KSW 50: London is now in sight, set to take place Saturday September 14, 2019 live from London, England inside the SSE Arena. The KSW golden show can be seen on KSW.tv anywhere around the world. Of the eight fights listed for the big show, four of them will be contested for KSW titles. One of those titles on the line is the welterweight strap which currently belongs to Roberto Soldic. The dangerous Croatian striker will look to defend his title for the second time after recapturing the gold from Dricus Du Plessis at KSW 45 in October 2018.
The Build-Up to KSW 50
Many fighters will say they will fight “any place any time” but very few back it up like Soldic. The welterweight champion took on Vinicius Bohrer on two weeks notice at KSW 46, less than two months after recapturing the welterweight championship. Bohrer was 16-6 at the time winning six of his last seven bouts. Soldic is the consummate competitor, always looking to compete and win. “For me to fight on KSW 50, I’m a little bit more pumped but doesn’t make much of a difference,” Soldic stated to MMASucka. “I go inside the cage trying trying to do my best and show my best. Doesn’t matter the number of the event.
Soldic is known for his knockout of the year candidate style victories. The champion feels he can get the victory wherever the matchup goes. “I always do my best so I believe in my MMA skills. Doesn’t matter what it is; KO, TKO, or submission,” Soldic told MMASucka. “The win is very important for me.”
KSW 50 Matchup
Soldic’s opponent for KSW 50 is promotional newcomer, Patrik Kincl. The 30 year old Czech fighter represents All Sports Academy out of the Czech Republic with a professional record of 22-9. The majority of Kincl’s bouts within the last handful of years have been battled in ACB and most recently XFN based out of the Czech Republic. Regardless of Kincl making his debut and Solidc being the biggest name on his resume by far, Soldic is not taking the challenge lightly. “My opponent [Kincl] is very dangerous and tough; he is having the best year of his career. It’s a good fight for him because he doesn’t have anything to lose. I am ready for everyone who is in front of me. Looking forward for a good fight!”
