Joe Schilling Poised for United States Title Challenge

By Mike LNg

Joe Schilling, WBC United States super middleweight interim champion

 

Joe Schilling recently fought for and won the WBC Muay Thai super middleweight United States title, the interim one.  To quote the official WBC Muay Thai blurb on the event: “It took just 2.13 minutes for the new USA Muaythai sensation Joe Schilling to capture the national Super Middleweight interim title against Chase Green by TKO. ”

Not for a lack of fighting and giving exciting stoppage victories Schilling has yet to be granted a shot at the WBC Muay Thai USA title, not the interim one. Recently, Joe Schilling has expressed his frustration at having to fight qualifier after qualifier while a title match with United States title holder Jared Lara seemed perpetually out of grasp.  He further expressed his frustration at being ranked behind at the time number one seeded United States Thaiboxer Eric Utsch.

Now WBC Muay Thai has announced that the bout should happen with 6 months or less and that Lara had not made any title defenses recently due to being injured.  Apparently, this information was verified to the satisfaction of WBC United States Ranking President John E. Baker PHD PE. However, it’s become public knowledge that Lara was training for the Respect in the Cage MMA event held March 12th, 2011. Lara did in fact fight and win this bout by first round knockout.  It would seem Lara was not only healthy enough to fight but was healthy enough to knockout his opponent while wearing a 5 ounce MMA competition glove.

It seems internationally Schilling for his part has kept very abreast of what is happening internationally and has already eyed Steven Wakeling the newly crowned WBC Muay Thai world champion.  Not long before Wakeling’s promoter Bernard Caplin speculated on what may lie in the future and has speculated on a lack of opponents at the super middleweight limit.  It looks like Schilling is willing and able to fill that space.

Time will tell if Schilling gets his chance at Wakeling or the United States title and as an indicator the article published by the WBC makes it no easier to predict with the recent drastic shift in WBC Muay Thai’s own international rankings.

  1. THIS JOE SCHILLING IS A FAIR FIGHTER.

    HOW EVER HIS SKILLS DEVELOPMENT IS LACKING ON MAY AREAS OF THE FULL MUAY THAI SPECTRUM .

    THERE IS NEVER ANY HALF SHIN HALF ROUND KICK USED IN HIS FIGHTS,
    THIS IS A PARTICULARLY VERY THAI MOVE USED TO GRAB THE HEAD AND NECK OR SOME TIMES ARMS OF AND OPPONENT WHILE PLACING YOUR SHIN ACROSS THE MID SECTION BELLY AND PULL THEM DOWN , THIS WEARS THE OPPONET OUT AND KILL TIME PLUS GIVING THE APPLICATOR A REST ..

    SCHILLING HAS SOME INTRESTING KNEES BUT THEY NEED MORE SKILL .
    THERE IS A WORLD OF TECHNIQUES THAT ARE MISSING FROM JOE`S SKILL SET.
    WHERE ARE THE SPIN TRUNS ?? SPIN TURN INTO A KNEE.
    JOE DONT KNOW ANY OF THE MUAY THAI CLINCH THROWS !!.

    JOE SCHILLING NEEDS AN AUTHENTIC MUAY THAI TRAINER WHO DEFINITALY KNOW HOW TO TRAIN HIM IN ALL THE FIGHTING MOVE ..

    SCHILLING IS A HALF BAKED / DEVOLOPED MUAY THAI FIGHTER AT BEST .

    DONT WORRY DWANE LUDWIG AINT ONE LICK BETTER .

    WATCH DANNY BILL AND RAMON DECKER FOR DEMONSTRATIONS OF SUPERIOR MUAY THAI COMPAIRED TO SCHILLING AND THEY STILL LACKED MANY MOVES ..

    ALL IN ALL LETS SEE SCHILLING UP AGAINST ONE OF THOSE OLD SPENT ,BEAT UP THAILAND FIGHTERS THIS SUMMER COMMING 2011.

    joe schelling fought simon marcus and was manipulated and manhandeled through out all clench attempts.

    schelling`s clench in seriously deficient in all but the most basic areas , he was there to suck up knees and throws.

    clench throws beat schelling against marcus .

    presently schellling is a throwing dumby untill he learns more about the clench ..

    i dont think schelling has the mindset and will to start learning clench throws!
