Adrian Granat Has Two Fights Set; Sprott Faces Hammer on 3/18

By Per Ake Persson

EC Boxing´s big Swedish heavyweight Adrian Granat (10-0, 9KO) takes on even bigger Russian Evgeny Orlov (15-12-1) on February 19 in Paris in a scheduled six-rounder.

If all goes well Granat face another big heavyweight in Austrian Samir Kurtagic (12-8) on March 12, this time over eight n Levallois. Headlining that show is stablemate and reigning EBU lightheavy chamo Igor Michalkin (17-1) who defends the title against Patrick Bois (14-4-1). Bois steps in for Medhi Amar (32-4-2), who is sidelined with injury but is pencilled in to fight Michalkin April 30.

As far as former Granat victim Michael Sprott (42-25), stopped in one by the big Swede, he will return to action March 18 in Bucharest (Romania) and will take on Christian Hammer (18-4). Sprott has lost four of his last six, all by knockout. Hammer is 1-1 in 2015, after getting stopped by current heavyweight king Tyson Fury earlier in the year and then bouncing back with a decision victory over veteran Sherman Williams.
