EC Boxing´s Swedish heavyweight prospect Adrian Granat (8-0) will face 40-year old British veteran Michael Sprott (42-24) on December 5th as part of the Culcay vs. Hogan show in Hamburg.
Granat is fresh out of sparring with Wladimir Klitschko, who this Saturday night Dusseldorf will defend his WBO/IBO/WBA/IBF world titles against Tyson Fury.
Sprott for years was a part of the Klitschko team of sparring partners. However, Sprott comes in from getting stopped by Anthony Joshua and Carlos Takam and his best days are far behind him.
Michael steps in for Russian Denis Bakhtov, who tested positive for a forbidden substance in June and is not yet cleared.
