Professional Fighters League Announces 2023 PFL Challenger Series Light Heavyweight Competitors And Bouts

NEW YORK – The Professional Fighters League (PFL), the fastest-growing and most innovative sports league, today announced the 2023 PFL Challenger Series Light Heavyweight competitors and bouts. The PFL Challenger Series is an eight-part competition that will stream exclusively on Fubo Sports, the live, free-to-consumer TV network from FuboTV Inc. (NYSE: FUBO), the leading sports-first live TV streaming platform. The Challenger Series airs live on Friday nights in primetime, beginning January 27 through March 17, and is held on the backlot of Universal Studios Florida in Orlando, with fighters looking to earn the opportunity to compete for a world championship and $1 million winner’s purse.
 
In the main event of the seventh week of the 2023 PFL Challenger Series, Impa Kasanganay, an American fighting out of Charlotte, North Carolina, will match up with Osama Elseady, a native from Cairo, Egypt. Kasanganay will put his 4-1 record on the line in the contest, while Elseady, who began his career with six straight victories, will look to become the only fighter from Egypt to earn a PFL contract.
 
“The PFL Challenger Series features fighters from around the world looking for an opportunity to build a legacy in the SmartCage and we’re excited to introduce the competitors for the Light Heavyweight division,” said PFL President of Fighter Operations, Ray Sefo. 
 
The co-main event of the night will see two Americans face-off: Nick Kohring and Joey “The Cinderella Man” Angelo.
