A massive heavyweight showdown will take place this Saturday night, and now is the time to bet on Badr Hari vs. Rico Verhoeven with Unibet!
A true legend in kickboxing will return to the ring this weekend in Oberhausen, Germany. Badr Hari will make UK gambling news when he fights for the first time since August of 2015, and is stepping up to take on one of the most dangerous opponents he has ever faced in Rico Verhoeven.
As the Glory heavyweight champion, Verhoeven has established himself as the scariest kickboxer alive. He has won 11 of his past 12 fights, with notable victories over Gokhan Saki, Daniel Ghita, and Anderson Silva. At 27 years of age, Verhoeven already has 60 professional fights, but is entering this fight with Hari the much less experienced man.
This is truly a fight between two of the best heavyweight kickboxers of all time, and the winner will establish themselves as one of the most dangerous men alive. On paper it should be extremely competitive, but are you planning to bet on Badr Hari vs. Rico Verhoeven? Let’s take a look at the betting lines set by Unibet.
Badr Hari vs. Rico Verhoeven betting odds
Of these two fighters, Verhoeven has been the much busier man. He has fought three times since Hari’s last bout, all of which were to defend his title. The Dutchman is also the younger fighter by four years. For these reasons, most online sportsbooks in the UK including Unibet list Verhoeven as the betting favorite with odds of 1.57.
As we mentioned before, Badr Hari is a true legend in kickboxing. He has faced most of the biggest names in the sport, and were it not for his history of unsportsmanlike conduct and legal troubles outside the ring, he would likely go down as one of the best ever. Hari has looked solid as of late and is currently on a five-fight win streak. Still, he is the kickboxing underdog in this one with odds of 2.3.
