KSW 52 is the final offer of the best promotions in Europe in 2019 and will be one of the biggest events of the year. For the first time in history, KSW will hold six events a year, all of which will be closed with the aforementioned performances on Saturday, December 7, in Gliwice, Poland. Title featherweight has already been added to the lineup to strengthen the card. Temporary featherweight champion Salahdine Parnasse is defending his belt for the first time with veteran Ivan Buchinger of the European scene.
Parnasse (13-0-1) has already defeated the biggest names in the KSW featherweight division since its promotional debut in 2017. Two previous champions, Artur Sowinski and Marcin & # 39; The Polish Zombie & # 39; Wrzosek, won the game. In his last outing in April, undefeated France prospects claimed a temporary featherweight title at the main event of KSW 48. He won the title with a TKO final against Roman Szymanski in the second round. The title was introduced after controversial Mateusz Gamrot gained huge popularity at MMA earlier this year.
Considering finding the first blemish on Saladin's record and grabbing the belt in the process, it will be former M-1 and cage warrior champion Ivan Burchinger (36-6). Buchinger will make his KSW debut with four wins. Buchinger beat Mansour Barnaoui and Stevie Ray in his record, seeing Slovakia win 30 of his 36 victories.
The KSW 52 is expected to be a headline with an untitled catchweight bout featuring the Polish MMA icon Mamed Khalidov. Carly Dopp retired to sign middleweight champion Scott Askham. At the co-hosted event, Olympic medalists Damian Janikowski and Szymon Kolecki will also clash in the battle of weightlifting with Greco-Roman wrestlers.
