Frenkel Has New Date and Opponent

Alexander Frenkel is now scheduled to fight on February 12 at the RWE Rhein-Ruhr Sporthalle in Mülheim an der Ruhr, Germany. He's penciled in to defend his EBU European cruiserweight title against Zakaria Azzouzi in a 12 round bout.

Frenkel (23-0, 18 KOs) is coming off of an impressive knockout of Enzo Maccarinelli for the European belt. Azzouzi, a 25 year old France resident, comes in with a record of 12-1-2 with 9 KOs. He's 1-1-1 in his last three fights, including a loss to Rachid El Hadak (21-8-1, 7 KOs) last March.

Azzouzi then mustered a majority draw against Tomasz Hutkowski, who was 18-0 when they met, last September. Azzouzi's last fight was a decision win over Arturs Kulikauskis (7-6-1, 4 KOs) last month.

Frenkel-Azzouzi is scheduled to be on the undercard of Yoan Pablo Hernandez-Steve Herelius. Arthur Abraham is also scheduled to be on the card in a non-Super Six bout.
