From the Hoost Cup website – about the concept of the promotion:
Contribute to society by not only pursuing mere strength, but also producing the second Mr. Perfect who has the mind, technique, and body, and who has the strength to become a role model for society, and the society of kickboxing competitions. The goal is to improve the status of kickboxing and promote kickboxing competitions.
Peter Aerts Highlight
Aerts and Hoost are former colleagues in the K-1 heydays, and remain close friends. And what many people outside of Japan might not know, is the fact that Aerts has twins – both 22 years old: a girl and a boy. Both are active Kickboxers.
At Hoost Cup Kings Kyoto 10 they both fought, hence daddy was making his way to the ring again – twice in one night as he is more than used to.
