    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).

    They're going to introduce kickboxing to the Olympics? Or they mean they're going to boxing

    Badr has way too much worth for the Olympics. That stuff is for amateurs.

    Dude, I can’t think of an athlete who wouldn’t want a chance to compete for an Olympic medal. With the right pr team you can make a lot of money off the back of Olympic success.

    I'm not sure how good Dutch heavyweight boxing is, but even it it were poor wouldn't Badr need to qualify for the Olympics by doing well in some international tournament like say the European championship? He would stand no chance.

    Badr is literally the opposite of an Olympian.

    there’s a bigger chance of badr getting out pointed 999-0 in his first boxing match, then exploding and kneeing the guy unconscious, then have his mafia contacts whack him outside the Olympic villa, than him actually medaling

    Rico was the last man standing for the 2nd time, that's all we need to know. It doesn't really matter how good a first round or two you have if you're going to physically give up shortly after.

    His body gave up twice, and there's no evidence of those injuries anyway.

    Badr is a known quitter, when he's not faking an injury he kicks people while they're down because he's losing.

    Or get KTFOed.
    Plenty of top level ammy boxers did had not less expensive tutelage than highest level pros.
    Because sorry, on ammy boxing people might shit as far as they want to do.
    Without interest, how high is concurrence even to get in National team's candidate list in plenty of countries for qualifiers.
    And how "weak" top level ammy blows are too & what ammount of $ and time was invested in them.
    -
    Plenty of notable and famous pro boxers were Olympic amateurs or successful amateurs, these notable top pro boxers didn't appeared from Mars in dreams.
    Definitely they didn't had skills and beating power when competed under amateur rules.<45>

    I can post plenty of former ammy boxers, that were succesful, notable pros.
    They didn't get their boxing skills and power only after they get into pro game.

    There are examples that I can remember easily:
    a few really notable boxers that competed in amateur Olympics:
    Ali
    George Foreman
    Joe Fraizer
    Evander Holyfield
    Lennox Levis
    Antony Joshua
    Usyk
    Povetkin
    W.Klitschko

    Most likely not known but really one from few most successful amateur boxers that world ever had.

    https://boxrec.com/en/proboxer/34798
    3 Olympic Gold medals + boxed in pros despite from socialism era Hungary.
    One from most talented boxers world ever had.
