K-1 stripped Badr Hari of his Heavyweight Title due to his actions at the K-1 World Grand Prix. In the final, Hari stomped on the head of a downed Remy Bonjasky, leading to a disqualification of the Moroccan “Bad Boy.”
Sadaharu Tanikawa, FEG President, indicated earlier in the week that K-1 could possibly punish Hari. Japanese news papers Sports Nippon and Nikkan Sports found out about the news of the decision to strip Hari of his title late Saturday night.
K-1 Rules Director Nobuaki Kakuda and Tanikawa also suspended the now former Heavyweight champion indefinitely. More disciplinary action may be handed down.
