Aleksandr "Alex" Viktorovich Miroshnichenko (Russian: Александр Викторович Мирошниченко; 26 April 1964 – 19 May 2003) was a Russian professional boxer. As an amateur he represented the Soviet Union at the 1988 Summer Olympics, winning a bronze medal in the super-heavyweight division. His other accomplishments included silver at the 1989 World Championships, as well as bronze at the 1983 and 1989 European Championships.

Amateur career[edit]

Aside from his Olympic success, Miroshnichenko had a distinguished amateur career, winning 210 out of 233 bouts, including a win over future world heavyweight champion Lennox Lewis. He won medals in the European Championships and the World Cup, and was a three-time Soviet champion. He trained at the Dynamo sports society.

Professional career[edit]

Miroshnichenko turned pro in 1990 and had limited success. He began his career with 21 consecutive wins against limited competition, and was upset by Oleg Maskaev in 1993 in Maskaev's first pro fight, a TKO in the 3rd round. Miroshnichenko retired after the bout.

Death[edit]

Miroshnichenko died in 2003, after falling down nine flights of stairs in his hometown. Rumours initially surfaced that his death was related to his testimony in the trial of a local judge, but police later ruled his death as accidental.
