Biography and career
Vrede won the WBC Muaythai heavyweight World title by beating the previously unbeaten Shane del Rosario in Las Vegas on January 12, 2008 by KO in the first round. Two weeks later, despite being medically tested before his fight in Las Vegas, Vrede died aged 22 from cardiac arrest during a training session in Amsterdam. He was trained by Harry Berepoot who has produced several other World champion fighters in both Muay Thai and Mixed Martial Arts.
Vrede made a habit of knocking out all comers and boasted a high rate, which led to him being compared with K-1 superstar Remy Bonjasky. He was known for his lightning low kicks which he delivered with power, timing and precision. He also had a reputation for hard righthand pin-point punches and powerful knee strikes.
Ginty was on an impromptu training session in the Pancration Sports Centre in Amsterdam when at some point he stated that he did not feel very well, and collapsed moments later. CPR administered for nearly half an hour could not save him. He died on his way to the hospital.
