The highly anticipated Glory Kickboxing debut of Alistair Overeem is finally announced, the kickboxing legend will face rival Badr Hari at Collision 4 in October 2022.

Alistair Overeem vs. Badr Hari

Overeem will meet Hari for the third time of their illustrious careers, with both fighters having a KO win each setting up this trilogy bout perfectly.

Overeem took the first fight via devastating left hook KO in the very 1st round back on New year’s eve 2008.

Hari gained revenge some five months later winning again in the very 1st round, having knocked down Overeem twice in the same round leading to the win as per the ruling.

With close to 13 years passing since the rematch no doubt both men will be looking to close out the trilogy in style, and getting one foot on the ladder to challenge the Champion Rico Verhoeven.

Coincidentally Overeem was due to meet Rico Verhoeven for his Glory Debut back in October 2021.

Unfortunately Overeem was forced to withdraw due to an undisclosed injury.

What better way for Overeem to make his debut for Glory than closing out his trilogy with Badr Hari?.
