Groenteman to Face Slimani

Barry Groenteman is scheduled to face Hedi Slimani on January 25 at Langemark in West-Vlaanderen, Belgium. The bout is scheduled for eight rounds.

Groenteman (9-6-2, 2 KOs), from Amsterdam, has won two of his last fights although he is coming off of a close decision loss against Vango Tsirimokos in October. Groenteman is the naturally bigger man, fighting mostly at junior welterweight. Slimani has fought mostly as a lightweight.

Slimani (14-2, 8 KOs) is ten months younger and has fought eight fewer rounds than Groenteman. Slimani, a Tunisian who fights out of Belgium, has won six consecutive fights. He is 6-2 in fights against opponents with winning records.
