The big boys weighed in today for tomorrow´s showdown at the G18 Hall in Hamburg for this Z! Promotion and EC Boxing co-promotion and here´s how it went.
Erkan Teper, 120,5 kg / 265,5 lbs vs Christian Hammer. 117.0 kg / 259 lbs with the vacant WBO Euro title at stake.
Franz Rill, 120,5 kg /265,5 lbs vs Adrian Granat, 112.4 / 248 lbs with Rill defending the IBF International title
Christan Lewandowski, 117,4 kg / 259 lbs vs Timur Stark (a/k/a Musafarov), 100,0 kg / 220,5 lbs
Granat; “ We have had a great training camp with lots of sparring sessions during the last couple of months. There has been a wide range of different sparring partners in our camp in Hamburg, which has been ideal for me. Every day entering the gym, I´ve just told trainer Baser – “Line em up” and then we have had some serious work done. I feel stronger than ever. I do not want to encourage betting, but don´t put your money on Rill in this fight. I just can´t see he can manage more than 8 rounds with me”
Adrian Granat is currently ranked as 40th on Boxrec after 13 fights and a win against Rill would take Adrian a big step forward towards the so called mix in the Heavyweight division.
Before his professional debut in 2013, Adrian Granat worked as an accountant in one of the world leading accounting firms.
Granat; “I always tell people; I can count – I`m good with numbers and I can fight. That is a really good combination if you want to make it in professional boxing”
