In the main event of KSW 64, Poland’s Sebastian Przybysz (8-2) will put his KSW bantamweight championship on the line for the first time as he faces top Brazilian prospect Bruno dos Santos (10-2) and the co-main event will feature a monstrous clash between five-time world’s strongest man Mariusz Pudzianowski (15-7) and Senegalese heavyweight wrestling legend Bombardier (2-0).
“KSW 64 really encapsulates what KSW is all about in the present day. On one side we have our spectacle fight in Pudzianowski vs. Bombardier and on the other, we have the next wave of KSW stars in action. Fights like Pudzianowski vs. Bombardier are what helped establish KSW to become what it is today.
