Two huge fights have been confirmed for KSW’s debut show in the Czech Republic. KSW 79 will take place at the Home Credit Arena in Liberec on February 25.
The Czech Republic’s very own Viktor Pešta (18-8) will make his KSW debut against Poland’s Daniel Omielańczuk (26-13-1) in the co-main event of the evening.
Pešta comes into KSW after stints in both the UFC & PFL. The 32-year-old steps back into the heavyweight division and is excited by the opportunity.
"This is the beginning of a new era for me and I'm excited to get back into the heavyweight division and facing some of the toughest competition in the world in KSW,” said Pešta.
Also announced for KSW 79 is a heavyweight collision between two of Europe’s elite level strikers. Former Glory kickboxing heavyweights Arek Wrzosek (1-0) and Tomáš Možný (1-1), who fought already in kickboxing, now continue their rivalry in the MMA arena.
Wrzosek, a training partner to Alistair Overeem, is aiming to continue his amazing run which saw him beat Badr Hari in Glory and successfully make his KSW & MMA debut last year.
Možný originally made his MMA debut back in 2011 but has since rose to prominence in the international kickboxing scene with fights against Jahfarr Wilnis, Daniel Škvor, and a 2019 ‘Fight of the Year’ contest against Antonio Plazibat. The 31-year-old then made a successful return to MMA last year winning by KO in the main event of Real Fight Arena 4.
