Frenkel KOs Maccarinelli

By Karl Freitag

Frank Warren’s “Magnificent 7” card at the LG Arena in Birmingham, England on Saturday night produced seven magnificent KOs as none of the bouts went the distance.

Unbeaten Alexander Frenkel (23-0, 18 KOs) scored the most spectacular win of his career with a brutal knockout of European cruiserweight champion Enzo Maccarinelli (32-5, 25 KOs). Early on, Frenkel outboxed the former WBO world champion, who was looking to load up on every punch. Maccarinelli did his share of damage but the bout ended dramatically when a hard left hook by Frenkel floored Maccarinelli in round seven. The badly hurt Maccarinelli bravely beat the count, but Frenkel put him down to stay with his violent follow-up barrage. Time was 2:30. (more…)

“Maccarinelli is a former world champion and a good puncher, but he has a rather weak chin. Knowing Alexander´s power and his boxing skills, I think he will stop Maccarinelli after seven or eight rounds. Cleverly is a good young man with a good record but Karo has fought much tougher opponents than he has. Karo is more experienced and that will make the difference on Saturday night. I expect Karo to clinch a points victory.” (more…)
