man who needs no introduction, winning the
K1 Grand Prix several times. And the Dutch
fans could watch him at the 2H2H show in 2001.
A Dutch television program was following him
and Peter Aerts trough the long way to K1.
A very humble and nice guy, but in the ring
he changes his name into Mr. Perfect.
: Could you please tell something about you
latest tournament (K1Grand Prix)?
Hoost : Yes, that was in Tokyo
Dome. Well my fight against Leko is well known.
I kicked his elbow to pieces but also my own
foot. I was broken.
: Was Lekos elbow broken?
Hoost : Yes, I just spoke to him
at the show and he told me it was broken.
: So he went in to the next fight with a broken
Hoost : Of course, I have had a
injury at my arm I also would continue to
fight. The problem for me is just that I could
not walk anymore, so no fighting either.
: Whats in the future for you Ernesto?
Any upcoming matches?
Hoost : Well I am busy with talking
to people and negotiating. But I hope I can
fight next month, thats something I
really want. And maybe in May, in Paris. And
of course I expect I can fight this year again
in the K1 Grand Prix.
: Any idea who is your next opponent?
Hoost : Yeah well, people are talking
again about Stefan Leko. For me it is not
important who is I am going to fight.
: Is this a tournament or a single match?
Hoost : No its a single match.
I am still recovering and I think I should
take it easy.
: What do you think about the 2H2H show tonight?
Hoost : Great fun as always! Yes
I really like it.
: Did you want to be on the card?
Hoost : Yes for sure. But on the
other side, I am not ready yet, I am still
in my preparation. It is cool to fight in
my home country but I want to do it 100%.
: From what fight do you expect the most?
Hoost : For me the best fight is
Simson Vs Balrak for sure. Two guys who really
deserve the title and I look forward to it.
SFUK Holland : And if it goes to the mixed fights?
Hoost : Well I am a K1 fighter
you know, I am not that deep into MMA. But
the Schrijber Vs Yvel match should be a good
fight. Not only for me, but I think for the
: Any words for the fans?
Hoost : I will fight again for
100% this year and of course I will do everything
to qualify for the Grand Prix this year.
: You are not starting thinking about quitting
Hoost : Well I am not getting any
younger of course. But as long as I feel healthy
and good. And when I still can move along
with the boys and training is still going
well. I think I should be fine!
: Thanks a lot Ernesto!
Hoost : My pleasure!
