Konfrontacja Sztuk Walki has booked a showdown between a rapper and a fitness model for its Oct. 6 event in London.
The Polish promotion announced Monday that Pawel Mikolajuw — the rapper better known as “Popek Monster” — will square off against social media fitness sensation Erko Jun at KSW 45. The event takes place at SSE Arena in London and features a heavyweight title clash between Philip De Fries and Karol Bedorf. Additionally, Dricus Du Plessis will defend his welterweight crown against Roberto Soldic, and the opening round of KSW’s middleweight tournament will begin with a pair of semifinal bouts.
“Popek Monster” last competed in December, losing to movie star Tomasz Oswiecinski via second-round technical knockout at KSW 41. According to a release, he has since had a stint on the Polish version of “Dancing with the Stars,” where he made it to the “latter stages” of the competition. The 39-year-old Warsaw native is 3-3 over the course of his career, with all of his fights ending inside two rounds.
Jun, meanwhile, has more than 1 million Instagram followers due to his bodybuilding career. Jun made a successful MMA debut in June, knocking out the aforementioned Oswiecinski in the opening stanza at KSW 44. Jun trains out of the UFD gym in Germany alongside the likes of Soldic, Martin Zwada and Antun Racic.
