Desperate times calls for desperate measures! Universal Boxing Organization™ (UBO) World Heavyweight Champion Alexander Frank was supposed to defend his title later this month, but when the German government imposed a lock-down from December 16, quick changes had to be made.


So a hastily arranged defense against short-notice opponent Reinis Porozovz took place behind closed doors at the Knockout Arena in Gelsenkirchen, Germany on Tuesday December 15, paving the way for what could be described as a real life “Rocky Story”, with the Latvian getting an unexpected world title-shot.

And Porozovs did very well, making it a very competitive fight as he fought hard to cause the big upset. In fact he was ahead 48-47 on two of the scorecards after five rounds, the third had Frank ahead by 49-46, when he appeared to tire drastically and hurt his right hand.

In round six Frank seized his new-found momentum and put on the pressure, pummeling Porozovs and eventually forcing the challenger´s trainer to throw in the towel to save his brave boxer from further punishment.


Retaining the UBO World title for the fourth time, Frank improved his unbeaten record to 19-0-1 (16). Porozovs, who is a much better fighter than his record suggests and had won five of his last six outings going in, drops to 18-17-1 (11).
