The KSW bantamweight title will be on the line at KSW 59: Fight Code on March 20th when Croatia’s Antun Račić (25-8-1) defends his belt against Poland’s Sebastian Przybysz (7-2) in the co-main event.

Račić as been a dominating force since entering the promotion in 2017, winning six fights straight. The 30-year-old made history at KSW 51 in his native Croatia by becoming the first ever 135lb champion in KSW history with a win over veteran fighter Damian Stasiak.

The pride of Dubrovnik successfully defended his title against top Brazilian prospect Bruno Santos in his most recent contest this past December and will aim to hold onto the title when he meets the challenging Sebastian Przybysz in a rematch of their bout from 2018.

Since their last meeting, Przybysz has had three impressive wins in a row with victories over European MMA veterans Bogdan Barbu & Lemmy ‘The Dog’ Krusic and, most recently, he avenged his first professional loss by stopping the highly rated Jakub Wikłacz.
