Five-time world’s strongest man Mariusz Pudzianowski (12-6) will meet Olympic Gold medallist Szymon Kołecki (6-1) in the main event of KSW 47 at the Atlas Arena in Lodz, Poland on March 23.
Former multi-time world’s strongest man winner Mariusz Pudzianowski will have the chance to test his strength against another powerful opponent in his next fight at KSW 47.
Pudzianowski (12-6) will face Olympic gold medalist weightlifter Szymon Kolecki (6-1) in a heavyweight fight at the March event in Poland.
KSW 47 takes place March 23 at the Atlas Arena in Lodz, Poland. The event streams on KSWTV.com.
Pudzianowski, 42, hasn’t fought since a first-round submission loss to Karol Bedorf at KSW 44 in June. The defeat snapped a three-fight winning streak for “Pudzian,” who has fought all but one of his pro MMA bouts under the KSW banner.
Kolecki, 37, meanwhile, will make his promotional debut on the heels of his first loss. After starting his career with six-straight stoppages, Kolecki lost to Michal Bobrowski by decision in August. The silver medal winner at the 2000 Olympic Games in Sydney and gold medalist at the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing will have the chance to put that behind him, though, with the matchup against Pudzianowski.
