Patrick Nielsen's coach is confident that his boxer can handle the pressure of fighting in front of thousands of Russian fans when he meets Dmitry Chudinov for the interim WBA World Middleweight Championship in Moscow.
”For Patrick it doesn’t matter if he fights in Denmark or Russia. It’s a square ring no matter where you fight,” says two-time world champion Joey Gamache.
”Patrick is motivated and inspired to go into someone’s backyard and say; Hey, I’m going to beat you.”
Ahead of the fight against Dmitry Chudinov on June 1st in Mytishchi Arena Patrick Nielsen is preparing himself with his team in Torrevieja, Spain.
”Things are going very well. Patrick is getting excellent sparring from some tough guys. He’s working hard, looking sharp. You can see the excitement in his eyes. He’s pushing hard every day.
”Our focus is only on Chudinov, but we’re aware of how big an opportunity this is and we’re going to take advantage of that.”
“The fight is a really great match up between two exiting fighters. Lefty versus righty. Chudinov’s defensive tools will be tested against an unpredictable southpaw like Patrick.
”Chudinov is a solid fighter with a good amateur background. He doesn’t have Patrick’s experience on a professional level, but the guy is very capable. You know, he puts his punches well together, but there is no secret to how he fights.
Chudinov says he wants to win convincingly going for the knockout…
”Well, he has to build himself up, but he’s not going to knock out Patrick. Patrick hasn’t been down as a pro, Chudinov has.
“Patrick to me is the more explosive guy. Chudinov may be physically stronger. But I don’t see him as a one-punch knockout fighter. Patrick is the younger guy coming in. He has got the height, he has got the reach; whatever Chudinov offers Patrick offers better.”
Gamache: Anything Chudinov Offers, Nielsen is Better!
