Record-breaking KSW champion Phil De Fries wants a cold beer, and his next bout agreement

KSW heavyweight champion Phil De Fries retained his title at KSW 57, then announced his plan to celebrate with a cold beer or two.

De Fries (19-6) became KSW’s most dominant heavyweight champion in the Polish promotion’s history with a second-round TKO finish of Michal Kita (20-12-1) in Lodz, Poland, then said he’s ready to take on all comers in 2021.

De Fries’ win saw him register his fourth defense of the KSW heavyweight title and, after his victory, he told KSW commentator Dominik Durniat that he wanted to make amends after a lackluster display in his previous title defense against Luis Henrique at KSW 50 in September 2019.

“I was upset about my last one, that performance was terrible,” he explained after his victory. “I promised to put on a good show. I’m so tired, I wanted to put everything out there. Michal’s a fantastic opponent. Thank you everybody! … It feels great. Winning always feels good. And when you’re keeping the belt, it’s even better.”

And when asked what’s next for him, the 34-year-old from Sunderland replied with his mind on two things, his next bout and his next beer.

“Beers! Beers next, then we’ll see who wants to get this next,” he grinned.
