On the Comeback Trail

Michael Grant celebrates his victory over Ahmed Abdin in 1999 in Atlantic City.

Former heavyweight contender and Chicago resident Michael Grant, returns to the ring on August 21 to face Tomasz Adamek. Grant has won his last 8 fights and will look for one more title shot if he beats Adamek.
These images were taken back in 1999 when I was working as a fight photographer for various clients. Grant fought and won 3 times that year to set up a shot at the title. In April of 2000, he fought champion Lennox Lewis but was KO’d in the second round. I worked directly with Michael while shooting for HBO in 2000 and he was great guy. It will be an exciting fight and I wish him well.

Grant also scored a 10th round TKO over Andrew Golota in 1999 in Atlantic City.

Lou Savarese landed some good rights but Grant won a 10 round decision at Madison Square Garden.

Grant used his jab to stop Abdin.
