KSW is set for its final show of the year this Saturday, December 18, 2021, live from Gliwice, Poland. KSW 65‘s main event will feature two of the best fighters to ever step foot into a KSW cage when the legendary middleweight champion Mamed Khalidov defends his crown against the welterweight champion Roberto Soldic in a fight set to be the biggest battle in the organization’s history. The co-main event is not to be outdone, as French sensation Salahdine Parnasse attempts to recapture his featherweight from the man he lost it to, Daniel Torres. The event can be seen worldwide on KSWtv.
From KSW Press Release:
The KSW 65 weigh-ins took place Friday morning, December 17, in Gliwice, Poland, and it proved to be full of drama.
Firstly, both Mamed Khalidov (35-7-2) and Roberto Soldic (19-3) made weight, making their Champ vs. Champ Superfight official for tomorrow night’s main event. The contest will see Khalidov defend his middleweight title against welterweight champion Roberto Soldic in a fight widely regarded as one of the biggest ever in European MMA history.
Brazil’s Daniel Torres (12-4) missed weight for his first title defense and, as a result he has been fined and stripped of the title. The bout will remain five x five minute rounds and former champSalahdine Parnasse (15-1-1) still has the opportunity to win the belt back in what is a highly anticipated rematch between these rivals in the co-main event of the evening.
On the undercard, there was some more shuffling & changes. Patryk Likus (1-0) will now face Piotr Olszynka (6-7-1) after Hassan Shaaban, who himself stepped in on just a few days notice, couldn’t make the contracted weight and Bartosz Rewera (1-0) missed weight for his bout with Shamad Erzanukaev (0-0) and will be fined accordingly.
KSW 65 is available to watch live around the world tomorrow night, December 18, on www.KSWTV.com & the KSW App and exclusively available on Viaplay in Poland, Scandinavia, & the Baltics.
