Kyoskushin karate black belt Ramon Gonzales is a three-time Filipino National Champion in the full-contact discipline. Regarded as one of the Philippines’ best-ever karatekas, he has also travelled all across Asia to compete in tournaments, including the prestigious Kyokushin World Championships.
With more than a decade of combat sports experience, Gonzales made a successful professional cage debut in 2009, but decided to take a step back and compete at the amateur level instead, running up an impressive 8-0 record.
He eventually made his way back to the professional ranks in ONE Championship, and proudly represents the Philippines while showcasing the effectiveness of Kyokushin karate to the world. However, he made a huge statement in September 2017, when he submitted a rising Chinese talent to showcase his ever-improving ground game.
