Boxing legend Ibi Zimmerman
02-04-2017

I was honored to meet Mr. Hubert "Ibi" Zimmerman from Boca Sami.
Hubert "Ibi" Zimmerman, born in Curacao 1951, made his professional debut in 1974 and won many titles like the Curacao title, the Kingdom title, the Inter-Americana title and in 1988 in US Virgin Islands the IBF Inter-Continental light heavyweight title after beating Tomas Ruiz Polo. As one of the first international professional boxing champions from Curacao, he has the best record with more than 30 victories and only 5 losses.
Ibi's last two bouts were against two well-known major champions from Holland. In 1981 Ibi won European Champion Pedro van Raamsdonk by Knock-Out. In 1992 he lost during his last bout against World Champion "Fast Eddy" Smulders. This was no shame, because the experienced Smulders was at that time 12 years younger and undefeated.
The Zimmerman family from Boca San Michiel (Boca Sami) is known as a boxing family. Ibi’s younger brothers Chucu Zimmerman and Marcelo "Cheo" Zimmerman also won international pro-boxing titles.

Another special guest @ Baas Sports Curacao. My mattie Khalid Redouani, who trained at Baas Haarlem before I went to Curacao in August 2001. Khalid was very successful in competitions and won a lot of Thai boxing fights. Khalid still trains at Gym Haarlem under supervision of Riduan El Assrouti.

March 2017 we had a group of top fighters and trainers from Amsterdam at Baas Sports Curacao.
The group consisted of Roel Mannaart, Sharon Mannaart, Rachel Adamus and Jamal Baali.
Roel and Sharon Mannaart are son and daughter of the well-known former world champion Andre Mannaart from Mejiro gym Amsterdam. Both, Roel and Sharon, are very successful in Thai-kickboxing competitions. A-class fighter and trainer Roel Mannaart just came from the USA where he was invited to train with former UFC heavyweight champion Junior dos Santos.
Rachel Adamus from Vos Gym Amsterdam is also an A-class fighter and even World Champion Muay Thai.
Jamal Baali is a also great Personal trainer.
March 6th Roel Mannaart gave a special guest training in the typical Mejiro gym style at Baas Sports.


Wheelchair Boxing

One of the plans for the new year is to bring boxing to a higher level and more accessible to more people.
People with disabilities, like the ones who use wheelchairs, have the same needs as everyone else. They need social interaction, physical activity, and a healthy sense of self-worth. The sport of boxing can help satisfy those needs. Under the right supervision they can get the exercise their bodies require and the confidence they need to succeed in different aspects of life.
We don’t focus on the disabilities, we focus on the abilities because there is so much they CAN do.



Fight gear

The list below shows which items are needed to practice combat sports like boxing, Muay Thai kickboxing and MMA (Mixed Martial Arts) in the right way, proper and safe. These items are available at Baas Sports.

Videos & Photos

We notice more and more videos of our classes published on the internet, like social media. This while we from Baas Sports didn’t even know and did not approve these recordings and publications.

For that reason from now on, it is not allowed to make video recordings at our classes. We from Baas Sports will make recordings ourselves and we will respect the privacy of everyone. If you train at Baas Sports and you don’t like it to be published in a photo or video, just let us know.

Making photos is only possible with permission of Baas Sports and only on the right moments, moments that Baas Sports decides.

The use of telephone, like calling, texting, etc. is prohibited, during classes. You come to train and not something else. Phones have to be turned off or on silent.


In the video below you find 84 minutes of footage recorded during several classes of Baas Sports Curacao.
