This Saturday night in the KSW 53: Reborn main event the undisputed KSW lightweight champion will be decided as interim-lightweight champion Norman Parke (28-6-1) and lightweight champ Mateusz Gamrot (15-0) go head to head in the final chapter of their heated rivalry.
The two champions have had one of the most intense and wildest rivalries ever seen in the KSW arena. Their first meeting took place at the historic KSW 39 event in front of almost 58,000 people with Gamrot walking away with a narrow decision and the second contest ended controversially with a no-contest at KSW 40 in Dublin, Ireland.
Since then both men have went undefeated with both adding KSW gold. Norman Parke won the interim-lightweight championship with a win over Marcin Wrzosek at KSW 50 while Mateusz Gamrot became a dual-weight KSW champion after capturing the featherweight championship with a dominant display at KSW 46 months prior.
Two men enter, a score will be settled, and only one will leave as the undisputed lightweight champion this Saturday at KSW 53.
