The Warsaw native, who can compete in the heavyweight and light heavyweight divisions, made his pro MMA debut in 2015 and has been training in the Berkut WCA Fight Team gym, one of the top gyms in Poland and home to the likes of Anzor Azhiev, Damian Janikowski, Mariusz Pudzianowski and many more.
The 29-year-old began his MMA adventure with a 30 second KO before winning his follow up fight via decision against a much more experienced opponent. Back to back losses followed for Szoztak, including one against strongman Tyberiusz Kowalczyk, and then he took a break away from the sport. The in April this year he returned with a bang and won via second round TKO.
Posting via his Facebook page today, Szostak said it was his dream to fight in KSW and will also donate his first fight purse to charity.
"As of today, I am a fighter for KSW! It was my dream, but today I want it to be more! That’s why my first wage for fighting is going to help children from the Cancer FIGHTERS Foundation not everything in life we do for money."
