EC Boxing have in a pressrelease confirmed that the fight between IBF International heavyweight champion Adrian Granat (14-0) and Bogdan Dinu (16-0) is on for March 18 at the Baltic Hall in Malmoe (Sweden).
Newly crowned Swedish lightheavy king Sven Fornling (11-1), who like Granat hails from Malmoe is of course also on the bill and may make a defence of the title he won against Naim Terbunja. Finding a suitable challenger might be tricky though but there is one fighter that fits the bill and that is Oscar Ahlin. No deal yet though.
Yesterday was the final day for agreements for EBU lightheavy champ Robert Stieglitz's mandatory defence against Swede Erik Skoglund but the EBU won´t call for purse bids just yet. SES, representing Stieglitz and Sauerland, representing Skoglund, are reportedly still in negotiations.
It's been a long, long time since there was so much activity booked for the Nordic countries for the near future - one must go back around 15 years to find anything similar. Here´s how it looks:
