Marcin Tybura explains why owes Jairzinho Rozenstruik a match

“The thing is that I owe it a little bit to Jairzinho because our fight was scheduled a year ago or so, and I had to reschedule it, and then I pulled out from the fight because I had some health issues.

So that’s maybe the fight I will have to do. I didn’t bring any name because I really just wanted to focus on this one and get back in the win column, so right now I don’t have anyone in my mind, but anyone in the top 10 would be great. Right now it’s more like a celebration, and that’s it”.
