Brian Nielsen Would Like To Fight Again After Surgery

Danish boxer Brian Nielsen hopes to fight on despite facing major surgery to replace both hips.

"I am well aware that I'm a very old man and it will soon be 'over and out'...but I'd like one or two more fights before it's all over," the 47-year-old heavyweight told Denmark's TV2 ahead of surgery planned for Wednesday.

"But it's not just me who decides, the family will also have something to say. I haven't discussed it with the doctors, it's not necessary."

Nielsen's last outing in the ring ended in a defeat by Evander Holyfield in May 2011 in Copenhagen in a WBF heavyweight title bout.

The Dane, who boasts a professional record of 64 wins in 67 fights, said he will know soon after his operation whether a comeback will be possible or not.

"If I'm not back on my feet after a month, it's over. But that's not how it'll be - I'll be up again after a week," Nielsen said.

'Super' Brian Nielsen, the boxing teddy bear - please retire- - Everytime I hear this guy speak, I don't understand a word he's saying (yes I speak Danish); when that happens you know it's time to call it a day.
