Dmitry Chudinov-Patrick Nielsen Finalized For June 1

Negotiations are complete and contracts have been signed for Patrick Nielsen’s World title challenge. The Danish middleweight (22-0, 11 KOs) will travel to Moscow, Russia to face Dmitry Chudinov (12-0-2, 8 KOs) for the interim WBA World Championship at the Mytishchi Arena on June 1st.

‘’This is the opportunity I have been waiting for,’’ said Nielsen. ‘’I have been dreaming of becoming a World Champion since I was a kid and now my chance has come!

‘’Everything I have done so far in my career, all the fights, all the training, has been building up to this moment, so I won’t be leaving anything to chance. I will make sure I am in the best possible shape when I enter the ring. There is no way I will be coming home without the belt.’’ 

To realise his World title ambition, Nielsen, the current WBC Silver Middleweight Champion, must travel to Russia to take on the undefeated champion Dmitry Chudinov.

Despite being away from home the 23 year-old is confident that he has what it takes to become Denmark’s next World Champion.

''It makes no difference to me where the fight takes place,'' said Nielsen. ‘’Home or away, Denmark or Russia, I am still the best and I will prove that on June 1st in Moscow.''

Nielsen’s confidence is shared by his coach, former two-time World Champion, Joey Gamache.

‘’Sure Chudinov is a tough guy,’’ said Gamache. ‘’He is strong and he comes to fight but Patrick is the better boxer. For me Patrick has to be the favourite. He is young, he is hungry and he won’t let anything stand in his way.’’

Currently standing in his way is Dmitry ‘’Night Wolf’’ Chudinov, the 27 year-old defending champion from Serpukhov, Russia.

‘’Patrick is a strong opponent and I am expecting a tough challenge,’’ said Chudinov. ‘’But if he thinks he can come and take my title away from me he is mistaken. I have been training hard and will be in excellent condition on June 1st. I am predicting dark days for Patrick Nielsen in Moscow.''

Said promoter Nisse Sauerland: ‘’The fight is signed and sealed, so now its up to Patrick to deliver. Of course there is some risk involved in taking the fight in Moscow but this is too good an opportunity for us to pass up. We believe that Patrick is ready and that he will be returning to Denmark a World Champion.’’

Chudinov’s promoter Vladimir Hrunov, who is expecting a sell-out crowd inside the 9,000-capacity Mytishchi Arena, has said: ‘’We are very happy to have finalised the deal to bring Patrick Nielsen to Moscow. We have the utmost respect for Patrick. I am expecting a very tough and very even contest between two undefeated fighters.’’

[QUOTE=BattlingNelson;14484319]Yeah that's what I'm thinking as well. Maximizing sanctioning fees.[/QUOTE]Typical WBA crap. Props to Chudinov though.... i thought it was going to be Fletcher. His opponent list went from meh to pretty good. Mayorga to Fletcher to Nielsen

[QUOTE=Hougigo;14484206]It's a freaking interim... knowing the WBA though, if GGG/JCC Jr goes off, they'll upgrade GGG to super and make it for the regular[/QUOTE] Yeah that's what I'm thinking as well. Maximizing sanctioning fees.
