Adrian Granados Sparring with Adrian Broner in Preparation for December 6 Return at Chicago’s UIC Pavilion

In preparation for his next thrill-a-minute ring appearance, all-action junior welterweight contender Adrian “El Tigre” Granados is in Cincinnati, sparring with WBA World Welterweight Champion Adrien Broner.

Granados will be back on Friday, December 6, at the UIC Pavilion in Chicago on the undercard of Ulrich Knockout Promotions, Warriors Boxing and 8 Count Promotions’ world-class professional boxing event entitled “World Championship Boxing: Wlodarczyk vs. Fragomeni 3”.

Granados says he’s enjoying the fresh perspective he’s getting from training with Broner at The Punch House in Cincinnati, who is himself preparing for a fight against Marcos Maidana on December 14.

“It’s going great and I’m very happy to be here. I’m learning to deal with a different style and learning a different way of training. They do a lot of nonstop stuff. For instance, whenever we’re going to spar four rounds, we go 12 minutes straight. That’s pretty cool. It’s a marathon. All in all, just being in the ring with a world champion is a great learning experience.”

Tickets for “World Championship Boxing: Wlodarczyk vs. Fragomeni 3” are priced at VIP $201, VIP Ringside $151, Ringside $101, Box Mezzanine $76, Reserved Mezzanine $51, and General Admission $31 and can be purchased through Ticketmaster (Ticketmaster.com, 1-800-745-3000), the 8 Count Productions Offices: 312-226-5800 or the UIC Pavilion Box Office: 312-413-5740.

24-year-old Granados was last seen in August on Friday Night Fights in a heart-stopping knockdown fest against Mark Salser, which he eventually won by TKO 6.

“I’m definitely holding my own in every sparring session,” continued Granados. “I’ve worked with other world champs, David Diaz, Devon Alexander and Juan Manuel Marquez and I’ve held my own with each one of them. I feel I belong here.”

Granados’ opponent will be announced shortly.

In the night’s 12-round main event, WBC Cruiserweight Champion Krzysztof “Diablo” Wlodarczyk (48-2-1, 34 KOs) of Warsaw, Poland, will attempt to make the sixth defense of his title and complete an epic trilogy of fights with Milan, Italy’s former WBC Cruiserweight Champion Giacobbe “Gabibbo” Fragomeni (31-3-2, 12 KOs).
