Mateusz Gamrot Bidding To Become A Two-Weight KSW Champion At KSW 46
KSW lightweight champion Mateusz Gamrot will look to become a two-weight champion at KSW 46 on Dec. 1 when he faces Kleber Koike Erbst for the vacant KSW feathertweight title.
The bout is yet to be officially announced, but sources close to MMANytt.com have confirmed the fight.
Gamrot (14-0 1NC) is unbeaten as a professional and won the KSW 155-pounds belt back in May 2016 when he defeated Mansour Barnaoui. The Pole has since defended his title four times with victories over Renato Gomes and Gregorz Szulakowski book ending his feud with Norman Parke where he first defeated the Northern Irishman and then fought him to a no contest at KSW 39. Gamrot will now make the move down to 145-pounds for the first time in his career to fight for the vacant title.
Erbst (24-4-1) is on a six fight win streak. The Japanese fighter won the KSW featherweight title back in May 2017 when he defeated the then champion Marcin Wrzosek at KSW 39: Coliseum. Erbst was then expected to defend the title against Artur Sowinski, but he failed to make weight and was stripped of the title. After going on to defeat Sowinski in a catchweight bout, Erbst was then expected to face Wrzosek again with the title on the line, but the Pole pulled out from the bout with an injury. Erbst went on to defeat replacement Marian Zió?kowski in another catchweight bout.
KSW 46 will take place on Dec. 1 and will be headlined by a rematch between Tomasz Narkun and Mamed Khalidov. The event will take place at the Arena Gliwice.
