Early life[ edit ] Badr Hari began practicing kickboxing at the age of seven, under the guidance of former World Champion Mousid Akamrane. It was the first time his parents attended one of his fights so he asked to address the Dutch audience. Hari couldn't be understood as the audience proceeded to boo him, after which Hari was quoted saying "I thought to myself, I have never witnessed such ungratefulness".
From then on Hari has represented Morocco and stopped working with Thom Harinck. Mike Passenier became his new coach. His father sent him to the kickboxing gym to learn how to defend himself from bullies in the neighborhood. People quickly realized he was a natural talent and from the age of 11 he was fighting regularly as a junior. In his teenage years he worked with the legendary trainer Thom Harinck at Chakuriki Gym and it was at this time he started to become well-known on the Amsterdam scene.
A year later he was fighting in front of an audience of thousands at the Amsterdam Arena, the biggest soccer stadium in the Netherlands. His opponent was Alexey Ignashov, at that time probably the best heavyweight in the world. Badr took the fight on short notice and lost, but won respect from the crowd and from Ignashov for his display of heart.

Karaev hurt Badr with a straight right that left Hari slouching over in the corner, then Karaev delivered a kick to Hari's face: Hari was counted out by the referee but immediately he and his corner protested, claiming the kick was a foul.
When the referee did not respond, Hari and his corner men caused a commotion and refused to leave the ring until they were escorted out by K-1 officials. Hari left in anger and trashed his changing room. Six months later, Hari would get a rematch. He won the fight by unanimous decision. Karaev and Hari's matchup was one of two bouts to qualify for the first K-1 heavyweight title match, scheduled on 28 April in Hawaii. Hari was knocked down in the second round and was just able to make it back to his feet when Karaev intended to finish the fight with a swinging punch which Hari ducked, and landed a right cross to score a KO.
Hari won the fight in 56 seconds with a kick to the chin. With the knockout Hari became the first ever K-1 Heavyweight champion. After the bout, Hari and Graham seemed to bury the hatchet, hugging each other, although the two started taunting each other again at the post-fight press conference.

On a political level, the Frankish warlords abandoned tribalism and founded a number of kingdoms, however, the population make-up of the Frankish Empire, or even early Frankish kingdoms such as Neustria and Austrasia, was not dominated by Franks. Though the Frankish leaders controlled most of Western Europe, the Franks themselves were confined to the Northwestern part of the Empire, the current Dutch-French language border has remained virtually identical ever since, and could be seen as marking the furthest pale of gallicization among the Franks.
The medieval cities of the Low Countries, which experienced major growth during the 11th and 12th century, were instrumental in breaking down the already relatively loose local form of feudalism, as they became increasingly powerful, they used their economical strength to influence the politics of their nobility. While the cities were of political importance, they also formed catalysts for medieval Dutch culture.
