And Now He’s Retired: Heart Condition Forces K1 Legend Semmy Schilt to Call it Quits

(Whereas there could also be other, better Semmy Schilt highlights out there, we guaran-rattling-tee you that now not a one among them incorporates more shouting.) 

Well, it is a disgrace.

Consistent With Liverkick.com, K1 legend and two-time UFC veteran Semmy “Hightower” Schilt has been compelled to hold up his gloves after being made mindful that he is suffering from a serious Coronary Heart Condition, the specifics of which have now not yet been made to be had.

Whereas rumors of Schilt’s impending retirement were circulating ever because the close to 7 foot kickboxer introduced that the Glory 4 Tokyo: Special 2012 ~ New Year’s Eve event — which he efficiently claimed by defeating Daniel Ghita by means of first spherical TKO in the finals — can be his last, battle enthusiasts were still maintaining out hope that Schilt would make a handy guide a rough turnaround on his decision as fighters are wont to do.

Unfortunately, the contemporary prognosis has formally closed the door for one of the vital best (if now not the finestheavyweight kickboxers of all time. Schilt retires with a 42-6-1 kickboxing report and a 26-14 MMA report to his credit, in addition to 5 K1 Grand Prix titles and the claim of being the final K1 Super-Heavyweight Champion.

We right here at CagePotato wish to wish Semmy the perfect of success in his future endeavors and hope that he’s ready to beat whatever illness is at present afflicting him in the safest, most well timed method conceivable.
