No controversy. No huge communication campaign. The facts will speak for themselves. I have learned the value of hard work, how to compete, how to push my own limits through kickboxing. The GOAT is working harder than ever to kill the Heavyweight division. To my fans : thank you for your unconditional support… 2019 will be ours. #TheyAreNotPrepared
He added that he had learned the “value of hard work, how to compete, how to push my own limits through kickboxing.”
Hari also promised his fans he was working harder “than ever to kill the Heavyweight division.”
Hari continued, “Thank you for your unconditional support… 2019 will be ours.”
The post received thousands of likes and comments, including from celebrities such as Real Madrid star Luka Modric.
“Beast,” Modric commented.
Hari’s objective now is to challenge Dutch Glory Heavyweight Champion Rico Verhoeven.
In August 2018, Hari wrote a post on Instagram, saying “I don’t like retrospectives because there is still much work (KOs) to be done but it seems to be a (funny) list day…. Unreachable Bad Boy. There will be no loophole for my opponents,” citing some of the most challenging games he had won.
Verhoeven responded to Hari’s post, asking why he had cancelled a fight. In reply, Hari commented, “Dear Rico, don’t try to feed a false rumor: there was NEVER any discussion regarding a fight in September. How can you imagine that you would have been the 1st fighter on the poster in such a case ?”
