There is a chance that Badr Hari will represent the Netherlands this year at the Olympic Games in Tokyo. His trainer Mike Passenier confirms to the NOS after reporting in De Telegraaf that the Dutch Boxing Association (NBB) is talking to the kickboxer. The boxing association wanted to “confirm nor deny” this morning’s rumor. The federation is currently “broader orientating” whether there is sufficient potential among kickboxers for Olympic participation, said chairman Boris van der Vorst in the NOS Radio 1 Journal. “There are many conversations in that context.” According to Hari’s trainer, the request came as a surprise. “We must first find out if it fits into his career and whether kickboxing organization Glory is happy with it.” Moreover, he points out that Hari still has to recover from an ankle injury, which he sustained in the fight for the world title in the heavyweight against Rico Verhoeven. Would be something if guys like Badr ,Holzken and Rico go to the Olympics. There have been talks in the past about Mousasi competing at the Olympics (2012 I believe).
