Granit Shala (9-0, 3 Ko) will plan his future career together with AGON Sports & Events. The 24-year-old German with Albanian roots signed a multi-year contract. After Alexander Müller vom Berge, Shala is the second heavyweight addition to the Berlin boxing stable.
At the age of nine, Shala began boxing at Bavaria Landshut and played 65 fights for the club. He played for Straubing in the Bundesliga. As an amateur, he was German champion several times and defeated, among others, the WBC junior world champion Peter Kadiru.
In 2017 Shala switched to the professional camp. Since then, he has played nine fights, all of which he won, three of them prematurely.
“For me, AGON is a dream,” says Shala, “now I have a partner by my side with whom I can give my career the right direction. I want to get into the big fights, the big names. Everything else will then find itself. “
AGON’s sports manager Dr Strickrodt is happy about the new addition: “I have been watching Granit for a long time and I assume that he will soon be able to clear the first titles. It’s probably overused, but it’s true. His first name, granite, is synonymous with his striking hand. “
The 1.94 m tall and approx. 120 kg heavy colossus from Landshut will continue to be trained by his coach Agron Kurtisi at the Fight Power Academy in Unterschleißheim. The immediate preparation for the competition then takes place in the AGON Gym in Berlin. It is planned that Shala will make his stable debut in November.
