Cyril "Marseille Bad Boy" Abidi (born on February 25, 1976) is a French kickboxer with Morrocan descent. His road to fame started in the year 2000 when he entered K-1 and created a huge upset with a 1st Round KO win over legendary Peter Aerts. The same year at K-1 World GP 2000 in Yokohama he met Peter Aerts again in a rematch and took another TKO win over the famous Dutch fighter. Later that year at the K-1 World Grand Prix 2000 Finals in the Tokyo Dome he met Peter Aerts for the third time but suffered a decision loss this time.

His fight against fellow Frenchman and rival Jérôme Le Banner at K-1 World GP 2005 in Paris which he lost by a decision is considered one of the greatest battles in the history of K-1.

to my way of thinking, he's a bit overrated, although he's a natural worker (he maybe belongs to the 'working-class' of fighters). His defeat against LeBanner was deserved

I'm all the way with you, Pablo! Abidi is a dirty fighter....uses sneaky head butts (like against Aerts) and ellbows. Not the most sportive guy...And yes...the defeat against JLB was more than deserved. He can take a lot of blows though....

Never liked Abidi,, like you say Jeroen he`s no gentleman in the ring, and i actually dont think he`s even a top 50 fighter.

na, he is no top 50 fighter...I would love to see Badr Hari against him...how Badr punishes him and shows him he has no business in K-1.
Like Ray Sefo did, after his fight against Peter.....that was some fight!

i know maybe noone will read this comment of mine as Abidi himself also retired , but i think he was a good fighter indeed, nowadays some of the fighters use dirtier tricks , his fighting style to me resembles of Badr and he was a quick guy and with quick reaction but he lacks the power, his hits not strong enough. i think he is definitely a good fighter, he put up nice shows. Also i think not the fight with Sefo should be mentioned as example for teaching but the one with Ignashov

The best K-1 community online!

The focus is on building a community that offers more to the users than any other K-1 website. The focus is also on that the community should be totally user driven, with the users as main writers of content. Who would for example write a better fight report than a fan who actually was at the fight? Or who could write a more interesting fighter profile than the fan who loves and really knows about a fighter? We believe that this approach will lead to that fansofk1.com has the most interesting K-1 information.
