Granat, Milacic weigh-in for Saturday bouts
Adrian Granat (24) and Nikola Milacic (21) will step into the ring in separate bouts on July 11 in the Landkost Arena in Bestensee (near Berlin).
On Friday, one day before the boxing matches, the fighters went to Brandenburg for the scaling. The Swede Granat brought considerable body weight of 119.4 kg. His opponent, the Bosnian Haris Radmilovic brought 112.9 kilos. The fight in the heavyweight division is scheduled for 6 rounds.
“Adrian has performed very well under his coach Bülent Baser. The audience in Bestensee can look forward to a strong showing,” said the promoter of the EC-Boxing Erol Ceylan.
Adrian Granat has been preparing in Hamburg together with the WBA champion Ruslan Chagaev, who will defend his title on the same day in Magdeburg.
Nikola Milacic weighed 90.6 kg. His opponent Zeljko Bojic, who had also traveled from Bosnia-Herzegovina, weighed two kilograms less on the scales. The fight over six rounds will be held at cruiserweight (at 90.72 kg).
“Even Nikola has evolved. Physically he has and still lots of potential. With a height of 1.95 m, he will occupy a permanent place in the heavyweight division in a few years. Currently he lands exactly on the border between the cruiser and the heavyweight division,” said Ceylan.
The event is organized by the Berliner in Bestensee Wiking Box teams.
