KSW 32 results recap: Graham TKOs Pudzianowski

Check out the quick recap of Saturday night’s KSW 32 show from Wembley, England.


KSW ventured beyond the borders of their native Poland for the first time in their 11-year history to host an event at the Wembley Arena in London, England. The event showcased some interesting fights, a slew of Polish prospects - including a new light-heavyweight champion - and a headlining act that included the record-holding former World Strongest Man, Mariusz Pudzianowski.

The Polish contingency of fans was out in full force at Wembley, as they filled the arena with the boisterous chants for their fellow countrymen. However, despite their vocal support, they were unable to stop the anticlimactic conclusion to the evening when Pudzianowski was TKO'd by Peter Graham in the second round of the KSW 32 main event.

Pudzianowski spent the majority of the opening round laying on top of the Australian kickboxer and expended the majority of his energy in the process. Then, in shades of his loss to Tim Sylvia over five years ago, Graham was able to take Pudzian down in the second round and land a flurry of unanswered shots to force a referee stoppage.

In the co-main event of the evening, Borys Mankowski defended his welterweight title against veteran fighter Jesse Taylor with a guillotine choke submission in the opening round. He was the only champion on the card to retain his title, as light-heavyweight champ Goran Reljic suffered a KO loss to Polish prospect Tomasz Narkun

Top lightweight prospect Mateusz Gamrot extended his undefeated record with a TKO victory over Russian prospect Marif Piraev, while Maiquel Falcao knocked out Brett Cooper in less than a minute on the undercard.
