KSW 42 was headlined last week by a champion-vs.-champion showdown, and what a barnburner of a fight it was.
The event took place March 3 at Atlas Arena in Lodz, Poland.
In the headliner, light heavyweight champ Tomasz Narkun (15-2) met middleweight titleholder Mamed Khalidov (34-5-2) in a non-title 205-pound bout. Early on, things weren’t going well for Narkun, who suffered two knockdowns in the opening frame. But Khalidov began to fade after an action-packed first round, eventually leading to a fight-ending triangle choke for Narkun.
The loss was Khalidov’s first since 2010 and snapped a 15-fight unbeaten streak. Narkun, meanwhile, has won five straight and has 15 stoppages in 15 career wins.
