If you own a Muay Thai or Kickboxing gym you wouldn’t expect anyone to come in looking for a fight.
For former Glory Kickboxing fighter Shemsi Beqiri not only did someone come into his gym looking for a fight, they brought 20 masked men armed with bats and other weapons.
The whole incident took place in 2014 at Reinach Superpro Sportcenter in Basel, Switzerland. That is the gym of Beqiri.
For those not familiar with Shemsi Beqiri, he a Swiss Muay Thai fighter and Kickboxer. He holds a record of 76-9 and has been in the ring with some of the best fighters in the world including Giorgio Petrosyan, Robin van Roosmalen, and Yoshihiro Sato. You might ask who would try and run up on him in his gym and challenge him to a fight with 20 armed and masked men? The answer is pretty crazy.
His former trainer Paulo Balicha, was the man behind the raid.
This sounds like something out of a martial arts movie at this point, but it actually happened and it was recorded.
