Aleksandr ("Alex") Viktorovich Miroshnichenko (Russian: Александр Викторович Мирошниченко) (April 26, 1964 in Kostanai, Soviet Union – May 19, 2003) won a Super Heavyweight Bronze medal at 1988 Summer Olympics in Seoul for the Soviet Union. He lost a points decision against Riddick Bowe in the semi-finals, though he knocked him down twice.
Aside from his Olympic success, Miroshnichenko had a distinguished amateur career winning 210 out of 233 bouts. He medaled in the European Championships and the World Cup, and was a three-time Soviet champion. He trained at the Dynamo sports society.
Miroshnichenko turned pro in 1990 and had limited success. He began his career with 21 consecutive wins against limited competition, and was shockingly upset by Oleg Maskaev in 1993 in Maskaev's first pro fight, a TKO in the 3rd round. Miroshnichenko retired after the bout.
Miroshnichenko died in 2003, falling down nine flights of stairs in his hometown. Rumors initially surfaced that his death was related to his testimony in the trial of a local judge, but police later ruled his death accidental.
