Trainer Howard Grant laces up the gloves for super-middleweight Librado Andrade who battles Vitali Tsypko in Montreal at The Bell Centre and on SHOWTIME CHAMPIONSHIP BOXING this Saturday. Grant was given a three month suspension for his part in the post-fight melee that followed Andrade’s last fight versus Lucian Bute and is expecting to be reinstated later this week, just in time for him to work two fight cards on Saturday. The Montreal trainer will get an early start to the day as heads to the Casino de Montreal for the GYM promoted card that gets under way at noon. Grant will work the corner of undefeated top-ten super-bantamweight Olivier Lontchi as he battles Cecilio Santos who has fought for world championships in three of his last four fights. From there it will be up the street to the Bell for the IBF elimination fight between Andrade and Tsypko.
