FightBook MMA received confirmation that Croatia’s Ivan Erslan (9-0) will challenge Poland’s Tomasz Narkun (17-3) for the KSW light heavyweight title in the co-main event of KSW 56 on November 14th in Lodz, Poland.
Croatia’s Ivan Erslan (9-0) will challenge KSW champion Tomasz Narkun (17-3) in the co-main event of KSW 56 scheduled to take place on November 14 in Lodz, Poland.
Tomasz Narkun is the longstanding KSW light heavyweight champion and is widely regarded as one of the best in the world at 205lbs. The 30-year-old has career wins over the likes of Goran Reljic, MMA veteran Sokoudjou, Przemysław Mysiala, and became the first man ever to beat the legend Mamed Khalidov in KSW.
With a 94% finishing ratio and thirteen first-round stoppages, Narkun is certainly one of the most dangerous light heavyweights on the planet today.
His opponent for KSW 56 is Ivan Erslan, an undefeated fighter competing out of the ATT Zagreb gym. The 28-year-old made his promotional debut at KSW 51 last November in his native Croatia. The entire Arena Zagreb jumped to their feet with excitement as Erslan defeated Spain’s Darwin Rodriguez with an emphatic first-round TKO. The 28-year-old then scored another first-round stoppage win this past July at FNC 3 in Croatia, thus cementing his position as the number one contender for the light heavyweight title in KSW.
Both Narkun and Erslan are known for their finishes, making this contest exciting and unpredictable.
In the main event of KSW 56, welterweight king Roberto Soldic (17-3) jumps up to the middleweight division to face former champion & KSW legend Michal Materla (29-7) in an explosive contest and one of Soldic’s toughest fights to date.
