Kickboxing legend Badr Hari returns to the ring on October 7th against Uku Jurjendal at GLORY 89, the event will take place at the Arena Burgas in Bulgaria and a FREE preliminary undercard will be live streamed on YouTube before the main card.
Hari was originally scheduled to face MMA and Kickboxing veteran James McSweeney in the main event of Glory 88 on September 9, 2023, but Hari decided to forfeit the fight over the 2023 Marrakesh-Safi earthquake that took place in Hari’s homeland of Morocco.
The 38-year-old Dutch-Moroccan fighter is now eager to fight on Saturday night and he will gain motivation from the victims of the tragic earthquake and dedicates this bout to his countrymen who suffered.
Uku Jurjendal comes from Estonia and is a knockout artist with 15 of his 19 wins coming by way of knockout. Saturday night will be his toughest test as he takes on Hari a decorated kickboxing champion with over 100 fights to his name.
