Ricardo is the boss.

16 Jan 2007


Dutch Muay Thai superstar Ricardo van de Boss staged a dramatic last round comeback to secure the WBC interim heavyweight title against Russia's Malex Gadzhiev at the Fairtex Theprasit Stadium in Pattaya.
Trailing by points after sustaining a cut to his head from an elbow blow, van de Boss overpowered Gadzhiev to win a split points decision.
For the first three rounds Gadzhiev controlled the title contest with his elusive skills and elbow counter attacks which trouble the "Big Boss" Dutchman.
" I knew I had to finish strongly and gave everything," said van de Boss.
"I wanted to return to the Netherlands as the champion and my mission in Thailand has been accomplished."
Twenty-four-year-old van de Boss extended his record to 25-18 with 13 Kos.
He said he was ready to meet champion Zhan "Tiger of Jian Xu" of China, who has been sidelined with injury.
Ringside at the championship contest were WBC Muaythai superwelterweight champion Yodsaenklai Fairtex and undefeated WBC middleweight Champion Steve Wakeling, from England.
Wakeling said he was prepared for the biggest fight of his outstanding career when he defends his title against Thailand's Champion Lamsongkram Chuwatana from Ratchadamnoen Stadium in London on February 25.
