Polish promotion Konfrontacja Sztuk Walki will offer up another intriguing bit of spectacle in its next event when it pits actor Tomasz Oswiecinski against fitness-model-turned-fighter Erko Jun on June 9.
A weight class for the KSW 44 pairing was not revealed in the release, but Oswiecinski competed at heavyweight in his mixed martial arts debut on Dec. 23. KSW 44 takes place at Ergo Arena in Gdansk, Poland and features a heavyweight showdown between strongman Mariusz Pudzianowski and former champ Karol Bedorf.
Oswiecinski, 45, has appeared in several Polish action films and also has a regular role on a soap opera in his home country. He made his MMA debut against rapper Pawel Mikolajuw – better known as “Popek Monster” – at KSW 41 and rallied for a technical knockout victory 2:58 into the second round.
Jun, a Bosnia native whose family moved to Belgium in 1992, will be making his MMA debut. The 27-year-old has accumulated more than 1 million Instagram followers thanks to a bodybuilding and fitness modeling career. According to the release, he has been training at the Germany-based gym UFD, which is also home to KSW talents such as Roberto Soldic, David Zawada, and Antun Racic.
