Let's fight!

In The Witcher, there are several quests that span the entire game. One of the most noteworthy is the Fistfight quest. A number of the fighters are based on real-world boxers and wrestlers. For example, Eric Esch aka Butterbean, Andrzej Gołota, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson.

At inns, taverns, and a cave in Chapter V, Γκέραλτ has an opportunity to challenge local pugilists, including the reigning champion, for gold or a chance at the "Title". You can fight most champions once only but everyone else is game for rematches. When betting against a fistfighter you can double the bet for maximum profit, but they will refuse to fight if you try to wager more than that.

Spoiler warning: Significant plot details follow.

Since winning is easy (see Fistfighting made easy), without further ado, the fighters are (in plot order):

Πρόλογος Πρόλογος (Kaer Morhen)[]

Eskel, fistfighting tutorial


  • This is a fistfighting tutorial which also starts the quest; there is no Title to be won.
  • Eskel can be found in or near the Armory on Kaer Morhen's second floor after you have skinned the Frightener, but he will not have anything to say until you have given Triss her potion.
  • You might miss talking to Eskel if, after giving Triss her potion, you tell her there is no time to waste (goes directly to funeral), or you talk to her or Vesemir about starting Leo's funeral.
  • The quest can also be started in Chapter I.

Fat Fred Tough fistfighter Weak fistfighter

Fat Fred

  • Fat Fred hangs out at the Inn in the Outskirts.
  • He will start the Fistfight quest if you did not get it during the prologue.
  • He would be happy to rearrange your face for a 25 oren(s) wager.
  • After winning, Γκέραλτ retains his wager and may choose one of the following prizes:

Other Fighters

Fat Fred is accompanied by several fistfighters, many willing to "kick your arse and make money doing it!."

Κεφάλαιο II Κεφάλαιο II (Συνοικία του Ναού)[]

Butter Bean

Butter Bean

Other Fighters

Butter Bean is accompanied by several fistfighters. Γκέραλτ also has a fistfight in the prison dungeon to secure his freedom (regardless of the outcome); the prisoner, "Muscleman", looks remarkably like Fat Fred.

Κεφάλαιο III Κεφάλαιο III (Εμπορικό Κέντρο)[]

Andrew Gablodda Hobbs Pankiera Bouncer at the House of the Night

Andrew Gablodda

Other Fighters

Andrew Gablodda is accompanied by several willing fistfighters. The bouncer at the House of the Queen of the Night will allow passage upstairs if beaten in a fistfight. Rozalind Pankiera's father, Hobbs, will allow access to his daughter's room (for Νταντέλιον's lute) if defeated in a fistfight. Fistfighting is one way past the guards of the Fisstech lab in the sewers.

Κεφάλαιο Iv Κεφάλαιο IV (Παραλίμνιο)[]

The Rock

The Rock

Other Fighters

It is truly amazing that Julian and Νταντέλιον can sleep at all given that boxing matches go on 24 hours a day, right next to their beds at the Εθνικό Πανδοχείο in Θολά Νερά. Quite a few professional fistfighters use the back room to work out apparently.

Κεφάλαιο V Κεφάλαιο V (Παλιά Βίζιμα)[]


Zdenek, the Champion

  • Zdenek is the reigning world champion. He is undefeated — well no one has beaten him twice in a row.
  • He can be found inside the southernmost refugee cave in the swamp cemetery.
  • At least he has the decency to keep his fistfights to the privacy of his own chamber in the cave.
  • Γκέραλτ must beat Zdenek twice in a row. To do so, he must meditate or exit/re-enter the cave.
  • If Γκέραλτ defeats Zdenek, he gets his tooth and becomes the new reigning world fistfighting champion. The quest is then completed.
  • After Zdenek is defeated, Γκέραλτ may come back later at any time for a friendly rematch. This is for fun only - there is no additional reward for defeating him more than twice.
