Every day Ramon and Cor would talk about kickboxing. 

 
Ramon Dekkers was a real talent and his younger brothers Nick and Carlo couldn't spar with him, because he was to good. Ramon fought a lot of matches in Holland and won every fight with a knockout. His first international fight was in France. After that the had the first satellite event in 1990 from Amsterdam, which was also showed in Thailand.
