Nielsen: The Chudinov Defeat Will Make Me Hungrier

 Patrick Nielsen (22-1, 11 KOs) was unable to complete his Moscow mission. The 23 year-old southpaw travelled to the Russian capital with the hope of capturing the interim WBA World Middleweight title from undefeated champion Dmitry Chudinov (13-0-2, 8 KOs). However after twelve rounds of action fought in front of a partisan crowd at the Mytishchi Arena the Dane found himself behind on all the judges’ scorecards.
 
‘’Tonight was not my night,’’ said Nielsen. ‘’I have no one to blame but myself. I was not committed enough in training and I now realise that I need to do a lot more in camp to become a champion. This defeat has made me hungrier and I promise that I will come back stronger.”
 
Said promoter Nisse Sauerland: ‘’It was a tough fight and Patrick had signs of success, but you could tell that he was not fit for the twelve rounds and that is disappointing. I hope that Patrick learns a lesson from this and dedicates himself in training. I still believe that a fit Patrick beats Chudinov. If he is willing to make the necessary changes we will certainly try to secure a rematch.’’
 
There was some Danish success in Moscow. Patrick’s younger brother Micki Nielsen improved to 14-0 with the third-round technical knockout of Igor Pylypenko. Having been down in each of the first two rounds, a left-hook to the body in the third proved too much for Pylypenko, whose corner threw in the towel to spare him any further punishment.
