Grano-Brown rematch

The rematch between heavyweights Tony “TNT” Grano and Mark “Oak Tree” Brown headlines the March 12 pro boxing card, “Brace For Impact,” presented by Jimmy Burchfield’s Classic Sports and Entertainment, Inc. (CES), in Fox Theater at Foxwoods Resort Casino in Mashantucket, Conn. Brown (15-2, 7 KOs) overcame two knockdowns to stop Grano, fighting out of Hebron (CT), in the eighth round of their first bout in September 2008. Grano (16-1-1, 13 KOs), a 2005 U.S. National Championships winner and National Golden Gloves Tournament runner-up, has won two in a row since suffering his lone loss as a pro. The popular power-puncher is coming off of a sensational, nationally-televised knockout of previously-undefeated prospect Travis Kaufman (18-0) last September. Brown’s eight-fight win streak was snapped last June on a short-notice fight when he lost to world-title challenger Fred Oquendo. Tickets for “Brace For Impact,” priced at $40, $60 and $100, are available to purchase by calling 401.724.2253/2254.
