Michael Grant Will Face Carlos Takam on May 24th
By Per Ake Persson
WBFed heavyweight champ Michael Grant, 48-4, will defend the title on May 24 in Noisy le Grand, France, against Carlos Takam, from Cameroons but based in France.
Grant was at time regarded as maybe the next real thing but when he beat Frans Both in South Africa late 2011 with a come from behind knockout in the final round - it was in a fight he wasn´t supposed to win and he´s been inactive since then.
In Takam, 27-1, Grant face a strong but relatively untested challenger who´s best wins are over Frans Botha and Gbenga Oloukun while the sole loss came against Gregory Tony.

This is a good matchup between an up-and-comer and a veteran. :fing02:Comment by nycsmooth on 03-15-2013
