Just remember Ray Sefo, who had very good hands for K1 in this boxing match:
Hunt, Mighty Mo and Cro Cop also relied on their Boxing and didn't do well in Boxing

Saki has the best hands in K1 ^^
I think it's a safe bet that it's between Saki and Spong. I think if they fought under boxing rules, Spong would win.
@ Dono.... i see better combination work with Saki....Spong at HW is all about the power shots....Saki is a lot faster
spong at 80 kilo now thats a different story...his weapons are his knees and elbows
...imo both make a epic fight

But he definitely would bring more attention back to the HW div. if he was actually good.
Every one loves to watch a self destructive person implode.
LOL. I can just imagine it now. Hari's getting out boxed and out of nowhere just flying knees a guy, throws him down, and stomps his face.
"I look at guys like [Tomasz] Adamek and [Chris] Arreola and if they are considered the top of the division, I kinda laugh at that. I think I am ready for those guys right now. Or Monte Barrett, who just beat David Tua. ... I just want to f**k people up."
This is a cute quote, but that's about it. Adamek is a heavyweight contender, former cruiserweight champion, and former top light heavyweight and titleholder there. Arreola has become one of the more popular fighters in the division, and is seemingly putting his days of being, well, kind of a slob behind him.
Hari, at 6'6", is a big guy who could potentially make the transition. At 26, he's young enough to do so, and he's already got some experience. He also, despite the headline-grabber quote above, doesn't seem as delusional as you might think. He knows it would be an adjustment and that he'd have to learn, and he's not looking to call out the Klitschkos yet. I just think he's got the opinion that a lot of people do: Beyond the Klitschkos, the division just isn't good.
But I do quibble with one thing he seems to insinuate, that crowds aren't coming out for heavyweight boxing. That's not true. In America, the division is all but dead. But in Germany, the Klitschkos sell out stadiums and plenty of other guys can bring in solid crowds, too. David Haye is a big draw in the UK. Tomasz Adamek sells huge in Poland (and sells well in New Jersey, too).
If Hari actually makes the move to boxing -- take it with a punch of salt -- he'll start lower than Adamek or Arreola or even Barrett. I do think he has the physical tools to be a success, if he really dedicates himself to the boxing game and takes his time. He's also got a personality that is easy to sell -- he's a "bad boy," and he could make a name for himself in the media before he ever does so in the ring. As he is right now, I don't think he'd be technically good enough to beat anyone of any substance in boxing's heavyweight division, and certainly wouldn't beat Adamek or Arreola. He's just not a good enough pure boxer yet. That's just my opinion.

He got knocked down by a Semmy Schilt death jab. No shame in that.
Now Image a jab thrown by Vitali,Wlad.
Hari would be KOed first round by a jab
I like hari A LOT, but this dudes jaw ant cut for boxing. He needs to stick to Kickboxing or go to MMA.

Agreed. They will feed him a few cans so he can win, but when it comes time to fight a top 20 HW he will not last. I would LOL if he gets into trouble in the ring boxing and then knees the guy. I could see him getting frustrated in there and doing something like that. Hari always wants to kill his opponent no matter what.CanadianAssault wrote:Hari will beat some cans thats it.
