Alexander Dimitrenko is a professional heavyweight boxer. He was born on July 5, 1982 in Crimea, Ukraine. He began boxing at the age of 14 and at the age of 18 won the (2000) world junior boxing championship in the Unlimited weight division. He was immediately offered a deal by German promoter Klaus-Peter Kohl after his victory. Dimitrenko signed with Kohl's Universum promotion company and emigrated to Hamburg, Germany to begin his professional career.

He began his career on December 8, 2001 by scoring a 4th-round TKO against Marcus Johnson at the Arena Oberhausen in Oberhausen, Germany. On November 6, 2004, Dimitrenko faced the man who gave Wladimir Klitschko his first professional loss, Ross Puritty. By winning a 10 round decision over Puritty, Dimitrenko passed what was seen as his first real test.

In his most recent contest on May 3, 2008, Dimitrenko won in five rounds over Derric Rossy. The fight was stopped in the fifth round, giving Dimitrenko his fourth consecutive victory by T.K.O. and was the sixth title defense of his WBO Inter-Continental Heavyweight belt.

Dimitrenko resides in Hamburg, Germany and is trained by Klitschko-brother trainer Fritz Sdunek[1]. Current rankings list Dimitrenko as the number two contender for the WBO World Heavyweight title, which is held by Wladimir Klitschko[2].
