Croatia’s Ivan Erslan (11-1) and Filip ‘Nitro’ Pejić (15-6-2) will be back in action at KSW 67 in Warsaw on February 26.
Erslan will take on the undefeated Hasan Mezhiev (12-0) of Latvia in what is a very important fight in the KSW light heavyweight division. The 30 year old challenged for the title at KSW 56 but lost to then champion Tomasz Narkun.
He has since bounced back with two stoppage wins in a row and could be back in the title picture with a win at KSW 67. Mezhiev will be making his promotional debut and arrives as one of the top light heavyweights in Europe.
Joining Erslan on the KSW 67 fight card is his ATT Zagreb teammate Filip Pejić. The man known as ‘Nitro’, due to his exciting fighting style, steps in to face Poland’s Dawid Śmiełowski (8-0).
Pejić has become a fan favourite in KSW since joining the promotion in 2019 and has been involved in some of the most thrilling fights in the promotion in recent years. However, the 29 year old will need to be in top form for KSW 67 as he welcomes the debuting Dawid Śmiełowski, one of Poland’s top prospects.
KSW 67 will be headlined by a heavyweight title fight between champion Phil De Fries (20-6) and Serbia’s Darko Stošić (16-4) and will be available to watch for Croatian & Balkan fans live on www.KSWTV.com.
