He has 26 fights on his account, 12 of which he won by knockout. In recent years, Mariusz has been on a fantastic wave of six wins in a row. At that time, he defeated such famous players as Łukasz Jurkowski or Michał Materla. In the last fight, which took place in December last year, Mariusz had to recognize the superiority of Mamed Khalidov in the cage. So now „Pudzian” will want to return to the path of victories and repeat his success from the first Colosseum event, during which he brutally smashed Tyberiusz Kowalczyk.
Artur Szpilka was a professional boxer. In 2016, he fighted for the WBC world champion belt in the royal weight category, and he has victories over such well-known boxers as: Tomasz Adamek, Mariusz Wach and Mike Mollo. „Szpila” is now walking through the world of MMA, but is only at the beginning of this difficult path. He has fought two fights so far in professional cages and won both. In January, he was supposed to fight again and face Arkadiusz Wrzosek at the XTB KSW 78 gala, but the injury eliminated him from this duel. Artur has returned to full health and is preparing for the biggest challenge in his career in mixed martial arts, the clash with Mariusz Pudzianowski.
