Patrick, Micki Nielsen Win: Torosyan Shocks Zam Zam

By Per Ake Persson

Aarhus, Denmark - Patrick Nielsen (19-0, 9KOs) retained his WBA Inter-Continental middleweight title with a fourth round knockout of Cispulo Javier Andino (16-6). Nielsen controlled the fight, winning all three rounds of all three of the official scorecards, and then he closed the show in the fourth.

Unheralded underdog Arman Torosyan, 9-0-1, stopped local hero Reda Zam Zam, 27-3, 1.37 into the seventh flooring him three times in the round. Zam Zam was up after six ahead by scores of 59-55 and 59-54 with a third card at 57-57. But Zam Zam was fading and again his chin and lack of punch resistance let him down. Referee Soren Saugmann gave Reda every chance to recover, including replacing the mouthpiece after the second knockdown when it should have been stopped, but the Danish veteran had nothing left and was floored a third time as well with no legs under him. It was scheduled for ten. Working Torosyan´s corner was former IBF middleweight champ Sebastian Sylvester assisted by Karsten Rover.

Rising cruiserweight prospect Micki Nielsen (9-0, 8KOs) continued his rise with a second roun dstoppage of battle tested Marko Angermann (11-18).

Danish jr. middleweight Torben Keller, 8-0-1, won a eight round unanimous decision over German Michael Schubov, 13-8. The three judges all had it 80-72 for Keller. Schubov had his moments though in an uneventful fight with few highlights.

Light heavyweight Erik Skoglund (17-0, 9KOs) won an eight round unanimous decision over Lorenzo Di Giacomo (41-8). All three judges had it 80-72.
Skoglund said afterwards he had hurt a finger in the right hand with the first punch he threw in the fight and believed it could be broken.

Norwegian light heavyweight Simen Smaadal, 6-0, outscored Artem Solomko from Belorus over six. It was scored 59-55 twice and 58-56 for Smaadal, who had some problems with his opponent early on. Solomko, 11-23-1, showed bad punch resistance though and was rattled whenever caught.

Talented Swedish welterweight Anthony Yigit, 4-0, outscored and outclassed Czech trialhorse Jan Balog, 4-15-1, over four in an all-southpaw clash. It was scored 40-36 on all cards.

Danish jr welterweight Rashid Kassem, 2-0, outscored experienced Belorus journeyman Andrei Staliarchuk over six but as hard as he tried he could never get his opponent in any kind of trouble. Staliarchuk, a good survivor, lost on scores of 60-53, 60-54 and 59-55.

Swedish heavyweight Otto Wallin made his pro debut by stopping Ukrainan Roman Cherney, 1-1, at 2.57 of the first of a scheduled four-rounder. Wallin, a southpaw, hurt his rather inept opponent with right-left combinations and kept punching until it was stopped. Cherney was never off his feet but took a beating.

SPAG´s (Sauerland Promotion AG) show at the NRGi Arena began with an all Danish matchup at cruiserweight between Peter Gram and Shahriyar Wiessi, both 1-0, coming in. Wiessi, the better boxer, appeared to be heading for win after an exciting, hard-fought fight when he nailed Gram in the fourth and final round with two good right handers but then Gram clipped Wiessi with a short right and Wiessi went down in what looked to be a flash knockdown. The rejuvenated Gram opened up and scored with another right and this time Shahriyar went down hard and it was stopped at 2.11.
