Summary 2015
In 2015 Baas Sports organized another great edition of the international event "Fighters of the Caribbean". The fighters from Baas Sports were very successful at this event and did not loose one fight. They were also very successful at other events like the boxing event and King's land MMA.
Edwin Baas visited twice this year The Netherlands and we had a lot of special guests visiting us in Curacao.

Richel Hersisia, born in Curaçao (1974) and now living in The Hague The Netherlands, is a world champion pro-boxing of the WBF in the heavyweight division. He holds an excellent pro record of 32 victories (25 he won by Knock-Out) and only 3 losses. The 3 losses are no shame because they were against Audley Harrison (Gold medal winner at 2000 Olympics and world champion pro-boxing) from Great Brittan at Wembley Arena in London, Ray Mercer (former Olympic gold medalist and WBO heavyweight title holder) from the USA and WBA Champion Taras Bidenko from Ukrainian, Soviet Union. Richel fought all over the world, like Sweden, Belgium, Germany, The Netherlands, Spain, United Kingdom, Denmark, Poland and also a couple of times in Curacao.

Rodney Faverus Glunder gave great clinics at Baas Sports Curacao and at the Navy base Parera in January 2015.

Edwin Baas has seen a lot of fights of Rodney and thinks the first time he saw one of his fights was June 1996 at the Mix Fight Night in Haarlem (that night Edwin's wife Palmira also fought and won by 1st round KO). Rodney won that night the Dutch Free Fight Champion Piet Bernzen.
And the last time Baas saw Rodney fight was in Sint Maarten, November 2011, where he defeated an Brittan opponent in a Thaiboxing fight.
Rodney is black belt in Kyokushin karate, black belt in Taekwondo, blue belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, has about 100 fights in the ring/cage and won a lot of championship titles all over the world. He is multiple world champion. In MMA he won world titles of Cage Fighters Championships, RINGS, International Mixfight Association. In Kickboxing he won world titles of the IKBO, ISKA, UMC. Besides European and Dutch titles in Muay Thai, kickboxing, K-1 and MMA he won also the title European Champion Full Contact Karate.

The 5th edition of Fighters of the Caribbean took place May 9, 2015 in the International School of Curacao and was a big success.
The program contained 13 great fights, 4 boxing matches under supervision of CuraBox (Curacao Boxing Association) and 9 Muay Thai Kickboxing fights under supervision of CUMAFE (Curacao Martial Arts Federation). The main event was an official Caribbean title fight for the WMTA (World Muay Thai Association) belt.
Participating teams were; Aruba, Bonaire, Sint Maarten, Suriname, The Netherlands and from Curacao the following teams; Attaf Fighting Factory, Pro-Fit, Kamakura, CSM Fighting Team, Krava Maga Sports and Baas Sports. Baas Sports was very successful again and didn't lose a fight. Video

Kevin Scharbaai (Baas Sports) won Shardimar Ignatia (Attaf Fighting Factory) by TKO in the first round of a Muay Thai kickboxing fight. Video

Grego Scharbaai (Baas Sports Curacao) was prepared for a Muay Thai kickboxing fight vs Jurman Liesdek (Suriname), but a day before the fight was noticed that Liesdek did not came to Curacao. In the same weight there was boxer Rubelly Brederode, son of former boxing champion Ruben La Cruz, who was prepared for a boxing match but his opponent got injured. So Grego switch to play a different game than he was prepared for and it became a great boxing match that ended in a draw. Video

Maurits Hennen (Baas Sports Curacao) won Thuersten Winklaar (Bonaire) on a very convincing way and took revanche. Video

Joshua Karsters (Suriname) won Akeem Lewis (Sint Maarten) and Caribbean WMTA title, but here will be a rematch for this fight because Karsters is not happy with the way he won the fight. Lewis who was undefeated in Muay Thai kickboxing with nine victories dislocated his arm from his shoulder and could not continue the fight. Video
