Patrick Nielsen Blasts Out Tony Jeter in Two Rounds

By Per Ake Persson

Albertslund, Denmark - Middleweight Patrick Nielsen (22-0) delighted his fans by winning the vacant WBC Silver title with an all too easy second round knockout of Tony Jeter (16-4-1). Jeter was hurt by a southpaw left uppercut and retreated into the ropes where Nielsen opened up and Jeter went down on one knee where he was counted out by referee Hector Afu.
 
Jeter was also down seconds into the very first round but it appeared to be more of a slip. A right-left combination put the American on the floor again later in the round and this time it was a genuine knockdown. Jeter was also down at the end of the first time but this time he was wrestled to the canvas. The time of the knockout was 1.06.

Micki Nielsen (13-0, 10) won the vacant WBC Youth title at cruiser winning a wide unanimous decision over soft looking Georgian Gogita Gorgiladze (a dubious 17-4) over ten. The fight was off to a slow start and never really took off with the Dane - fighting in front of his hometown fans - working mainly with his southpaw jab. In the later rounds Nielsen rarely used his normally powerful left hand and that allowed Gorgitaladze to last the distance. It was scored 100-90, 100-91 and 99-91. Interviewed in the ring after the fight Nielsen confirmed he had hurt his left.

Danish middleweight Abdul Khattab (6-0) won a unanimous decision over six against Estonian Aleksei Tsatiashvili (5-6). It was scored 60-54 twice and 59-55. The stylish Khattab controlled the action almost all the way but appeared to be shaken in the fifth. Tsatiashvili came forward to follow up but walked onto a big right hook and was clearly hurt and retreated on legs that barely could hold him up but survived.

Norwegian lsuper middleweight Tim-Robin Lihaug (7-1) stepped in for his injured compatriot Simen Smaadal and outscored Croatian Marko Benzon (7-6) over six. It was scored 59-55 on all cards for Lihaug, who have improved a lot since Joey Gamache took over as trainer. Benzon fought a fight to survive but was dangerous with his counters and rattled "Timsalabim" in the fifth with a right uppercut.

The third Swede on the bill, super lightweight Anthony Yigit (9-0-1) outscored Brit Ryan Fields (2-2) over six fast paced, tough rounds of boxing. Fields, a late sub, was outboxed by his slick, southpaw opponent but kept coming and in the third it developed into an exciting brawl where Yigit´s better boxing gave him in the edge. Fields was cut by the right eye and tired visibly but kept trying and finished strongly in the sixth. It was scored 59-55 twice and 58-56 all for Yigit, an excellent boxer but tends to be a little too eager to show his talent. Full marks to Fields for trying and fighting every inch of the way.

Swedish heavyweight Otto Wallin (6-0, 4) stopped outclassed Czech trialhorse Ladislav Kovarik (10-16) in the fourth and final round. Kovarik soaked up a one-sided beating from Wallin but was never hurt. However, referee Soren Saugmann called a halt to fight at 1.52. Wallin was a lot more aggressive than in the past and showed good variety in his boxing and stung his durable opponent several times.

The Swedish Princess, super lightweight Klara Svensson (13-0) had no problems in disposing of inept Hungarian Veronika Hornyak (4-3) in a scheduled eight rounder (two minute rounds) that opened Sauerland Promotion´s show at the MusikTeatre, stopping her inept opponent at the bell ending the very first round. Hornyak was down twice. Svensson quickly realized she had nothing in front of her and went all out and quickly got to the Hungarian lady.

Patrick looked spectacular. Certainly looked ready for a titleshot later this year.
