Earlier this week it was announced that the biggest super fight in the modern Swedish history of boxing will take place on April 21st in Sundsvall – domestic heavyweight rivals Adrian Granat (15-1, 14 KOs) vs. Otto Wallin (19-0, 13 KOs) in the clash for the vacant EU-title. Today, Granat announced that his new head trainer is Johnathon Banks, the former trainer of Wladimir Klitschko.
Adrian Granat: I am honored to get the opportunity to work with Banks. I got to know him in 2015 when he and Dillian Whyte were in Hamburg preparing for the Joshua vs Whyte fight. We got along well and I was then invited to the Klitschko camp a couple of months later to do sparring for the upcoming Klitschko vs Fury fight. Banks is a great coach and I know I can learn a great deal from him. It is also exciting that this super fight against Wallin gets this much attention already now – it is really a great fight and the winner will then fight for the EBU title.
