Brice Guidon Fought Semmy Schilt With a Leg Injury, Out of Action Until 2013

GuidonMany say that without a doubt, Semmy Schilt is the #1 Heavyweight (or in his case, Super Heavyweight) in the world of Kickboxing, but in March of this year, in his first fight back, he fought a very, very game Brice Guidon. Guidon has has a good career, but has just fallen short of elite status with losses to Gokhan Saki and Sergei Laschenko, most recently, obviously, the loss to Schilt. If you caught the fight between Schilt and Guidon, you'd probably note just how good Guidon looked against a fighter on the level of Semmy Schilt. Better than most fighters could ever imagine to look.

In a mind-blowing revelation, Guidon recently revealed that he was injured for that fight and was barely mobile.

"I broke my knee ligament 2 weeks before my fight against Schilt, of course i want to do the fight no matter what, maybe not that smart, ahah. I can't use my right leg during the fight, i try 2-3 times but i think it was more painfull to me that to Sem, ahah.

Right after my fight i get a suregery and i ll be back beginning of 2013..."

We wish Guidon a speedy recovery, and can only imagine how good he'll look upon his return if he looked that good injured against Schilt.

New Blood At 70kg Was Showcased This Past Weekend At K-1, GLORY

For a long time, the field at 70kg in kickboxing was much of the same, with the usual crew of Masato, Andy Souwer, Buakaw and Albert Kraus and Mike Zambidis constantly being at or around the top. Then came along Artur Kyshenko and Yoshihiro Sato as two of the next ones to join the top of the division and finally, Giorgio Petrosyan, cementing himself as the number one fighter in a division where Masato was gone and Buakaw also, as he was fighting Muay Thai, not being invited to K-1.

Now we've got GLORY alongside K-1, and it's split the talent down the middle in the 70kg tournament. What this has also done is showcased some new blood in the 70kg division that we might not have otherwise been able to see compete on the big stage if it was just one tournament with 16 participants. GLORY and K-1 both picked up some fighters for the tournaments that weren't very well known, or unproven, and now everyone is wanting to see more of them.

Reese McCallister, a virtual unknown to most before Sunday, put on a great performance and now is right in the mix in the Final 8 of K-1's tournament. Shemsi Beqiri, although known, got another chance to prove himself on the world stage. Sanny Dahlbeck, a 67kg Muay Thai fighter showed he's also a good fighter under kickboxing rules and has huge potential, not only as a fighter but as a fan favorite with his charisma. Even Fabio Pinca, one of the top international Muay Thai fighters at 67kg, gave a very good showing against Giorgio Petrosyan in a competitive, tactical fight. These are just a select few.

At one point in time, it really did look like the usual guys at the top of the 70kg division fighting for K-1 would just keep at the top for a very long time without being contested by anyone else much. Of course, the talent was and is out there, it's just a matter of the right fighters getting the right opportunities to shine, much like what happened this past weekend at K-1 and GLORY.
