Former Leicester City Star Marcin Wasilewski Turns Cage Fighter

Ex-Leicester ace Marcin Wasilewski has chosen to swap titles and become a cage fighter.

The Premier League winner spent four seasons with the Foxes, and played in the club's epic 2015-16 campaign.

Wasilewski, 40, retired from football earlier this month after three years with Wisla Krakow.

The Centre-back is a longtime mixed martial arts fan, and has attended numerous bouts in Poland.

He has now been tipped to fight fellow footballer, ex-Bolton and Hearts defender Blazej Augustyn.

Polish fight promoter Mateusz Borek said: “I know Marcin's sporting career is not yet over.

“I think one of the MMA organisations will convince him to enter the cage. I know that this has always been Marcin's dream.

“People have said it would be a good fight between him and Blazej Augustyn.”

Borek added: “I have respect for his entire career, and the way he overcame his fate.

“To rise up again after what an opponent did to him in the Belgian league deserves a world title.”
