A third title fight has been made official for KSW 57 on December 19 live globally on www.KSWTV.com. Croatia’s Antun Racic (24-8-1) will defend his KSW bantamweight title against Brazilian prospect Bruno Santos (9-1).
Racic made history at KSW 51 last year after becoming the first ever KSW bantamweight champion. The 30-year-old defeated Damian Stasiak by decision in his native Croatia to earn his place in the KSW history books. Overall Racic has won five straight fights since joining the promotion in 2017. The UFD Gym product will now be aiming to make a successful first defense to his title on December 19th.
At just 22-years-old, Bruno Santos joins KSW and immediately has the biggest opportunity of his young career. While 2020 has been a slow year for most due to the Covid-19 pandemic, Santos has already won two fights in his native Brazil this year. The youngster will have confidence and momentum heading into this contest.
This title fight joins two others on the KSW 57 card. The UK’s Phil De Fries (18-6) defends his heavyweight crown against Polish veteran Michal Kita (20-11-1) while Polish stars Marian Ziolkowski (21-8-1) and Roman Szymanski (13-5) meet for the vacant KSW lightweight title.
