Braekhus, Skoglund, Nielsen Ready For War on Sept. 22

On September 22 the Nordic Fight Night returns to the Arena Nord in Frederikshavn. Stepping into the ring are Cecilia Braekhus (20-0, 5 KOs), who will be defending her WBC/WBA and WBO Welterweight Titles, Patrick Nielsen (15-0, 8 KOs) who is putting his WBA Intercontinental Middleweight Belt on the line and Erik Skoglund (11-0, 6 KOs) who is looking to keep his perfect record alive. Also on the card: Torben Keller (4-0-1, 1 KO) and Ahmad Kaddour (25-2, 10 KOs). Both train alongside Nielsen and Skoglund at the same gym in Berlin, Germany, and are being coached by Torsten Schmitz. All of them are currently in intense preparations for their upcoming fights and are itching to get back into the ring after a summer break.

Braekhus is currently preparing for her strongest opponent to date, Anne Sophie Mathis (26-2, 22 KOs) from France. “Mathis will be the toughest challenge yet,” said the world champion. “She really is a knock-out queen and I will have to be extremely careful.” Although Mathis´ record speaks for itself and would probably cause most boxers sleepless nights, Braekhus is very confident in herself as well as her coach Ulli Wegner. “My training is going very well,” according to Braekhus. “The training camp in Kienbaum was good and we are already leaving for the next camp this Friday. My coach knows exactly what he is doing and we are completely dedicated to the task of defending my titles. There is no way I can lose with him on my side.”

Also getting back into the ring on September 22 are Patrick Nielsen and Erik Skoglund, both under the supervision of coach Karsten Roewer. And coach Roewer does not hold back his excitement when speaking about the strengths of these two promising youngsters. “They both are in great shape,” said the coach. “Patrick was with me in the USA and did really well over there and Eric did exactly what I asked him to do while I was gone. So I could not be happier.” One attribute he is particularly impressed with is the strength and power the two Scandinavians possess. “Patrick is always really aggressive in the ring and is always looking for a knock-out,” according to Roewer. “Eric has one of the strongest punches I have ever felt. He also has an ‘In your face’ attitude when he is inside the ring. But since he got injured during his fight against Volodymyr Borowskyy in Neubrandenburg in May 2011, he has learnt to contain himself a little bit more when it is necessary.”

It seems like Jose Yebes (11-2-1, 5 KOs), who takes on Nielsen, and Ricardo Marcello Ramallo (10-3, 9 KOs), Skoglunds opponent, will definitely have their work cut out for them when they meet in Frederikshavn on September 22.

The fans in Denmark will also be looking forward to see the two Norwegian prospects Simen Smaadal (2-0, 1 KO) and Alexander Hagen (pro debut) inside the ring at the Arena Nord.
