Leading European mixed martial arts promotion KSW has inked one of the region’s most intriguing young undefeated prospects, Sherdog.com has learned.
Salahdine Parnasse (9-0-1), a 19-year-old featherweight from Paris suburb Aubervilliers, has signed with the Polish promotion and will debut for the league at KSW 41 on Dec. 23 in Katowice, Poland. His opponent has yet to be decided.
“We are always keeping an eye out for exciting talent and Salahdine possesses all the traits we are looking for in a fighter,” said KSW co-owner Maciej Kawulski. “He is so exciting and dynamic. And he’s already 9-0 and still so young. I can’t wait to see him in action at KSW 41.”
According to KSW, Salahdine’s deal is for three fights.
KSW 41 will be headlined by a welterweight title fight pitting champion Borys Mankowski (19-6-1) against Dricus Du Plessis (11-1) and will also feature a flyweight championship fight between Kleber Koike Erbst (22-4-1) and Artur Sowinski (18-8).
