Remy Bonjasky (January 10, 1976) is a Muay Thai fighter from the Netherlands famous for his winning of the K-1 fighting championship in Japan.

Biography

Bonjasky was born in Suriname, and moved to the Netherlands when he was 5 years old.

Bonjasky was involved in soccer during his teens and when he accidentally broke his leg when he was 16 he chose to stop playing. He began Muay Thai at the age of 18 when a friend brought him to a Muay Thai gym (Mejiro Gym) to "see who is the best." Bonjasky decided to stay and train and he fell in love with Muay Thai.

Bonjasky had his first fight later than most, fighting at the age of 19 against an established Dutch MMA fighter named Valentijn Overeem. Bonjasky won by TKO. From this moment he decided to quit his job as a network operator and focus on training full time.

Not long had passed until Bonjasky was given his first chance to fight in K-1, a popular Japanese fighting corporation with the best fighters from around the world. Bonjasky met established K-1 fighter Ray Sefo and despite the odds this K-1 rookie managed to win by TKO.

The story is short from here as Bonjasky eventually became better and made his mark as an elite K-1 fighter. Since then Bonjasky has become the 2003 and with controversy the 2004 K-1 World Grand Prix champion. He defended his title in November, 2005 at the K-1 finals in Tokyo, Japan in front of a 70 000 person crowd in the Tokyo Dome, but was bested by fellow Dutchman Semmy Schilt.
