Joey Gamache believes that WBA Intercontinental Middleweight Champion Patrick Nielsen (19-0, 9 KOs) is ready for the biggest challenge of his career – the September 7 showdown with top-ranked Polish contender Patrick “The Machine” Majewski (21-1, 13 KOs) at the Nordic Fight Night in Frederikshavn.
Gamache, a former two-time world champion with expert knowledge of the US and international boxing scene, knows all about Majewksi´s brilliant reputation across the Atlantic.
“Majewski is ranked in the top ten in the world. He is strong, durable and experienced with an impressive record,” Gamache said. “He is well-known in the Northeast of the US. He has regularly fought in casinos in Atlantic City, which is no small feat to accomplish. And he has spent a lot of time in Philadelphia. That is a rough area for boxers.
“This will definitely be the biggest and toughest fight of Patrick´s career. Majewski will bring out the best in him – and he will need his best to beat a fighter of this magnitude.”
Gamache is particularly impressed with Majewski´s work rate.
“Majewski has been nicknamed “The Machine” for a reason,” he stated. “It does not only tell you all about his work ethics but also about the way he fights. He throws a lot of punches. The closer he gets, the more punches he throws. He likes to attack and keeps a steady pace to break down his opponents, just like a machine.”
But Gamache is convinced that Nielsen will have the tools to destroy the machine.
“Patrick is looking sharper than ever,” Gamache said. “He has so much talent and he is getting better and better every day.
“He has had good sparring. We have just got an English guy over here and will soon bring in some more guys. Everything is right on, the sparring is looking very good. Patrick is composed, showing good basics, good defense and a good jab. I am happy with everything.”
In their first fight together, Nielsen stopped Crispulo Javier Andino in Aarhus in June.
“That was a very good fight,” Gamache said. “Patrick played good defense, had good composure, took his time and then broke Andino down. Patrick made it look easy, although Andino was no walk-over. He knocked him down and finished him off.
“Patrick is a humble kid, he´s a good, nice person outside the ring, but when he steps through the ropes, he turns into an animal. And he will need his great instincts to beat Majewski.”
