Curacao Boxing Association
Boxing is one of the oldest forms of physical exercise and since ancient times to present an integral part of the Olympics.
The formerly known term 'amateur boxing' has international turned into "Olympic Boxing ', which is closer to the sporting level where we are. Unlike professional boxing (pro boxing) there is only one world organization for Olympic boxing and that is AIBA (Association Internationale de Boxe Amateur).
The Curaçao Amateur Boxing Association (CABA) was established January 1977 with the aim of promoting the practice of boxing in Curacao.
November 2014 the statutes and name were changed in "Curacao Boxing Association" (CuraBox).
Since the re-establishment in 2009 there are two or three times a year boxing competitions under the auspices of the CABA / CuraBox, with participating of the following Curaçao clubs / teams; Baas Sports, Attaf Fighing Factory, Franciska Fighting Club, Kamakura, Pro-Fit, Curacao Self Made Fighting Team, Red Hawk, No Limit Boxing, Olympic Boxing Club, Jab Jab Korsou, Curacao Fighting School, Thai Flying Dragon, Undisputed Soldiers, Bob Esprit gym, Future Golden Boxing Stars (formerly FC gym), Kibra Hacha, Krav Maga Sports. Teams from Bonaire, Aruba, Sint Maarten, Suriname, Venezuela, and the Netherlands also took part.
CABA/CuraBox boxers also took part in competitions abroad, such as; Italy (World Championships), Dominican Republic (Continental Championships), Puerto Rico (CAC Games), The Netherlands (Dutch Championships), Ecuador (Olympic qualifiers), Saba, Sint Maarten and many times in Aruba.

At the World Championship Boxing AIBA in Milan Italia September 1-13 2009 554 boxers from 144 countries participated. The international boxing world didn't know The Netherlands Antilles, but Benjey Zimmerman changed that. In the Super Heavyweight division (+91 kg) he made a great debut. In his first boxing match ever he won with 11-4.

November 21 2009 Edmond Lodowica joined an “updating seminar” for referees in Sto. Domingo, organized by the American Boxing Confederation (from AIBA). 21 countries took part like; Bahamas, Bermuda, Brazil, Costa Rica, Cuba, Curacao, Ecuador, United States, Jamaica, Mexico, Panama, Venezuela, Virgin Islands, Dominica, Brazil, Saint Marteen, Colombia, Barbados, Trinidad & Tobago, Puerto Rico and Dominican Republic.

November 2017 AIBA 3 star referee James Beckles from Trinidad & Tobago gave a 6-days during course for referees and judges of the Curacao Boxing Association (CuraBox). 3 stars is the highest level of the international boxing association AIBA and Mr. Beckles is without a doubt the best in the Caribbean if it comes to refereeing, judging and sharing his knowledge and experience.
Edwin Baas, president of the Curacao Boxing Association, is very satisfied. Next to the participants that graduated, he’s also grateful towards the boxers that did a great job during the bouts for the practical exams. Joey Gogulski, Grego Scharbaai, Ginuwine Mercelina, Ray Maharaj, Curlyson Winklaar, Jack Denzel Mc Aully, Chris Elliott and Davino de Palm.

This course was made possible by financial support of FDOK (Federashon Deporte i Olímpiko Korsou).


WILLEMSTAD – Despues di un entrenamentu di Baas Sports juli 2010, un pida di historia di Bòkseo di Kòrsou, a keda tresé. Sr. Erwin Berkemeyer a bini ku un pòtrèt kaminda e tabata den kompania di entre otro Sr. Godfried Balyn i Khaosai Galaxy di Tailandia. Galaxy no ta un nòmber deskonosí i tabata un gran kampion di Bòkseo i el a bòks aki na Kòrsou. Kaosai Galaxy a kuminsá su karera komo kickboxer i despues a pasa pa Bòkseo na edat di 21 aña.

Ku e impreshonante rekòrt aki Galaxy na 1999 a drenta e konosido “The Boxing Hall of Fame” na Canastota, Merka. Solamente na un okashon el a bringa pafó di Asia. E honor aki a toka Kòrsou dia 1 di novèmber 1986, ora ku Galaxy den di sinku rònt a sabi di gana pa nòkout di Israel Contreras di Venezuela.

Na afloop van een training van Baas Sports kwam een stuk Curaçaose boksgeschiedenis naar boven. Dhr. Berkemeier kwam met een foto waar hij op stond in gezelschap van o.a. Godried Balyn en Khaosai Galaxy, die 7 jaar achtereenvolgens wereldkampioen boksen was. Zoals zoveel Thaise vechters begon Khaosai Galaxy zijn carrière als kickbokser waarna hij overstapte naar het regulaire boksen op de leeftijd van 21. Galaxy's enige verlies kwam in zijn 6e partij wanneer hij een puntennederlaag opliep tegenover Sakda Saksuree tijdens zijn uitdaging voor de Thaise bantamgewicht titel, maar dit verlies werd later goed gemaakt met een knock-out overwinning en Galaxy maakte gestaag vorderingen en verbeterde onderwijl zijn reputatie. Een snel overzicht van Galaxy's carrière geeft ons een record van 49-1 (43 KO), met 19 succesvolle titelverdedigingen in een 7-jarige regeerperiode (1984-1991), waarna hij terugtrad als de ongeslagen WBA kampioen. Deze aantallen bleken divisie records te zijn en Galaxy werd voor deze prestaties beloond met een inductie in het beroemde 'The Boxing Hall off Fame' in Canastota, Amerika in 1999. Slechts 1x bokste Galaxy buiten Azië. Deze eer trof Curaçao. Op 1 november 1986 kon men in Willemstad Curaçao deze wereldkampioen 'live' aanschouwen, toen Galaxy door knock out in de vijfde ronde won van de tot dan toe ongeslagen Israel Contreras. Zijn tegenstanders waren niet de eerste de beste en bokssterren zoals; Israel Contreras, David Grimman, Elly Pical, Yong Hang Kim, en Rafael Orono welke allemaal al wereldkampioen waren of dit later alsnog werden, prijkten aan zijn slachtofferriem. Hij versloeg ook een zeer goede Armando Castro in zijn laatste partij, waarna de nationale volksheld met pensioen ging.
Happy holidays and best wishes
