With KSW 55 in the books — a huge success with the return to form of Mamed Khalidov in the main event on Saturday — it’s on to the next one. On Monday, KSW officials officially announced KSW 56 via press release. And revealed that Roberto Soldic and Tomasz Narkun will be among the names topping the card.
Soldic (17-3) is a multi-time and current welterweight champion in the promotion. The Croatian fighter last competed at KSW 50 in London, England in September 2019, defeating Michał Pietrzak for the second defense of his 170lb title. Soldic’s only loss since 2016 came when he lost his title to Dricus Du Plessis, a loss he’d later avenge in an instant rematch.
Du Plessis recently debuted with the UFC.
No opponent for Soldic has been announced for KSW 56, though it is expected one will be named in the coming weeks. The same situation applies to Tomasz Narkun. Also sporting a 17-3 record, the light heavyweight champ hasn’t been seen since the London card either, where he successfully defended his belt against Przemysław Mysiala.
In addition to Narkun and Soldic, Karolina Owczarz (3-0) has also been announced for the event. A former pro boxer and reality TV star, the flyweight is a training partner of UFC strawweight Karolina Kowalkiewicz.
KSW 56 is expected to take place November 14. The card will stream live via KSWTV.
