KSW 44: Tomasz Oswiecinski Takes On Erko Jun In What Could Be KSW’s Craziest Booking Yet
What happens when you lock a famous Polish actor inside a cage with a Bosnian bodybuilder? Well at KSW 44 we’re going to find out when Tomasz Oswiecinski takes on Erko Jun in Gdansk, Poland.
Jun, 27, is yet to compete professionally in MMA, but according to the biography on his website trained in contact sports:
“Erko Jun was only two years old when he and his parents had to flee their home, the modern day state of Bosnia and Herzegovina, as a result of the 1992 Bosnian War. The family traveled to Belgium and decided to start a new life in Antwerp. It didn’t take long before Erko started developing a love for contact sport a passion he shared with his father.
“A few years into his training, disaster struck: Erko was badly injured during a training session and lost all feeling in his right leg, from his knee to his toes. Six months of rehabilitation followed, including numerous fitness sessions. Medical staff warned him that he would never fully recover the use of his right leg. Not fazed by this message, Erko continued to exercise and fell in love with the sport of fitness.”
Jun will train for this fight at UFD in Dusseldorf, Germany alongside KSW fighters Roberto Soldic and David Zawada.
Since suffering that injury, Jun has gone on to be a big hit in the fitness world and has amassed a legion of fans across social media. Jun’s Instagram currently has 1 million followers, whilst his official Facebook page currently has 4.4 million likes.
Whether he can fight or not remains to be seen, but when inside the KSW cage on June 9 he’s going to be confronted by a man who knows what it’s like to put on the KSW gloves.
Oswiecinski made his professional MMA debut last year when he defeated “Popek” monster via TKO at KSW 41. The 45-year-old is a very well known famous actor in Poland and was famously confronted by Polish boxer Artur Szpilka inside the KSW cage after beating Popek last December.
Whilst that fight could take place down the line, Oswiecinski will take on Jun in what should be another interesting spectacle fight under the KSW banner.
The only other bout confirmed for KSW 44 so far is a heavyweight bout pitting former KSW heavyweight champion Karol Bedorf against former worlds strongest man Mariusz Pudzianowski.
