Frenkel Could Face Fragomeni

It appears as if Alexander Frenkel, coming off of an impressive victory over Enzo Maccarinelli, will face Giacobbe Fragomeni on February 26, 2011 at Stechert Arena in Bamberg, Germany. Frenkel would defend his EBU European cruiserweight title.

Frenkel, who is from Ukriane and resides in Germany, is 23-0 with 18 knockouts. Maccarinelli, who he knocked out last September, was the most decorated opponent of Frenkel's career to this point.

Fragomeni (27-3-1, 11 KOs), a 41-year old from Italy, would be at a 4 inch and 16 year disadvantage. He has fought against top cruiserweight competition in recent years, including Krzysztof Wlodarczyk, Zsolt Erdei, and David Haye. Fragomeni is 0-3-1 against those three, with the lone draw coming against Wlodarcyk in 2009. The veteran does have two wins over undefeated prospects.

The title bout would be scheduled for 12 rounds.
