I don’t really have an argument about Aerts’ fighting style or his accomplishments and I don’t want to start any kind of discussion. I’ve been admiring Peter since the first time I saw him fight and I’ve always been astonished as to how fighting seems to be what this man was made for. He never had the best technique (even though…!!) but never have I seen anyone more at home in the ring. He has known heavy losses and periods of malfunctioning, but those were merely fysical. I can’t remember ever seeing a crack in his spirit and that, to me, can only demand utter respect.
It saddens me deeply to see him end his career (even though I think the time had come), but he still is, and always will be a true inspiration.
the best technique, he have, piet, but not the best ideas. he has not malfunktion shown – he got angry about “this and that” in this “dungeons&dragons”. no – his spirit is cracked, because of the leko knockout – and his nose 2. this you can see. he is not ending his career, the cummitee that openes the fights, advised him todo so. don’t you know their “timeisover”-yelling missions? so – overall piet – you turn it all viceversa, perhaps to “schoner” your own name. no you are piet and not pit, nor peter. peter is a different type – more grown. what piet do is what you made out of the verity. and i don’t like that – keep at your holzschuhes, punsky! rm1911
