FEN’s next event is looking for a new headliner after one half of the main event had to withdraw.
Polish light heavyweight, Marcin Wojcik, is out of his FEN light heavyweight title fight against fellow Pole, Adam Kowalski, which was expected to headline FEN 29 slated for August 22. A reason for the withdrawal was not revealed. The promotion’s president, Pawel Jozwiak, confirmed the news to Euro MMA Hub and as of yet, no replacement has been named for the event in Ostroda, Poland.
Wojcik (13-7) is a veteran of the European circuit having fought for KSW, Cage Warriors and FEN during his 20 fight career. The 30-year-old initially made his FEN debut back in 2015, going 2-0 before joining KSW. After an unsuccessful run at the KSW belt and stints with Cage Warriors and Gladiator Arena, ‘The Giant’ returned to FEN last month. Wojcik defeated Rafal Kijanczuk at FEN 28 by second round TKO.
Kowalski (12-5-1) has earned his first professional title shot at the age of 37, and has won his last three bouts, two of which have come under the FEN banner. Wins over Rafal Kijanczuk and Wojciech Janusz gave the Pole this upcoming opportunity at the vacant title, and he previously shared the cage with UFC fighters, Bartosz Fabinski and Alessio Di Chirico, amongst his past opponents.
FEN 29 also features the return of former featherweight champion, Adrian Zielinski, while Marcin Naruszczka is also set to fight on the undercard.
