Groenteman Gets Rematch Against Tsirimokos

Junior welterweight Barry Groenteman will have a chance to avenge a loss last year against Vango "The Greek" Tsirimokos. The bout is scheduled for March 17 at Theater aan de Parade in Den Bosch, Netherlands.

On October 14 last year, the Belgium-resident, Tsirimokos took a close eight round decision over Groenteman. Since that bout, both men haven't had a lot of success. Vango took part in a tournament in Belgium about three weeks after the Groenteman fight. He won by unanimous decision in the semi-final, but was KOed in the second round of the final on the same day. He then was stopped in January against a debuting fighter. Tsirimokos is now 6-4 with 1 KO.

Groenteman (9-7-2, 2 KOs) lost to Hedi Slimani by decision last month in the only fight since the loss to Vango. Groenteman is looking to snap a two-fight losing streak. Despite his seven losses, Groenteman has shown a sturdier chin than has Vango. Barry has never been stopped during his pro career.

The bout is scheduled for six rounds. Groenteman has gone six or more rounds 13 times. Tsirimokos has gone at least as many rounds only four times.
