Muay Thai legend Ramon Dekkers passes away at just 43

27 Feb Posted by in News | 1 comment

Some tragic news has hit the Muay Thai and kickboxing world today, Ramon Dekkers has sadly passed away. This man was an idol and inspiration to many and those who have visited my site often, will know that he was my all time favourite fighter.

The write up below is taken from Liverkick.

“Reports are coming out of his home town of Breda today that Dekkers was riding his bike when he collapsed in a tunnel after feeling light-headed. A few bystanders attempted to assist him before emergency services arrived and attempted to revive him to no avail.

Dekkers is a former 8-time world champion and one of the first Dutch Kickboxers to really make an impact in Thailand. He was instrumental in helping the sport of Kickboxing to evolve to what it is today and will always be remembered for his accomplishments in and out of the ring.”

My upmost condolences go out to his family and friends, RIP Ramon “The Diamond” Dekkers.
