Patrick Nielsen To Defend His Title Against Patrick Mendy

WBA Intercontinental Middleweight Champion Patrick Nielsen (17-0, 8 KOs) will take on Patrick Mendy (14-5, 1 KO) at the Nordic Fight Night in Esbjerg on February 9.  The “Tiger”, as he is known to his fans in the UK, made himself a name in 2010 when he became the youngest-ever winner of the popular Prizefighter tournament.  Two years later, he boasts a record of 14 wins and five defeats. “I am coming to Denmark to destroy Nielsen,” he said. “I am Patrick “The Tiger” Mendy, I will cut Nielsen everywhere and leave my mark on his face!”

Nielsen has laughed off Mendy`s fight talk. “I have heard a lot of rubbish from my opponents before fights,” he said. “This one guy, Gaston Vega, even wore a slayer-shirt at the press conference. At the end of the day, it was always them in the dust, not me. It will be the same with Mendy. He´s going down, like all of my opponents before him.”

Neither Nielsen nor Mendy will have a peaceful Christmas time. “Right now Micki and I are training in Denmark, we are working extremely hard. We will stay in Copenhagen until the new year and then go to training camp in Guestrow. We will have a little Christmas party with our family but unfortunately I can´t touch all the delicious food. I need to be in perfect shape in Esbjerg because I want to give the fans at Blue Water Dokken a very special fight.”

Mendy said: “There will be no Christmas for me, I only train, that´s what fighters do, train all the time. This is a very important fight for me, I am coming to take Nielsen´s title and that is what I am training for.”

Promoter Nisse Sauerland is excited about the clash. “I think this will be a very interesting fight. They are young, a 21-year-old versus a 22-year-old, they are hot-blooded, they have both enjoyed some early success in their careers and once the bell goes I am sure they will jump at each other. It will be an exciting main event for the Nordic Fight Night at Blue Water Dokken.”

More fights will be announced shortly. Norwegian Featherweight Andreas Evensen (17-2-1, 6 KOs) will challenge European Champion Alexander Miskirtchian (21-2-1, 7 KOs). Tickets for the first Nordic Fight Night of 2013 are available at billetten.dk.
