On Saturday night, one of the greatest rivalries in kickboxing history will come to a close as Badr Hari and Alistair Overeem go to war for the final time. And we’ve got all the details of the Hari Overeem UK match start time.
On Wednesday, combat sports fans were rendered devastated when Conor Benn tested positive for performance-enhancing drugs, resulting in the cancellation of his bout with Chris Eubank Jr. But fans needn’t worry, as we’ve got an epic heavyweight match-up that will more than fill the void.
Everybody loves a trilogy, particularly in the heavyweight division. Grudge matches like Muhammad Ali vs Joe Frazier and Tyson Fury vs Deontay Wilder have given combat sports enthusiasts memories that will last a lifetime. And now it’s the turn of two Dutch icons to finally settle their legendary rivalry.
Back in 2008, Overeem laid his opponent out cold with a brutal left hook. But the following year, Hari evened the score with a stunning left high kick in the K-1 World Grand Prix Semi-Final.
And after a decade of waiting, we’re finally going to find out which of these men will claim bragging rights over the other.
