Granat: After Dimitrenko - I Want Breazeale, Whyte, Luis Ortiz

By EC Boxing

The interest for professional boxing is growing in Sweden since the prohibition from 1970 newly was repealed. Sweden today has many boxers that are climbing the world rankings.

Sweden's and Scandinavia's top heavyweight today is Adrian Granat, 14-0, 13 KOs.

Less than three weeks now remaining until the showdown between Granat and Alexander Dimitrenko - a fight that more often now is described as the biggest fight taking place in Sweden since the 70s. The two fighters are very close on the WBC’s world ranking; Granat is no 22 and Dimitrenko no 24. A victory by Granat will have a serious impact for his career. In fact, a win will most likely place Granat in the top 15 in many of the big organizations, meaning that Granat could fight for the world title already in his next fight.


Promotor Erol Ceylan: "We are very happy to take this kind of top heavyweight boxing to Sweden, a country that for a long time was one among very few countries in the world that prohibited professional boxing (alongside Norway, Jemen, Cuba and Iran). Dimitrenko is rated no 24. Granat no 22 on WBC."

Adrian Granat is feeling stronger and sharper than ever- much due to his new coach for strength and condition, coach Seyit Ali Shobeiri.

Granat: "I feel very strong and very tough - ready for anyone. Dimitrenko will be the toughest fight in my career. He is very skilled and experienced. But I regard myself as being on another level. This is gonna be a good heavyweight fight."

And Adrian Granat is not trying to hide that he wants to fight "the top ten" after Dimitrenko.

Granat: "Obviously I don't wanna look past Dimitrenko too much. But if I take care of business in this fight I wanna fight guys like Dominic Breazeale, Dillian Whyte, Luis Ortiz, Lucas Browne or Joseph Parker next. Those type of guys. Once I have proven myself on that level, I'm ready to fight the very best, that is Klitschko, Wilder and Joshua.

The fight is being broadcasted live on Swedish and Russian TV.

Whyte is such a handy fighter for Hearn to have. Dude is like a canary in a mine. Hearn can put him in with these kind of guys that he'd not really want to put in with Joshua because they…

He has explosive power, he'd probably be favored to beat Whyte, 50/50 against Breazeale, and he's an underdog against Ortiz

LOL... Dillian "tarkin rubbish" Whyte goes through him. Ortiz damn near kills him Even Breazeale probably takes some on the chin before knockin him out with the overhead man titty slap
