KSW is set for its second event of 2021 with KSW 59 scheduled for Saturday, February 20, 2021, in Poland. The first matchup has been announced and it will feature a bantamweight title clash as champion Antun Racic defends his crown against Sebastian Przybysz. Mariusz Pudzianowski is also scheduled to compete on the card but without an opponent as of now.
Racic vs Przybysz II at KSW 59
Champion Antun Racic
Winning the inaugural KSW bantamweight championship, Racic (25-8-1) will make his second title defense as he faces a familiar foe in Przybysz. The two previously met in December 2018 at KSW 46 where Racic was victorious by unanimous decision. Racic is undefeated since joining KSW in October 2017 (6-0) where he has won every bout by decision. “Killer” has also proved how dangerous he can be on the mat, finishing 13 of his 25 victories by submission. Racic’s keys to victory will be controlling the pace and pressuring Przybysz, not allowing him to use his dangerous striking ability. With wins over the organization’s top bantamweights, finishing off Przybysz could set up Racic for a nice tenured run as champion.
Challenger Sebastian Przybysz
Sebastian Przybysz (7-2) will get another shot at defeating Racic, but this time the KSW bantamweight championship will be on the line. Since losing to Racic, Przybysz has won three in a row, including his most-recent victory being a third-round TKO at KSW 53 in July 2020. Przybysz is a dangerous striker securing four of his seven victories by KO/TKO. The 27-year-old Polish striker has a huge opportunity in front of him. Securing a win over a veteran of the organization could set up Przybysz for a long run on top. Racic will not give up that crown so quickly so look for this to be an absolute battle at KSW 59.
