Andreas Kraniotakes Receives Approval from Commission, Faces Tim Sylvia at Pro Elite 2

October 27, 2011

It’s been a crazy 24-hours for Pro Elite as they get closer to their next show on Nov 5 in Illinois.

As of Wednesday, the Illinois State Professional Boxing Board had not approved Andreas Kraniotakes for his scheduled fight against former UFC champion Tim Sylvia.

Now it appears the commission has changed their minds and will allow Kraniotakes to participate in the fight, and he will remain in the main event for Pro Elite 2 next weekend.

Sources close to the promotion confirmed Kraniotakes participation in the bout to on Thursday.

With a 12-4 record overall, Kraniotakes seemingly had plenty of experience to be considered for the bout with Sylvia, and now he will get the chance to prove that.

Pro Elite 2 can be seen live on HDNet on Nov. 5 from Moline, Ill.
