WILLEMSTAD — The main event of Fighters of the Caribbean, October 21st 2017 at International School of Curacao, is not only a high level one, but also a very special one.
Cedric Bacuna who fought worldwide will fight his farewell fight on his own island, dushi Kòrsou.
Cedric Bacuna is a ‘Yiu di Korsou’ who fought more than 80 Muay Thai and kickboxing fights and won many great fighters, like the world champion Wanlop Sitpholek from Thailand.
