NJ Boxing HOF


Scott Frank started boxing at the age of 16. He would fight different kids in the neighborhood, and 
people would pay money to see him fight. From there he went on to challenge tough kids from 
different high schools. Scott went to his first gym, Tony Ryles A.C., at the age of 17-1/2. From 
there he went to Cianci Street where Lou Duvaís gym was located. Lou Duva brought him under his 
wings of Chicky Ferrara, a well-known trainer from Gleasonís Gym in New York City. Under Chickyís 
training, Scott won the 1977 Open Class New Jersey Golden Gloves Heavyweight Championship, as well 
as the AAU Heavyweight Championship, scoring consecutive knockouts in both Tournaments. Scottís 
amateur record was 25-3. He also fought internationally against Ireland, Russia, Yugoslavia, 
Sweden, Denmark and Germany. In one of Scottís bouts he scored a 1st round KO over one of the top 
Russianís on Wide World of Sports. He went to Germany and defeated Peter Hussing of Germany, a 
former European Champion and three time Olympian who won a Bronze medal in the 1972, losing to the 
Great Teofilo Stevenson of Cuba in the Semi-finals. 

Scott turned professional on May 2, 1978. Less then five months later he beat former World 
Contender Chuck Wepner to become the New Jersey Heavyweight Champion. He went on to beat such 
standouts as Charles Harris, Rocky Casale and Ron Stander, who fought Joe Frazier for the World 
Title. He finally got a chance to box one of the top heavyweights in the world; #5 rated Renaldo 
Snipes in Atlantic City. After 10 hard fought rounds the decision was a draw. A year and a half 
later, Scott fought Larry Holmes for the Heavyweight Championship of the World. Although he was 
stopped after 5 rounds, Scott gave a good account of himself. He fought twice since the Holmes bout 
and his last bout a couple of years ago was against Derek Amos, who Scott stopped in the 5th round. 
Three months later, Amos fought World Contender Chris Byrd and it took Chris 9 rounds to stop Amos. 
Scott Frankís professional record was 22-1-1 with 17 KOís.
