While it doesn’t have a date or location announced, September’s KSW 63 card does have a main event.
On Saturday, promotion officials announced that welterweight champion Roberto Soldic would step into the cage for the first time in 2021. After taking a fight at middleweight last year, Soldic (18-3) is set to defend his title against top contender Patrik Kincl (24-9, 1NC).
One of the most successful mixed martial artists of Croatian descent, Soldic has won gold in numerous organizations, including SBC, SMMAC, Final Fight Championship, Superior FC, and KSW. Despite over twenty pro fights to his name, the Dusseldorf, Germany-based fighter is still just 26-years old.
With KSW since 2017, Soldic’s only loss in the promotion came to current UFC star Dricus Du Plessis. The pair fought twice for the Polish promotion, with each man finishing the other in back-to-back fights.
Soldic currently sits on a five-fight win streak, dating back to the Du Plessis loss. Most recently, he stopped Michał Materla in what was Soldic’s 185lb debut.
Kincl has won his last five fights, with the past two coming inside the KSW cage. The Czech fighter has found the finish in both of his fights for the promotion. In his last outing, he stopped Tomasz Romanowski with punches in the second round.
No other fights have been announced to date for the KSW 63 card.
