Heavyweight Sherman "Tank" Williams (38-15-2) face Brazilian Mateus Roberto Osorio (9-2) in Aarhus, Denmark, December 3 in a scheduled eight-rounder. Promoters Brian Nielsen and Mogens Palle are nursing hopes of matching Williams (pictured above) against Evander Holyfield, now 54 years old in what would be a rematch of their fight back in 2011 that ended in a controversial No Contest with Williams ahead on points.
Sherman Williams against Evander Holyfield
Holyfield was contacted in the matter by a Danish paper and didn´t rule out a comeback under the right financial circumstances. Holyfield's last fight was in Denmark against Brian Nielsen back in 2011.
Also on the Aarhus bill is supermiddle prospect Daniel Heinze (5-0) who is in against Jose Hilton Dos Santos (36-17-1) also from Brazil and superlightweights Osama Hadifi (11-2) and Enock Poulsen (1-0) clash in an all Danish matchup.
Supermiddle Lolenga Mock tops as previously reported the bill and face Argentinan Ruben Eduardo Acosta.
It was offically on but now it is off: Tuomo Eronen will not, repeat not, face Guillaume Frenois December 15 in St Quentin for the IBF Int´l superfeather title. The official reason is weight problems - Eronen have mainly campaigned at featherweight and is viewed as too small for 130 lbs.
EC Boxing have announced that IBF Int'l heavyweight champion Adrian Granat (14-0, 13ko) will defend the title March 18 at home in Malmoe, Sweden. As for opponent there are ongoing negotiations with Romanian Bogdan Dinu (16-0, 12ko).
