KSW Federation heats up the atmosphere before the September’s KSW 24 show, announcing two title fights featured on the star-studded fight card.
Karol Bedorf vs. Paweł Nastula
Karol Bedorf and Paweł Nastula will lock horns in the battle for the inaugural KSW heavyweight championship. This monumental clash will go down in history of the organization led by Martin Lewandowski and Maciej Kawulski.
Bedorf has been waiting for this opportunity since 2009, when he decided to go up from light heavyweight. Since then, the popular “Coco” has fought five times for KSW, including valuable victories over KSW tournament champion David Oliva and UFC vet Oli Thompson.
Nastula made his KSW debut this Spring, when he needed only three minutes to submit the American Kevin Asplund. The 1996 judo Olympic Champion has nine professional MMA bouts under his belt and is the only Pole, who fought for the now defunct, legendary Pride organization.
Maciej Jewtuszko vs. Andre Winner
In the second championship bout on the KSW 24 card Maciej Jewtuszko will defend his lightweight strap against the former UFC fighter Andre Winner in the three 5-minute affair with a possible 5-minute extra time.
It will be “Irokez’s” first defense of the title he won in December 2012, when he defeated Artur Sowinski at KSW 21 in Warsaw. Since signing with KSW, Jewtuszko has fought three times for the Polish promotion, collecting two stoppage victories. His KSW 24 outing, will be his thirteen professional MMA fight.
– I would like to disenchant Łódź, as I suffered the defeat to “Kornik” there. As for the thirteenth fight, I’m not superstitious. I go out and do everything in my power to retain the belt – Maciek promises.
Winner is a household name on the European MMA circuit. His biggest career achievement is reaching the final of the Ultimate Fighter reality show and handful of fights for the biggest show in the world UFC. What is interesting, one of Winner’s teammates Dean Amasinger competed in KSW and was beaten by non-other than Jewtuszko himself. That is why the Britt is even more motivated to win the title and take revenge for his friend.
His KSW24 bout will his twenty-forth in professional career and the second one this year. Last week Andre fought in the US, defeating experienced American Drew Fickett on points.
Two super interesting title bouts featured on the awaited “Clash of the Giants” card have to raise excitement of the fans. You have to see it live.
