Poland’s KSW returned to action on Saturday, January 15, kicking off their 2022 year with a pair of title fights atop KSW 66.
In the main event, Marian Ziółkowski put his title on the line against his toughest test to date as champ — former welterweight title holder Borys Mańkowski. Since dropping down to 155lbs, Mańkowski had been perfect, and was looking to claim a second KSW title in his new weight class.
In the co-main event, meanwhile, Tomasz Narkun put his light heavyweight title on the line against promotional newcomer Ibragim Chuzhigaev. Russia’s Chuzhigaev, a veteran of ACA/ACB and other promotions, rode a six-fight winning streak into the event.
KSW 66 goes down live on Saturday, January 15 at the Netto Arena in Szczecin, Poland. The event streams live via KSW.tv starting at 1PM ET. Full results can be found below.
