Ernesto Hoost Fight List

During the K-1 Grand Prix in 1993, Hoost won in the quarterfinals against Peter Aerts by decision. Moving on to the semifinals, Hoost knocked out Maurice Smith and advanced to the finals. His match in the finals was against Branko Cikatic who defeated Hoost by knockout. He got another title shot at the end of 1993 at the K-2 World Championship where he won by knockout during the fourth round against Changpuek Kiatsongrit.

Hoost made it to the K-1 World Grand Prix finals again in 1995, but lost by decision after four rounds to Peter Aerts. Following this fight, he went on to win all of his other fights during the year 1995. In 1996 he lost by split decision after 5 rounds to Andy Hug during the World Grand Prix finals. Finally, he became the K-1 World Champion in 1996 after defeating Hug and avenging his loss by a three round unanimous decision.

In 1998 Hoost was unable to defend his title as he lost to Australian Sam Greco by technical knockout in the quarterfinals. Greco was dominant for most of the fight, but Hoost was unable to continue into the third round due to a cut above his left eye.

Hoost won his second K-1 World Grand Prix title in 1999 after beating Mirko Cro Cop by technical knockout in the third round. Shortly after in 2000 Hoost was able to avenge his loss to Greco by beating him by technical knockout.

Hoost was able to grasp the K-1 World Grand Prix Championship title for the third time by defeating Ray Sefo in 2000. At this time there were many fans who were highly anticipating a match between Hoost and Bob Sapp. The fighters delivered on the demand by fighting at the 2002 K-1 World Grand Prix Final Elimination. Due to the amount of cuts Hoost had sustained, the doctor stopped the match after the first round, awarding Sapp a win by technical knockout. The two ended up facing each other again in the quarterfinals of the K-1 World Grand Prix 2002. They traded knockdowns back and forth in the first round and put on an excellent fight, and Sapp went on to win again after the referee declared a knockout while Hoost was still standing.

Ironically, Sapp suffered a broken hard and four cracked ribs as a result of the fight and was unable to continue, so Hoost replaced him in the semifinals despite having lost earlier in the tournament. Hoost defeated Say Sefo in the first round of the semifinals by TKO after Sefo suffered an injury to his shin. Hoost progressed to the finals where he faced Jerome Le Banner. The fight had notably been going in the favor of Banner until he injured his arm in the third round. Picking up on this, Hoost attacked that arm relentlessly and was able to secure a TKo finish with only 94 seconds left in the fight. Afterwards it was discovered that Banner had suffered a severe compound fracture that took him out of competition for over a year.

In 2003 Hoost began competing in professional wrestling, where he had the opportunity to continue his feud with Bob Sapp at AJPW’s 2nd Wrestle-1 event. Hoost won the bout with a schoolboy pin.

Hoost also fought in a number of super fights in addition to all of his Grand Prix titles. He made it to the K-1 World Grand Prix finals once again in 2004, but was defeated by Remy Bonjasky. In 2006 Hoost announced that his last tournament in K-1 would be the K-1 World Grand Prix 2006. He lost to Semmy Schilt in the semi-finals, but was greeted with a standing ovation as he left the arena.

Since his retirement Hoost has transitioned into the role of a coach. He is widely known for his role in coaching “Knees of Fury” fighter Paul Slowinski. Under Hoost’s training, Slowinski won the K-1 tournament in Amsterdam in 2007. Hoost also served as a cornerman for numerous fights of UFC fighter Antoni Hardonk, such as his bout at UFC 84 against Eddie Sanchez, UFC 92 against Mike Messel, and EFC 97 against Cheik Kongo.

Hoost made a surprise comeback at age 48 and shocked the kickboxing community. He defeated Thomas Stanley at Hoost Cup: Legend in Japan in 2014 after scoring 2 knockdowns and winning by unanimous decision. His final fight to date was against Peter Aerts for their sixth meeting in October 2014. Hoost won by unanimous decision to win the vacant WKO World Heavyweight Championship.
