PostSubject: Report: Semmy Schilt retires due to heart condition   Thu Jun 27, 2013 8:04 am

Semmy Shilt is perhaps the greatest kickboxer in history, with four K-1 World GP championship titles, three of them consecutive. He is also a veteran of MMA, starting with Pancrase in 1996, and then going on to stints in the UFC and Pride.

Now it appears "The Hightower" will fight no more forever.

Over the last few months there have been various reports that four-time K-1 World Grand Prix Champion, 2012 Glory Grand Slam, and Glory Heavyweight Champion Semmy Schilt will no longer be fighting. The rumors were first centered around his participation in future tournaments, as after his victory on New Year's Eve in 2012 he stated that he would not participate in future tournaments, although it was quickly brushed off. Since then there has been talk about him fighting Gokhan Saki with the Heavyweight title on the line, but there has also been talk of Schilt no longer fighting at all.

Since last night LiverKick has received numerous reports from reliable sources that Semmy Schilt is retired, effective immediately. The decision was apparently not an easy one for Schilt, who was instructed to retire from his medical team due to a heart condition that was discovered.


"Never shall innocent blood be shed. Yet the blood of the wicked shall flow like a river. The three shall spread their blackened wings and be the vengeful striking hammer of god."[img]
