Kleber Koike Erbst to challenge for featherweight title at KSW 46
Japanese MMA veteran Kleber Koike Erbst will be looking to reclaim the KSW featherweight title in Gliwice tomorrow night. The 29 year old faces local favourite Mateusz Gamrot and will be looking to win a belt which he lost after missing weight ahead of his first ever defence.
Koike Erbst (24-4-1) has won 20 of his last 21 fights. He originally won the KSW 145lbs title by beating Marcin Wrzosek in 2017 but came in overweight for his rematch with Artur Sowiński a few months later and was stripped of the belt despite avenging his only loss since 2010 with a third round rear naked choke.
However the BJJ black belt from Japan faces a tough challenge against the undefeated Gamrot (14-0). The Polish fighter is the reigning KSW 155lbs champion and has decided to drop down to featherweight after effectively clearing out the division and running out of opponents.
The card also features a rematch between Polish light heavyweights Mamed Khalidov (34-5-2) and Tomasz Narkun (15-2).
