    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.
