The French sensation Salahdine Parnasse (16-1-1) is back this Saturday, March 19, at KSW 68 to defend his crown against Poland’s number one ranked featherweight Daniel Rutkowski (13-2) live around the world on www.KSWTV.com & exclusively on Viaplay in select regions.
Despite being only 24 years old, Parnasse has amassed an impressive fight resume which includes wins over former KSW champs and European MMA & UFC veterans. He is also a two-time KSW featherweight champ having regained the title in his last fight against Daniel Torres following a shock defeat to the Brazilian months prior.
Described in France as MMA’s version of Kylian Mbappé, the Parisian heads into Radom, Poland, this weekend, the hometown of opponent Daniel Rutkowski.
KSW fans have long dreamed of this match-up. While Parnasse was trailblazing his way through KSW, Rutkowski was dominating the Polish scene winning thirteen straight fights and becoming a multi-promotional champion. The 32 year old finally made his long-awaited debut at KSW 64 this past October defeated Filip Pejic with a highlight reel head kick KO.
Now it’s time to find out who is truly the best featherweight in KSW!
Also on the card, Michał Pietrzak (10-4-1) faces the Polish Rocky Balboa Tomasz Romanowski (14-8) in the co-main event, Olympic medalist Damian Janikowski (6-4) clashes with Tomasz Jakubiec (10-3), and former Chelsea FC goalkeeper & DWCS vet Ricardo Prasel (11-3) makes his KSW debut against veteran Michal Kita (21-13-1).
