Title showdown in Lodz!
“KSW56” is about Europe’s MMA light heavyweight crown on Saturday. Champion Tomasz Narkun (30 / Poland), the longest reigning KSW title holder, will meet the still unbeaten Ivan Erslan (28) from Croatia.
Only with BILDplus can you follow the fight evening (from 8 p.m.) live from Germany! In addition to “WeLoveMMA”, this year BILD is also showing the fights of Europe’s gigantic cage fighting series exclusively. Register HERE now!
Narkun determined the best-filled division in the light heavyweight division for more than five years. At that time the “giraffe” was the first KSW fighter to defeat cage legend Mamed Khalidov (40).
Now the Pole wants to defend his belt for the fifth time in a row, says to BILD: “It was a long year without a fight, but I never stopped training and improving.”
And Narkun announced in BILD: “Ivan is a good fighter, he will be a challenge. Still, I’ll show again why I’m the best light heavyweight in Europe. I will keep my title and destroy his unbeaten record. KSW fans in Germany and around the world should not miss this fight. “
Madness: When Narkun rose to KSW champion in 2015, his opponent only started as a professional. He has been unbeaten since then, and after his debut in Europe’s strongest MMA series, he ended every fight in the first round – with a knockout.
Accordingly, Erslan confidently announces: “Winning the KSW light heavyweight title and beating a great fighter like Tomasz Narkun will confirm that I am the best in Europe in this division.”
Erslan continues: He has a big mouth and I’m looking forward to it, because afterwards he will show me the respect I deserve. “
