Kessler-Bouadla Card: Patrick Nielsen, Gerber, Dirks

Team Sauerland is delighted to announce the details of an action-packed undercard prior to the comeback of WBC Super Middleweight World Champion Emeritus Mikkel Kessler (43-2, 32 KOs), who will return against Mehdi Bouadla (22-3, 10 KOs) at Parken on June 4. Up-and-coming middleweight sensation Patrick Nielsen (9-0, 5 KOs) will be looking to clinch his 10th victory in as many fights when he takes on experienced Englishman Joe Rea (7-4-1, 4 KOs) in an eight-rounder.

At light welterweight, Kasper Bruun (10-0, 3 KOs) will be looking to keep his unbeaten record with a victory over Jay Morris (14-18-2, 4 KOs). Also at light welterweight, Kim Poulsen (17-1, 4 KOs) comes face-to-face with Tarik Sahibeddine (12-8, 2 KOs). “Further to the Viking Warrior´s exciting comeback, we are thrilled to present the Danish fans the biggest talents of Danish boxing,” promoter Nisse Sauerland said. “This is the next challenge for them on the way to the top and I am sure they will master it.”

Also in action will be two unbeaten German talents. Heavyweight sensation Edmund Gerber (15-0, 10 KOs) will battle it out with experienced US veteran Zack Page (21-35, 7 KOs), while light heavyweight prospect Dustin Dirks (20-0, 14 KOs) clashes with Juan Nelongo (21-12-1, 9 KOs).

Zack Page will be a good test and provide valuable experience for Gerber. :fing02: Page is MUCH better than his record indicates. He's been robbed many times - most recently in his fight with Tom Dallas, according to the UK…
