Oh man mine was way back. I was 5-6 and I somehow saw the 94 grand prix and my Aerts love began after that. Right after that I started Karate (only thing I could do around where I lived at that age) and then moved on to kickboxing and boxing when I got a little older. I don't remember to much about when I was that young but that grand prix has always stuck with me.

I started in like 6th and 7th grade. When I would come home from school they always had kickboxing and K-1 on ESPN. I didn't have any idea who the fighters were but I loved watching it.

I've been watching kickboxing for as long as I can remember because my dad was a huge fan. He used to get these bootleg copies of fights from overseas and I used to love watching those with him.

After I got out of prison the first fight I watched was JLB vs Frye (Shockwave), I always loved JLB and there was no way I was missing that fight. JLB didn't disappoint me, winning by brutal stand up clinic KO. That fight really was the one that got me back into K-1.

I'm not toooo sure, but I remember it had something to do with JLB, back when he had the blonde hair. Then I believe I lost contact, until I picked up on K-1 with Crocop vs. Sapp.
