Ramon Dekkers: vs Rayen Simson

     

Ramon, Simson and Don Clovis

 
After his first fight with Hassan Kassrioui, came the fight against Rayen Simson, who became another big rising star in Muay Thai. The fight with Rayen Simson was for Ramon his second fight for the WPKL. He fought in Roosendaal, which is not so far from his hometown Breda.
 
 
The fight was on 23 March 1997. It was in that fight that both fighters went to the canvas at the same time; both fighters used the same punch. It’s very amazing. I only saw it once before in a boxing match. Very unique that two professional, well-trained athletes hit each other at the same time on each other’s chin and then went down at the same time. Simson made a left hook; Ramon made a left hook and both went down. It’s a classical incident. You do not see something that like in a decade.
 

 
Ramon got hit on his eye in that fight and almost couldn’t see – so after the second round he gave up the fight. It was very frightening to Ramon – he thought he might even be blind. He went to the hospital and they said it was “something with the eye.” They didn’t know what it was. But anyway soon Ramon recovered.

Simson made his name through Ramon and the fight was very well matched. And it was enjoyable to see that Dekkers was still there after his terrible injuries. Of course, not the old Dekkers because anyone could notice his different fighting style and that he did not kick as much anymore.
