VREDE KO1 SHOCKS ROSARIO

17 Jan 2008


The young Dutch Muaythai sensation Ginty Vrede exploded onto the WBC MUAYTHAI titles scene with a stunning first round KO of world champion Shane "Rocky" Del Rosario at the Las Vegas Hilton Casino Hotel.
It was Rocky's first defense of his prestigious WBC heavyweight title after his second round KO win over reigning International Champion Ricardo Van de Bos in Los Angeles last September.

Vrede is trained by Colin Oyama who has produced many European world champion fighters in both Muaythai and MMA.

Rocky Rosario had energized the heavyweight division with his youth and devastating power in both his punches and kicks. But he had little time to get started before Vrede landed a superb head high kick to his head.

Vrede has made a habit of knocking out all comers and boasts a 100% rate. He is now being compared to the K1 superstar Remy Bojansky.
Although Vrede barely raised a sweat before delivering his head high KO he is known for his lightening low kicks delivered with immaculate timing and precision. He also has a reputation for his hard right hand punches and powerful knee strikes.


While Rocky started firm favourite in front of his fans in Las Vegas, Vrede showed no signs of any travel fatigue and went about his ring biz in a thoroughly professional manner - and left his opponent tasting the canvas.
