Gaston Vega (17-4, 6 KOs) believes he has gotten into the head of Patrick Nielsen (13-0, 7 KOs) ahead of the WBA Intercontinental Middleweight Title clash at the Nordic Fight Night in Frederikshavn on Saturday. The 28-year-old Argentinian wore a jersey with the words “The Nielsen Slayer” on his back during yesterday´s press conference in Copenhagen. “I think the Argentina shirt made him nervous,” Vega said after today´s press conference at Arena Nord in Frederikshavn. “That is good. It was my plan to make him nervous and unsettle him. I think I have succeeded, Patrick did not look into my eyes today. I will knock him out and take the title on Saturday.”

Nielsen remained cool as ice. “He has not gotten into my head,” he replied. “The only thing he has gotten himself into is even more trouble. I planned to take him down but now I will take him down hard. He will not leave Denmark with the belt because I will take it home to Copenhagen.”

Also facing the press today were 2008 Olympic gold medal winner James DeGale and former world title challenger Cristian Sanavia. They clash for DeGale´s European Super-Middleweight Title. “I am ready to defend my title on Saturday night,” DeGale said. “I am in great shape and I will defeat Sanavia.” The experienced Italian expects a hard fight. “He is young and talented but I am more experienced. I am very determined to win the European Title.”

 

In the third title fight of the night, Norwegian featherweight Andreas Evensen faces Willie “Big Bang” Casey for the WBA International Featherweight Title. “He is a strong opponent but I believe I have more power and stamina,” Evensen said. “It´s going to be a tough fight.” Said Casey: “My nickname is “Big Bang” because I use to knock my opponents out. I am confident I will beat Evensen.”

Promoter Nisse Sauerland is looking forward to an action-packed evening. “We have three title fights plus the very best of Nordic talent in the ring,” he said. “It will be a great night of boxing.”

 

Also in action will be Reda Zam Zam (vs. Bronislav Kubin), local hero Torben Keller (vs. Aliaksandr Abramenka), Erik Skoglund (vs. Alberto Antenucci) and Norwegian newcomer Simen Smaadal (vs. Pavel Staravoitau). Tickets are available at www.arenanord.dk . TV3+ will broadcast live from 21.00 – 01.00.

Swear I posted in this thread! Going mental.. Anyway, DeGale to TKO the midget in the later rounds hopefully. Just hope he has had a good training camp and his problems with Frank Warren haven't stopped him being 100% focused on the fight.
