GLORY 80: WRZOSEK VS HARI 2 A rematch of one of the most shocking comebacks of 2021 is on deck for March 19th.
It was announced earlier this week that heavyweight kickboxing star Badr Hari had re-signed with GLORY kickboxing on a multi-year deal, and the first bout on his new contract will be against Arek Wrzosek in the main event of GLORY 80 at the Trixxo Arena in Hasselt, Belgium.
“We are proud to have extended Badr Hari and give fans a fight and rematch they have been asking for months,” said GLORY Executive Vice-Chairman Scott Rudmann. “Both Arek Wrzosek and Hari have a lot on the line in this fight and it promises to be a memorable one.”
Hari (106-16, 92 KOs) was well on his way to a win against Wrzosek (14-5, 9 KOs) back at GLORY 78 in The Netherlands last September. He’d dropped Wrzosek three times inside of two rounds, and one more knockdown would’ve sealed it. Well the knockdown happened, it’s just that Wrzosek delivered it.
