Undefeated Universal Boxing Organization™ (UBO) World Heavyweight Champion Alexander Frank from Germany (18-0-1, 15 KOs), was born in Semipalatinsk, Kazakhstan in January of 1986.


When he turned professional in March of 2014, his older brother Jurij Frank (13-4, 12 KOs), a massive man appropriately nicknamed “The Giant” at 217 cm. and often above 130 kg., had already been a pro for over four years.

Ironically, younger brother Ivan is also quite a lot bigger than Alexander, who is not a big heavyweight at 180 cm. And approximately 100 kg., so the champ is actually the smallest sibling in the family.

Alexander had his first two paid outings at the Olympic Sport Complex in Minsk, Belarus, but soon shifted his base to Germany where he has fought exclusively since, except for one bout in Ukraine.


Residing in Iserlohn, near Dusseldorf, he is trained by veteran coach Shamil Kerimov at the Taifun Boxclub in Weissenfels, where he relocates to for training-camp before each fight.

Almost exactly four years after his pro debut, Frank had compiled a record of 14-0-1 when he stopped former UBO European Champion Zoltan Petranyi from Hungary in the first round to claim the vacant UBO world title in September of 2018 in Ukraine.

He has since made three successful title-defenses, stopping former IBO world title-challenger Roman Golovashchenko, Tino Froehlich, and Golovashchenko again, in five, one and five rounds respectively.

When the Covid-19 pandemic hit the world, Frank was in preparation for another defense, and is now hoping things will soon clear up so he can focus on a new challenger.
