Three Croatian fighters will compete in important fights on the card at KSW 76 this Saturday, November 12 at Grodzisk Mazowiecki in Poland.

The popular Francisco ‘Croata’ Barrio (10-2) will look to continue his winning ways when he faces Polish KO artist Maciej Kazieczko (8-2) in the lightweight division, former KSW bantamweight champ Antun Racic (26-10-1) meets Georgia’s Zuriko Jojua (8-1), and heavyweight slugger Filip Bradaric (5-4) will kick-off the card with Marek Samociuk (4-2)

Barrio comes into this contest having won three fights in a row, two in KSW mixed with a submission win over Vaso Bakocevic in FNC. The 33-year-old world class wrestler has his chance to move higher up the KSW rankings as opponent Kazieczko is ranked six in the official rankings and is also a former KSW title challenger.

After suffering back to back losses in KSW, Antun Racic bounced back with a win outside KSW earlier this year and will be aiming to build upon this in order to work towards his title. 

However, he faces a tough test in Jojua who scored an impressive submission win over Racic’s UFD teammate Shamil Banukayev in his promotional debut earlier this year.

Finally, Filip Bradaric returns to KSW after a hard fought loss to Tomasz Sarara last year. The German-based heavyweight meets Marek Samociuk, who has had mixed results in KSW himself, in what should be a fun opening fight on the card.
