In Memory of Ramon “The Diamond” Dekkers

The world of Muay Thai lost one of its legends yesterday with the passing of Ramon Dekkers.  During his long career, Dekkers amassed an impressive record of 186-33-2.  He was the first foreign fighter to compete successfully in Thailand, and he helped spread the sport of Muay Thai in his home country of Holland.  In 1992 he became the first ever foreign born fighter to earn the Thailand Fighter of the Year Award.  He was a true legend of the sport, and his accomplishments will not soon be forgotten.

Spend of few moments checking out some of Dekkers’ highlights in the below video.
