Born and raised in Poland’s capital city of Warsaw, the Polish heavyweight Arkadiusz Wrzosek was obsessed with soccer as a small boy and harbored dreams of turning professional when he was older. 

The focus on soccer gradually gave way to martial arts though as he entered his teenage years and encountered action movies featuring the likes of Bruce Lee and Jean-Claude Van Damme. Their exploits sparked a desire in him to emulate them.

By coincidence a Muay Thai gym had opened in the south-central suburb of Warsaw where his family lived and so he was able to begin training. By the time he put on some gloves he was quite a late starter, already 19 years old, but he quickly showed proficiency and it was only a few months before he had his first amateur contest.

His amateur career commenced in 2012 and consisted of over 40 fights, most of which he won. From 2014-17 he was a member of the Polish national team, after which he elected to compete entirely on the professional circuit.

In 2018 he became the ISKA Poland Champion in the +95kg weight category. As an amateur, he won European and national championships with IFMA, the leading international organization for Muay Thai amateurs.

Coached by Andrei Molchanov of Belarus, himself a nine-time IFMA championships winner, Wrzosek today concentrates on kickboxing rather than Muay Thai because of the better prize money and opportunities it offers.
