Frank Shabani[a] (born 10 March 1982 in Pristina, SFR Yugoslavia) is a German professional welterweight boxer with Kosovar-Albanian heritage. Trained by German trainer Otto Ramin at Sauerland BoxPromotion Club, Shabani is fighting out of Berlin. With an impressive pro-career record, he is regarded is a promising fighter who is expected to be fought for a belt bout in near future.[3]

Career

Shabani had started boxing in 1996 in Berlin, when he was 14 years-old.[4] With his amateur record, consisting 90 fights (75 wins, 5 draws and 10 losses), Shabani switched himself into professional boxing with his debut-victory against Belgian-Tunisian boxer Saber Gasmi in 4 November 2006. After just four days of his debut, he had another fight against Dutch fighter Hassan Ait-Bassou in which he won the 4-rounded-fight on points. He had achieved his first knock out victory against Croatian Edin Kavara at Universal Hall, Mitte, Berlin in 17 February 2007 as his fourth consecutive victory.

In 29 March 2008, he fought Travis Hartman, his second American opponent in his pro career after Clint McNeil, whom could not continue to the fight after an unintentional head-butt of Shabani at round 4. The bout was ended by a No-contest verdict. In 28 February 2009, Shabani knocked out Italian boxer Giammario Grasselini at round 3 in Jahnsportforum, Neubrandenburg.[5]

Despite being the favourite side[6] Shabani faced his first defeat up against Leonard Bundu, another Italian boxer in EBU-EU title bout with an unanimous decision. He had his second loss, as he retired the match on fifth round against Russian fighter Zaurbek Baysangurov, former two times Amateur Juniors Championship bronze medalist, in WBA Inter-Continental light middleweight title, in Zaporozhye, Ukraine in 19 December 2009.[7]
