WILLEMSTAD - The brothers Barry and Keanu Irausquin from Curaçao will both fight during the weekend of October 1 and 2 during Cage Warriors in Eindhoven and Levels Fight League in Amsterdam.
Keanu, who lives on the island, will be the first to enter the MMA cage. This will also be Irausquin's MMA debut. His opponent Oualid has been in the cage before.
Keanu trains at IMMARTIAL-Athlete Center in Willemstad and, according to trainer Gideon Jonker, he is preparing for the matches every day. “Especially those who show good preparation will be rewarded this year with great competitions abroad, but also here in Curaçao,” said Jonker.
Brother Barry made his debut at an MMA World Championship earlier this year in Amsterdam where he represented Curaçao.
