Patrick Nielsen-Jose Pinzon Finalized For Nov. 16

WBA & WBO Intercontinental Middleweight Champion Patrick Nielsen (20-0, 9 KOs) will defend his titles against Jose Pinzon (24-5, 15 KOs) from Mexico on November 16. For the first time in his career, Nielsen will fight in Albertslund. Tickets for the Nordic Fight Night at Musikteatret have been selling fast. “To fight in Albertslund will be the biggest moment of my career and I will not allow Pinzon to spoil it,” he stated. “I have a lot of respect for him. Mexicans have a great boxing education and tradition. They are aggressive and tough, but so am I. There is no way he can beat me in front of my home fans. I´m in great shape already, I´ve trained hard with Joey Gamache, and I´m ready for a big night of boxing in my old hood!”
 
Pinzon, 26, travels to Copenhagen with a record of 24 victories and five losses, including 15 KOs. He is a former WBC Youth World Champion and WBC Interim Latino Champion. “Pinzon is a typical Mexican-styled ring warrior,” promoter Nisse Sauerland said. “He comes to fight. Patrick will need to be clever and use all of his ring craft to beat him. I expect a tough battle that will fascinate the fans in Albertslund. We expect a sell-out crowd and great atmosphere.”
 
Micki Nielsen, Rashid “The Dream” Kassem and Simen Smaadal will also be in action on November 16. More fights will be announced shortly. Tickets are available at billetnet.dk.
