what might be the least shocking bit of news to Kickboxing fans, the fight in May between Badr Hari and Ismael Londt has been cancelled. This confirms reports that we've been hearing for at least the past few weeks that the Gunyar brothers, who were promoting the fight, were having issues acquiring a license to promote an event in Eindhoven (which shares Amsterdam's laws in this case). This, of course, comes as zero shock if you've been following Dutch Kickboxing.

There have been incredibly heavy restrictions set on Kickboxing events in Amsterdam and neighboring cities thanks to a law called BIBOB that is targeted at organized crime. The school of thought was that Kickboxing events held within the city would always pander to certain "VIPs" from the world of organized crime, thus making them meeting places for criminals. The city of Amsterdam wanted to clean up their reputation and saw this as a natural way to do so.

It didn't matter how legitimate of a business the Gunyars were going to run, trying to promote a convicted criminal with known ties to organized crime in an event in Amsterdam was never, ever going to work. According to Badr Hari's Facebook page, "May 29th in Dubai" seems to be his next stop.

Paul Daley (C) Fight Channel

On Friday Final Fight Championships 12 (FFC 12) will go down in Slovenia. The main event of the evening features recently-signed by K-1 fighter Paul "Semtex" Daley against Miran Fabjan. There were heated words from Daley and Fabjan at each other in the lead up to the event at the official press conference.

"Of course, I watch footage of all my opponents and I was kind of familiar with Miran because he fought one of the guys I fought earlier this year... Alexander Stetsurenko, something like that. Tough Russian guy. Doesn't matter what his name was 'cuz je got knocked out in thirty seconds“, said Daley.

"They call him (Miran Fabjan) the Slovenian Rocky. Rocky is a movie. This is reality. Friday you gonna see what will happen. Friday is reality! No film! No Adrian! Rocky, this ain't a film! This is reality and you will find that out! Trust me. Slovenian Rocky in not a good name to have. Rocky always get f*** up.“, Paul Said.

Miran replied: "He said he doesn't mind taking punches, but I saw the video. He's a really good fighter in attacking mode, but when you get punched in the face, you don't like it! I saw it! When you hit me, I do not care!“

Paul added: "He (Miran) could not beat any of the guys I spar with! You're not even better than my sparring partners! You're not even better than my students! How about that?! You're no better than my students! You're gonna look like an amateur Friday!“

Photo of the Day: Badr Hari and His Autobiography

Badr Hari

We've been hearing about this Badr Hari book for a while now, now we get to see what it looks like in print. Hell, we get to see Badr Hari holding the Badr Hari book standing in front of the Badr Hari book poster. It's Badr Hari-ception, actually. If you speak Dutch it seems like this is a must-have for Kickboxing fans. If you don't speak Dutch, then, well, it's probably not a must-own unless you are a die hard Badr Hari fan and just want to stare lovingly at it.
