Patrick Nielsen's Performance Impresses Evander Holyfield

Patrick Nielsen (9-0, 5 KOs) clinched the next victory on his way up the rankings on Saturday night when he outclassed Gary Boulden (4-2-2) at the TV2 Fight Night in Herning. Against his aggressive opponent, the 20-year-old Dane was in full control throughout as he won every single round on the judges´ scorecards. In the last round, Nielsen was on verge of stopping a badly-cut Boulden, who went down from a body shot but scrambled back to his feet. The scores were 80-71, 80-71, 80-71. “This was a big step up for me against a tough opponent,” Nielsen said. “He was very aggressive and came to fight so I am happy I gave my fans a good victory. It was the first time I fought eight rounds at three minutes so I am pleased.”

Both Brian Nielsen and Evander Holyfield, who clash on May 7 in Copenhagen, were ringside to watch the TV2 Fight Night. “Nielsen is a very good fighter,” the Real Deal lauded. “He is very intelligent and he has the potential to be champion if he trains hard and gets the right sparring.” After the fight, Holyfield met Nielsen backstage to give him some valuable advice. “He told me to improve my short combinations and use my legs more when throwing punches,” Nielsen said. “It was great to have him ringside.”

Holyfield said he “enjoyed the atmosphere and the fights” at Kongrescenter where the four Danish fighters clinched spectacular victories. Kasper Bruun knocked out Janos Vass in the first round with brutal body shots, while Kim Poulsen destroyed Ferenc Szabo in three rounds. Christian Bladt also clinched an exciting victory over Cliff Soukka, with WBA, WBC and WBO Female Welterweight Champion Cecilia Braekhus outpointing top-ranked challenger Jill Emery to defend her titles. German heavyweight Francesco Pianeta also continued his unbeaten run, stopping Ivica Perkovic in the second round.”
