This weekend Semmy Schilt and Errol Zimmerman will do battle to be crowned as the very first Glory Heavyweight Champion, in a battle of two of the sport’s best heavyweights at very different places in their careers. Schilt, with four K-1 World Grand Prix Championships under his belt as well as holding the K-1 Super Heavyweight Championship, has been on top of the Kickboxing world for nearly a decade now, while Zimmerman is younger and has yet to see the level of success that Schilt has. Zimmerman has for a long time been referred to as a fighter with endless potential, but fans and pundits have gotten down on Zimmerman for some of his weaker efforts. In 2011 Zimmerman went on a tear, amassing a massive win streak heading into his fight with Schilt.
This video from Glory TV talks to Schilt about the upcoming bout. Don’t forget to purchase the event, coming on May 26th, from your friends here at LiverKick.
