By Per Ake Persson

Alexander Frenkel's defense of the EBU cruiserweight title against Silvio Branco, that first was postponed and then set for July 22 in Civitavecchia, Italy, is now off completely. The EBU has subsequently removed the 44-year old Branco from the mandatory challenger position. OPI 2000, who promote Branco, confirms the fight is off but declined to give any reason for the cancellation.

However, Branco, a multiple world and European champ, is fighting a tuneup this coming weekend along with former WBC cruiserweight king Giacobbe Fragomeni and OPI 2000 plans to stage a fight between these two veterans in the fall - which financially is a much bigger fight for the Italian market, says Christian Cherchi.

As for Frenkel he´s wasted a long time training for a fight that was first postponed and then cancelled.

To be fair, despite awesome power, Enzo Mac was outboxing him for large chunks of their match and on his way to a points victory. Obviously Frenkel got the big KO, but he wasn't pounding him every round dominating the match. Still he is young and improving.

Poor Frenkel. He just might be the next big thing and he cannot seem to get back in the ring. His power is just plain awesome. Hope he returns soon and I'd love to see a fight with Marco Huck in a years time.
