That’s it, at 44-years-old, Peter Aerts is hanging up his gloves and calling it a spectacular and historic career. He is Mr. K-1, with 3 K-1 Grand Prix wins, 4 runner up spots and a third place finish. That’s some incredible, almost impossible to comprehend accomplishments right there considering the quality of the opponents he was fighting in K-1 between 1994 and 2010. Peter Aerts will finish his career on the typical downslide you see in combat sports athletes, going 2-5-1 since losing to Overeem in the finals of the 2010 K-1.
But still, them’s the breaks. Time defeats all men, and even Peter Aerts has to stop fighting sometime. So now, the only thing worth doing is the obvious: watch the best of his knockouts.
