Sometimes with Kickboxing timing is everything, and right now it is very clear to see why GLORY would feel it an inopportune time for one of their Heavyweight stars, Semmy Schilt, to no longer be an active fighter. While Semmy might not be the most fan-favorite fighter in the world, he is seen as one of the best Heavyweight Kickboxers of all time, with the credentials to match. Yesterday we discussed the very real rumor of Semmy Schilt being retired, as we heard from sources very close to Schilt that he was having health issues and decided to no longer fight. This did not come as a surprise to us in the least, as Schilt had already been talking about no longer participating in tournaments and there was talk of him maybe fighting once or twice more before calling an end to his career.
