Instant classic: Ernesto Hoost – Jerome Le Banner, K-1 WGP 1999 (video)

The 1999 K-1 Grand Prix event was the 7th annual tournament that included the best 8 heavyweight kickboxers.

Sam Greco, Ernesto Hoost, Mirko Cro Cop, Musashi, Peter Aerts, Andy Hug, Ray Sefo, and Jerome Le Banner all managed to qualify for the quarter-finals.

Nearly 60 000 fans were packed inside the “Tokyo Dome” in Japan’s capital city, as the second semifinal was reserved for Netherland’s Ernesto Hoost and France’s Jerome Le Banner.

It’s the third time those two are facing each other and up to this point, they both have one win under their belts.

Even though Hoost has fought a full three rounds against Andy Hug at the quarterfinals and Le Banner has beaten Peter Aerts inside the opening round, things go south for the French pretty quickly.
