KSW: Oleksandr Usyk’s former title rival Krzysztof Glowacki confirms MMA move and Colosseum debut

The Pole will share the KSW stage with former boxing heavyweight title challenger Artur Szpilka and five-time world strongest man Mariusz Pudzianowski.

Former WBO cruiserweight champion Krzysztof Glowacki confirmed he will swap the squared circle for the octagon this summer. 

The 36-year-old, who suffered a fourth-round knockout loss to Richard Riakporhe last January, will feature on KSW's Colosseum 2 show in June. 

The event, which will take place at the 58,000-capacity National Stadium in Warsaw, will see Glowacki lock horns with bare knuckle boxer Patryk Tolkaczewski.
Glowacki confirmed the news on social media, saying: "I know many of you suspected something for a long time. Today I officially confirm that I have joined the KSW family. I hope you will continue to support me."
The Pole enjoyed plenty of success during his 15-year career in the professional boxing ranks.

After powering his way through 24 opponents, Glowacki knocked out Marco Huck to claim the WBO cruiserweight crown in 2015.

A successful defence against Steve Cunningham followed, though Glowacki's progress was ultimately stopped by Oleksandr Usyk.
The current world heavyweight champion picked up a unanimous decision win over Glowacki to take his cruiserweight crown in Gdansk, Poland.
The Pole won his next five fights but suffered his second defeat in the semi-final of the World Boxing Super Series semi-final against Mairis Briedis.
Glowacki also suffered recent defeats against Britain's Lawrence Okolie and Riakporhe.
His attention now turns to the MMA world as he prepares to share the card with another former boxer in Artur Szpilka.

The former boxing heavyweight title contender will take on five-time world stongest man Mariusz Pudzianowski. 

Glowacki, on the other hand, will take on 28-year-old Patryk Tolkaczewski who made his name on the Polish bare knuckle boxing scene.
