Fighter Bio

Peter "The Dutch Lumberjack" Aerts is a Dutch professional kickboxer and K-1 superstar. He is a three time K-1 World Grand Prix and Muay Thai World Champion. Aerts is best known for his powerful strikes and high kicks.

After playing football for seven years, in 1983 Peter Aerts started to practice Tae-Kwon-Do. His interest in fight sports came from his grandfather as well as an uncle who were active in that field. In 1984 he picked up kickboxing and started training in "Judoka-Kickboxing" in Best, Netherlands with Mikki Benazzous. After a year Aerts fought his first match, and soon one victory succeeded the other. He won his first world championship title when he was nineteen.

Peter Aerts then switched to club "Champs" in Eindhoven, with Eddy Smulders, where he became world champion for the second time. After that he moved to the famous Chakuriki gym of Thom Harinck, where he had his greatest successes. In 1994 Peter Aerts became the K-1 World Champion for the first time, following up his success in 1995 and 1998. His win in 1998 is still the fastest tounament win in K-1 history, when he knocked out all of his opponents in the very first round in a record time of 6:43 minutes. He is also the only fighter who has competed in every K-1 World Grand Prix since its beginning in 1993.

In 1997 he broke the work relationship with his coach Harinck and continued training at the Mejiro Gym under Andre Mannaart, a former K-1 fighter himself. Currently Aerts has his own Team Aerts, training out of Kops Gym in Amsterdam under Jan Plas and Henry Hooft.

In December 2, 2006 Peter Aerts entered the K-1 World Grand Prix 2006 as a reserve fighter, defeating his opponent Musashi by first round knockout. After Remy Bonjasky was forced to withdraw from the tournament due to an injury, Aerts met Glaube Feitosa in the semifinals, winning his fight by TKO in the second round. His opponent in the finals was reigning World Champion Semmy Schilt, Aerts lost the fight by unanimous decision.

In June 23, 2007 at the K-1 World GP 2007 in Amsterdam Aerts faced Bob Sapp in a much-anticipated Superfight. Peter Aerts struck Sapp with the left knee, Sapp fell down and the fight was over in 0'25" in a first round. In June 2007, Aerts extended his contract with K-1 for another two years.

On September 29, 2007 Aerts met Ray Sefo at the K-1 World GP 2007 in Seoul Final 16 in Korea. He won the fight at the end of the first round by TKO corner stoppage when Ray Sefo did not answer the bell and qualified himself for 15th consecutive year to K-1 World GP 2007 Final held in December 8, 2007 at the Yokohama Arena, Japan. In quarterfinals, Aerts knocked out Junichi Sawayashiki from Japan in the first round. In the semi finals, he defeated two time K-1 World Grand Prix winner Remy Bonjasky by unanimous decision. He then moved on to face two time defending champion Semmy Schilt in the finals. Aerts lost the bout by TKO in the first round after suffering a knee injury.
