Ode to kick boxer The Diamond

Edwin Wiekens

Tribute

Zenk One created a tribute to kickboxing legend Ramon Dekkers. The design features boxing gloves, a Thai floral wreath and a diamond, which is a reference to his nickname ’The Diamond’.

Thaiboxer of the year

Dekkers was an eight time Muay Thai world champion and the first foreigner to be given the title of ‘Thaiboxer of the Year’. This made Dekkers a hero in Thailand.

In 2013 Dekkers died unexpectedly during training. Local Tuinzigt inhabitants Ivonne Peeters and Ciska Jansen made it their mission to make this mural happen.
