From the cold coastline of the Baltic Sea comes Max Vorovksi, a young Estonian prospect who is widely expected to make his mark on the kickboxing scene over the coming years. While he is still a relative unknown he has earned some fans already - and one of them is the legendary Ramon Dekkers. Famed to this day in Thailand and in kickboxing circles all over the world, Dekkers tore through the Muay Thai scene in the 1980s and was the first European to make his mark on the rankings in Thailand itself. In recent years he had lost interest in training, preferring to go off-road biking in the Dutch countryside for days at a time, but when young Vorovski turned up in Dekker’s home town, the veteran legend saw something in him that rekindled his interest in fighting. And so he took Vorovksi under his wing and began coaching him in the finer points of kickboxing and Muay Thai, imparting every bit of knowledge he could from his vast reservoir of experience. Vorovski is in fact Dekkers’ only student, which signifies just how much potential the eight-time champion sees in the young Estonian. Vorovski had a short but successful amateur run before turning professional shortly after his arrival in Holland. He made his professional debut against Robin Van Roosmalen and followed that with a fight against Dzhabar Askerov, losing decisions to both. The results did not put his supporters off though - Van Roosmalen and Askerov are top-tier fighters and not the sort of people one usually debuts against, so for Vorovski to hang in there with them was a sign of bigger things to come. Right now the Estonian is still developing. He has heavy hands and very good boxing but needs more experience of world-class opponents. He is participating in this year’s GLORY World Series 70 kilo grand prix tournament but with the likes of Kraus and Petrosyan in there as well, the odds are long against him winning it. Still, this is fight sport and anything can happen - one punch can throw the bookmaker’s odds out of the window.
