He's got a fight coming up on 7/11/08 against Demetrice King. King's got 5 wins in a row coming into this fight as does Grant (but stretched over more years). Grants last fight against a meaningful (at the time) boxer was against Dominick Guinn. By the time the fight was stopped in the 7th Grant had been dropped 4 times. He's 35 years old now. Seems like ages ago when he was a young 26 year old struggling, but showing heart and potential, with Andrew Golota. It's been said now and it was said then that he was a good athlete, but not a good fighter. But at 6'7 and having shown the ability to rise from getting dropped early I thought that he was going to be something special. Prior to the Lennox Lewis fight I remember Lewis's camp saying that they wanted to fight Grant as early as this because he was still young and exploitable. I still thought that Grant would have put up a better showing against Lewis. Two rounds later he was done. I don't know what it is, but I feel bad for Michael Grant. Maybe it's just seeing potential in someone who lacks some of the essentials to make a prizefighter. Who still thinks, regardless of all of the set backs, that he can make a significant enough dent in the sport to be remembered. Who knows? Here's hoping for a good showing against King.
