Two undefeated fighters will clash in the upcoming KSW 54 main event with the lightweight belt on the line.
On Wednesday morning, InTheCage.pl reported that Mateusz Gamrot would defend his 155-pound title against Shamil Musaev at KSW 54. The news was officially announced by the KSW a couple of hours later.
In his latest cage appearance, Gamrot (16-0) outclassed Norman Parke in a grudge match that settled their bitter rivalry once and for all at KSW 53. Prior, "Gamer" edged former KSW featherweight champion Kleber Koike Erbst at KSW 46, becoming the first two-division champion in the Polish promotion's history. The upcoming fight will be the last one on Gamrot's contract with KSW. The Polish fighter will have plenty of opportunities for his future, but he never hid that he wants to compete in the Ultimate Fighting Championship.
So far, Musaev (14-0) has collected a couple of victories under the KSW banner. He made his promotional debut by smashing Hubert Szymajda via TKO in the opening round at KSW 48. Then, he rendered Grzegorz Szulakowski unconscious thanks to a highlight-reel spinning back fist at KSW 52.
KSW 54 will go down in on Aug. 29. The card will also feature former professional boxer and kickboxer Izuagbe Ugonoh's debut in MMA. "Izu" will take on Quentin Domingos in the heavyweight division. On the same night, Maciej Kazieczko will face Marian Ziolkowski in a 155-pound clash.
