Croatia’s Sara Luzar Smajić (3-1) faces Poland’s Natalia Baczyńska (6-1) at KSW 69 on April 23 live from Warsaw, Poland, on www.KSWTV.com.
Hailing from Zagreb and training out of the UFD Gym in Germany, Smajić made a successful start to her KSW career with a unanimous decision win over Spain’s Aitana Alvarez at KSW 63 last September. The 26-year-old is now aiming to build upon this win and make a push towards the vacant KSW women’s flyweight title.
However, looking to halt those plans is the in-form Natalia Baczyńska. Making her KSW debut, ‘Baka’ comes into the promotion on a six-fight win-streak and is fully motivated to make a winning start to her KSW career.
The main event of KSW 69 will see Sebastian Przybysz (9-2) defend his KSW bantamweight title against Brazil’s Werlleson Martins (16-4) while two top Polish middleweights clash in the co-main event as former UFC fighter Pawel Pawak (19-4-1) faces Cezary Kęsik (13-1).
Elsewhere on the card, two of Europe’s top undefeated prospects Robert Ruchala (6-0) and Michele Baiano (7-0) meet and we will see an explosive collision between former KSW title contender Maciej Kazieczko (7-2) and France’s Wilson Varela (6-2).
