Two exciting fights have been added to KSW 44 at the Ergo Arena in Gdansk, Poland on June 9, as rising featherweight star Filip Wolanski (11-2) faces dangerous Brazilian Daniel Torres (7-3) while bantamweights Sebastian Przybysz (3-1) and Dawid Gralka (6-1) will both kick-off the card in what will be their respective KSW debuts.
Wolanski comes into this fight having secured consecutive decision wins over Bartłomiej Kopera and Denilson Neves. The 26-year-old is in impressive form with wins in ten of his last eleven bouts, the sole loss coming via decision to former champ Marcin Wrzosek at KSW 35. Now, he will look to continue that impressive run as he welcomes Daniel Torres to the KSW federation.
Hailing from Brazil, Torres arrives at KSW in the midst of an impressive run of his own. Starting his professional career with two consecutive loses, he has since embarked on a run which has seen him win seven of his last eight fights and has registered a number of exciting KO finishes in that time. The 24-year-old will now look to make a splash in his KSW debut by silencing the Polish crowd in Gdansk.
Also making their debuts will be a pair of Polish prospects, as Gdansk’s own Sebastian Przybysz and Dawid Gralka kick-off the KSW 44 card. The bantamweights will both be looking to start their KSW careers with a bang. With two finishes already to his name, Przybysz may have the support of the crowd but Gralka enters on a four-fight-win-streak and carries a well deserved reputation for snatching leglocks early in the fight.
KSW 44 takes place June 9 from the Ergo Arena in Gdansk, Poland and will be available live around the world on www.KSWTV.com. The main event features an entertaining heavyweight contest between Mariusz Pudzianowski and Karol Bedorf.
