Maciej Gierszewski unbothered by change of opponents at BRAVE CF 58: 'I focus on myself'

'Magic Man' looking to extend current streak of knockout victories under the BRAVE CF banner.

Maciej Gierszewski (8-6) has been known for his knockout power, which has been in full showing for most of his BRAVE CF appearances. Since joining the promotion, "Magic Man" has won three fights, and all of those victories have come by way of KO.

After earning the biggest win of his career, back at BRAVE CF 50, when he took care of Felipe Silva in the first round, Gierszewski was all set to return against Mihail Kotruta. However, an injury to Kotruta meant Issa Isakov (6-2) stepped in. "Magic Man" guarantees the plan is (almost) the same: to knock his opponent out, but to enjoy the fight before.

"I'm not the type of fighter that studies my opponents," Gierszewski said. "I focus on myself, and on what I can bring to the cage. I'm not focused on my opponent. It's me, myself and him – and I focus on myself. The fans can expect a huge knockout this Saturday, but this time I'll try to be a bit more patient and try to enjoy before I knock him out."

Even though the opponent changed, Maciej's attitude hasn't. In fact, he's more motivated than ever to showcase his skills in a different setting as the one BRAVE CF 58 will provide as the first-ever BRAVE CF show in East Asia. During his time with the organization, Gierszewski has fought in England, Romania, Bahrain, and now will have the opportunity to fight in Korea.

"I am so excited to see and visit all these countries, and show my skills to people around the world," Gierszewski said. "I've been with several promotions, including some of the biggest ones, and now at BRAVE CF I can compare. I'm very happy at BRAVE CF. This is the best promotion I've ever worked with."

BRAVE CF 58 takes place in Incheon, Korea, on Saturday, in partnership with Monsterzym, and will feature a middleweight bout in the main event as Mzwandile Hlongwa takes on local superstar In Jae La. Korea will become the 11th Asian country and 26th overall nation to host a BRAVE CF show.
