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.

That grant/botha fight was actually a good scrap for a couple of 40 year olds. I think grant could pull this one out too. Takam beat botha but he still lost to gregory tony so i'm not so certain you…
