I’m shocked and saddened to write that one of the best kick-boxers to ever live has passed away. Ramon Dekkers at the age of 43 appears to have died in a motorcycle accident. Details are not flushed out yet, however it is a huge loss to the combat sports community as a whole. His style of thai boxing was the most thrilling the world had ever seen during his peak years.
I’m being honest when I say that this guy is who got me into kickboxing. I studied thai boxing in Boston years ago and watched Ramon Dekker highlights constantly, wishing I could be as fast an fierce as he was.
Terrible news. R.I.P. Ramon Dekkers.
