Two title fights in Poland
The first KSW event of 2022 is official, and a pair of title fights are headlining in Poland.
Saturday’s 10-fight bill for KSW 66 was made official today in Szczecin, including lightweight champion Marian Ziolkowski (23-8-1), who is looking for the second defense of his title when he will face former welterweight champion Borys Mankowski (22-8-1) in the main event of the evening.
Each man came over the championship mark at 155 pounds.
Meanwhile, in the co-main event, light heavyweight champion Tomasz Narkun (18-4) takes on Russian challenger Ibragim Chuzhigaev (15-5). Everyone makes weight with no problem.
