Ernesto Hoost has won four Grand Prix championships. There won’t be a fifth anytime soon, as the K-1 legend is now out of the upcoming K-1 Grand Prix. Hoost released this statement on his website.

“I’m sorry to say that due to a persistant injury I will not be able to participate in the Rotterdam Rumble on October 9th in AHOY’. This is also the reason why I will not fight the K-1 eliminations on September 23 in Japan.”

“I promised myself only to fight when I’m injury free but I still have hopes to fight this year. Where or when I don’t know yet but I will let you know. I especially apologize to everyone who doesn’t have the opportunity to go to
Japan and thought this was the best possibility to see me fight. Anyway I wish you all a pleasant evening and hopefully good fights.”
