Final Two Fights Added to KSW 43 in Poland
The KSW 43 fight card at the Hala Stulecia in Wroclaw, Poland on April 14 is now complete with eight fights in total.
Croatia’s Antun Racic (20-8-1) will face young Kamil Selwa (10-6) in a bantamweight fight. Racic made his KSW debut in Dublin last year. His original opponent Anzor Azhiev got ill the day before the weigh-ins he then faced a last minute replacement in the debuting Pawel Politylo. After three hard fought rounds Racic walked away with a decision victory. The 27-year-old made his pro debut in 2009 and has competed all over Europe in some top organisations. The German-based fighter is known for his toughness and for being very well-rounded with a dangerous submission game. Overall he has won 13 fights via submission.
23-year-old Kamil Selwa comes into this fight on a 4-1 run. In his last fight he made his KSW debut but lost to Anzor Azhiev at KSW 38. Like Racic, Selwa is very well-rounded and has competed all over Europe in various promotions but now looks to make KSW his home and a win over Racic will catapult him to near the top of the newly created KSW bantamweight division.
Two of Poland’s rising lightweights will kick-off the card as Maciej Kazieczko (3-1) faces Maciej Kalicinski (3-0) in the opening bout of the night. Kazieczko enters this contest with a 2-1 record in KSW while Kalicinski will be making his promotional debut off the back of three straight KO/TKO wins on the Polish scene.
KSW 43 takes place April 14 from the breathtaking and historic Hala Stulecia venue, built over 100 years ago. Olympic medalist Damian Janikowski (2-0) will main event his first KSW and in his hometown against former BAMMA & EFC middleweight champ Yannick Bahati (8-3). Two of the top prospects in MMA today will meet in the co-main event as Roberto Soldic (13-2) defends his recently acquired welterweight title against two-weight EFC champion Dricus Du Plessis (11-1) and Michal Andryszak (20-6) will battle Phil De Fries (14-6) for the vacant KSW heavyweight title.
