Mike Kim Claims Badr Hari Will Still Compete In The K1 Tournament

“The new owner of K1, Mike Kim, claims that Badr Hari, will still be part of the Final 16. Personally, I believe that Mike Kim very well knows that Hari’s kickboxing career is the least of his worries right now. I highly doubt Badr Hari will be competing in the K1 tournament. I believe Kim is only saying this, because he doesn’t want to squash any momentum K1 has going for them in staging this legendary tournament.

Still, it’s interesting to note that it appears that Badr still has Kim and K1′s support – at least for now.”
