Meet Spadafora’s Next Opponent, Rob Frankel

Up next for Paul Spadafora is Red Hot Rob Frankel! Coming off his recent victory over Olympian Solomon Egberime, Spadafora originally wanted the fight to be against the WBC lightweight king, Adrien Broner. Broner is also currently undefeated sitting with a record of 26-0 with 22 KnockOuts. This would be a great fight to watch as two undefeated fighters go head-to-head in the ring. For now though, The Pittsburgh Kid Paul Spadafora (47-0-1) is focusing on his next opponent as he returns to the ring to take Red Hot Rob Frankel (32/12/1). Spadafora vs. Frankel takes place at the Harv at the Mountaineer Casino, Racetrack & Resort in West Virginia on April 6th, 2013.

Meet Red Hot Rob Frankel:

Red Hot Rob Frankel currently has a record of 32 (KO 6)/12 (KO3)/1 and is fighting out of Denver, Colorado. Frankel is noted as being strong, quick and focused, with a boxing spirit that dominates the ring. He holds the WBC/USNBC junior welterweight champion, GBU Champion title and WBA Jr. World Title.

Rob says that boxing saved his life. Growing up in metro Denver, life happened quickly and he entered the world of drinking, drugs and smoking early. When someone offered to sell him tickets to a fight one night, he replied, “I don’t want tickets, I want to fight.” Two days later, after finishing a cigarette (he smoked a pack a day at the time) got up in the ring for the first time and 30 seconds later, lost the fight. He didn’t like the feeling of losing and began training. Winning all of the next six fights, Rob jumped the ranks quickly. As he trained and became more committed to his craft, Rob began his road to health. Today, Red Hot Rob is active and dedicated to speaking to youth, hoping to inspire them and be a good example.
