Germany's Alexander the great

    Alexander Frenkel is the new European Cruiserweight champion after a spectacular KO against former holder Enzo Maccarinelli in Birmingham.

    German fighter Frenkel, who has a Jewish father, was the underdog going into the bout but extended his unbeaten record to 23 with his 18th knockout, sending the Welshman crashing to the canvas with a vicious left hook in the seventh round.

    Maccarinelli beat the count only to be met by a flurry of brutal blows from the 25-year-old German and there was no way back.

    Maccarinelli had won the opening round but when the fight was stopped, Frenkel was well on top. Maccarinelli required treatment from ringside medics and needed oxygen as the 30-year-old was on the canvas for five minutes before leaving the ring.

    Frenkel said: "It was a tough fight against a very dangerous opponent."
