Konfrontacja Sztuk Walki heavyweight champion Philip De Fries will put his belt on the line against reigning 205-pound king Tomasz Narkun in the KSW 47 headliner.

The Polish promotion announced the matchup on Monday. KSW 47 takes place at Atlas Arena in Lodz, Poland on March 23 and will also see popular strongman Mariusz Pudzianowski square off against Olympic powerlifter Szymon Kolecki in another featured contest.

De Fries went 2-0 in 2018, capturing heavyweight gold with a first-round TKO of Michal Andryzak at KSW 43 before submitting Karol Bedorf at KSW 45 in his most recent appearance. The former UFC competitor has won four consecutive fights overall.

Narkun, meanwhile, scored a pair of wins against Mamed Khalidov last year, becoming the first man to defeat the former middleweight champion under the KSW banner. The 29-year-old known as “Giraffe” has won seven bouts in a row and sports a 16-2 career mark.
