Ramon Dekker

Even if you can speak no other words of the Thai language, most European and American visitors to Thailand will quickly become familiar with the Thai word “farang” (often mispronounced even by Thais) as “falang” –“farang” with a slightly trilled ‘r’ is the correct pronunciation.

It’s basically used to describe Caucasians.

It is not a racist thing.

Ramon Dekkers is probably the most respected “farang” Thai boxer of all times.

Dekkers had the guts to go to Thailand and kick butt directly at the famous Lumpinee stadium.

He kicked butt but also got his butt kicked.

But no matter what, he stood up there and showed that the Dutch fighters are a menace.

He is probably the most respected foreigner in Thailand – fighting like the Thais.

He fought them all – he fought them on their rules, in their land, in their rings – and he beat them.

He was beaten sometimes himself – mostly on points – but he never turned down a fight.

The Thai fighters have always and will always respect Ramon Dekkers for one thing: he never turned down a challenge.

Dekkers in turn has always respected the Thai fighters.

All these guys are the true champions of the sport.

Most professional fighters often avoid some fights in order not to ruin their perfect record.

That does not necessarily mean that they are afraid of their opponent; sometimes they know that they are not ready to fight a dangerous opponent because of an injury, or they want to study him more.

Some even wait for the opponent to pass his prime and fight him after he has had his share of injuries and loses.

Ramon was not one of these fighters.

If there were a world championship as far as courage and heart are concerned, Ramon Dekkers would be a true champion.

Here is a quote from Ramon Dekker !!

As a professional Thai boxer I always asked much of my body. It was a great effort to get in top shape for every match I fought.

Training hard and much and always be aware of what I was eating where the key elements in this.

Especially showing up at the fight at the right weight was a great achievement. How do you loose weight without loosing strength? And how do you gain weight without getting slow and fat.

Nowadays I use the Wellness products to stay in shape. I advise you to do the same and you’ll be pleased about the results!

    What a pity Ramon dekkers din fight during the era when K-1 started..
    if not, most probably he can be another Muay thai fighter to win the title…
    wonder how it will be if Ramon vs buakaw…both are my favourite fighters!

    Go to Holland and you will be able to fight his Muay Thai students …

    Good luck :)

  22. Ed Teune Says:

    Farang can be properly pronounced with EITHER an r or an l. They are interchangeable in Thai, hence the difficulty in Engrish of pronouncing r’s and l’s properry.

    But yes, Dekkers is awesome!

  23. Jobett Says:

    JOE E.SMALL SAYS

    RAMON DECKER WAS ONE OF THE ALL TIME BEST MUAY THAI FIGHTERS OUT SIDE OF THAI LAND.

    HIS STYLE COULD HAVE BEEN A BIT MORE TECHNICAL BUT HIS FEROSITY ,SPEED AND STAMANIA MADE DECKER A FORCE TO DEAL WITH..

    SHAMFULLY IN THE U.S.A. DECKER IN NOT KNOWN BY THE MASSES !!.

    DECKER HAD A NATURALLY HIGH VOMAX LIKE ALL PRO FIGHTERS THIS LINKED WITH HIS EXPLOSIVENESS AND DETERMINATION TO WIN WERE HIS BASIS FOR SUCCESSS . CORR HEMMERS HIS STEP DAD IS A GOOD TRAINER ..

    IN ALL RAMON DECKER IS ONE OF MY FAVORITS
