Ramon Dekkers vs. Cherry S. Wanich

     

 
The Thais still wanted to have their revenge so they put their new Thai champion up to fight Ramon. Οn 27-05-1990 he fought Cherry S. Wanich in Holland. This Thai he beat on K.O. in round 1. Ramon had seen a fight of boxing champion Sugar Ray Leonard a couple of weeks before the fight with Cherry and had seen a nice boxing combination of Sugar Ray’s. The combination was really fast and Ramon wanted to try it on Cherry. It worked out very well. The Thai champion was knocked out badly. He couldn’t even stand up by himself.
 

 
Just as Ramon was developing that attitude of kicking like a Thai, he introduced the Thais to the punches of western boxing with that devastating knockout over Cherry. Dekkers had done it again – done it his way – done it with that left hook at the tail end of a punishing combination borrowed from one legend and used by the legend himself. And the hometown crowd roared its appreciation. People were expecting him to be a kicker but then he proved once again he was very much a puncher as well. The Thais had not seen these kinds of punches before. They were used to the knees. They were used to the elbows. They were used to the high kicks. But it was with that ice cold blooded efficiency that he set up those punches that he had been so well schooled in under the tutelage of Cor Hemmers. And he devastated the Thai champion with that final hook uppercut. Dekkers was now becoming a legend around the world and the Thais wanted him beaten badly. As he went to pay his respects to the fallen champion, Dekkers was as always the consummate sportsman. He had nothing personal against the Thais, but the country of Thailand wanted a bit of payback.
