Frenkel Hopes to Stay Busy

In an interview with James Slater of East Side Boxing, cruiserweight Alexander Frenkel said he hopes "to fight again as soon as possible. Maybe November." Frenkel is coming off of a stunning seventh-round KO of former world champion Enzo Maccarinelli to take the European title earlier this month.

When asked whether he would like to fight for a world title, Frenkel explained, "If I got the chance to go for a world title, I would go for it, if my trainers okayed it." He added humbly, "But I know I need to learn much more, and to get much stronger. Fights with the best fighters will make me stronger and better."

The future seems to be bright for the undefeated 25-year old. Frenkel has consistently showed a propensity to knock out his opponent with one punch, usually with the same left hook that floored Maccarinelli. He also showed a good chin against the powerful Welshman. However, Frenkel believes he was losing on points at the time of the KO as the fight was in England, but he appears to understand that he needs to improve to reach the top of the sport.
