Ramon Dekkers vs. Joe Prestia

Ramon won over Frenchman Joe Prestia in 1992. He won on points. Joe Prestia was one of the most popular French fighters in his day. He was a true warrior in the ring, going all out every time. He has long been retired and has made some appearances in both movies and television shows including the film Irreversible (2002) with Monica Bellucci and Vincent Cassel.

The fight was organized during the April 9th, 1992 gala in Paris. Ramon is the deserved winner of the fight. He maintained control of his opponent and used his superior power and timing to win the fight. Prestia was certainly not an inferior fighter. On the contrary, in my opinion he lost the fight in the third round when he couldn't deal with the middle kicks. This weakened his strongest assets, namely his punches. Ramon went on to take advantage of this and was never in any real danger. A beautiful fight.

The rematch between Ramon Dekkers and Joe Prestia took place on June 20,1992.
