Khalidov vs. Karaoglu and Pudzianowski vs. Rozalski announced for KSW 35

Poland's top promotion announced Khalidov vs. Karaoglu and Pudzianowski vs. Rozalski for KSW 35 in Gdansk, Poland.


Following a successful start to 2016 in Warsaw last week with three title fights at KSW 34, the promotion announced a series of entertaining fights for their upcoming show in May.

During the live broadcast, the Polish promotion confirmed that middleweight champion Mamed Khalidov will defend his title against Germany's Aziz Karaoglu. The event will also feature a co-main event heavyweight bout between Mariusz Pudzianowski and Polish legend Marcin Rozalski. The event will also include a rematch between Kendall Grove and former middleweight title holder Michal Materla.

Khalidov was crowned the first two-division champ in KSW history when he defeated Materla in a little over 30 seconds at KSW 33. His flying knee TKO victory was just the latest in his resume of exciting finishes and he will look to add another one to his record when he challenges the renowned power-puncher Karaoglu. The German is coming off a rapid KO victory against Maiquel Falcao.

Pudzianowski had his win streak snapped at KSW 32 in London when he suffered a TKO loss to Peter Graham in the evening's main event. He will look to rebound with a victory over one of Poland's most endearing fighters in Rozalski.

KSW 35 takes place May 28 at the Ergo Arena in Gdansk, Poland.
