Multiple Polish websites have confirmed that an MMA match between former strongman Mariusz Pudzianowski and former professional boxer Eric “Butterbean” Esch will headline KSW 14. The card will take place on Sept. 18 at Lodz Atlas Arena in Lodz, Poland.
Thirty-six-year-old professional boxer Rafał Jackiewicz has signed a multi-fight contract with KSW Federation to compete in mixed martial arts. Born in Mińsk Mazowiecki, Jackiewicz originally began his fight career as a kickboxer but later switched to professional boxing. Beginning with his first fight in February 2001, Jackiewicz amassed a record of 42-11-2 in the welterweight division. In 2010 Jackiewicz contended for the IBF world title and is one of the few Poles to hold the EBU European championship.
