“The Immortal” Regian Eersel is a 24 year old Dutch kickboxer & Muay Thai fighter, born in Suriname & is the current Lion Fight super-middleweight world champion. At the age of four, Eersel immigrated to Amsterdam’s most notorious “ghetto”, Bijlmer (home to former GLORY Kickboxing 95kg SLAM champion, Tyrone Spong), a suburb once described as being: a “national disaster area” by Dutch police.
Eersel who, fights out of, Sityodtong Gym, travels down memory lane, recounting his journey from childhood to adulthood as he tours through the streets of Bijlmer with, K1ANOOP. Eersel opens-up on how he was forged into becoming a Dutch kickboxing prodigy & one of the most feared fighters since the emergence of Badr Hari – with whom comparisons are easily made from Regian’s explosive and ferocious style of technical violence.
Regian Ersel made his One Championship debut on April 20, 2018 with an unanimous decision victory against New Zealand’s Brad Riddell, having agreed a multiple fight deal (kickboxing and potentially MMA) with the Southeast Asian promotion which, is owned by renown entrepreneur, Chatri Sityodtong.
