Rising Danish middleweight star Patrick Nielsen (13-0, 7 KOs) has vowed to make Gaston Vega (17-4, 6 KOs) pay for presenting a “disgusting” shirt at Wednesday´s pre-fight press conference. Facing the media in Denmark´s capital Copenhagen, the 28-year-old wore a jersey of the Argentinian national team, with the number 11 and the words “The Nielsen Slayer” on his back. “I am proud to be Argentinian and I will take home the WBA Intercontinental Middleweight Title on Saturday night,” Vega said. “This is a big title. To get it, I will defeat Nielsen in the 11th round. I am wearing this shirt to state my intentions. I will knock him out.”

Nielsen is fired up to get his hands on his opponent. “I don´t think he should be wearing something like that,” Nielsen said. “I find it very inappropriate and disgusting. I can´t wait to get in the ring with him and make him pay. I am in great shape and I will give him a hell of a beating.”

Promoter Nisse Sauerland is expecting a spectacular evening at the Arena Nord in Frederikshavn. “We are moving Patrick Nielsen fast but we believe in him,” he said. “Winning the WBA Intercontinental Middleweight Title at the age of just 21 would be huge. But Vega is a tough opponent. It will be a great fight and I am confident that Patrick will win.”

In the Nordic Fight Night´s co-featured main event, European Super-Middleweight Champion James DeGale (11-1, 8 KOs) defends his title against Christian Sanavia (45-5, 13 KOs), while Andreas Evensen (15-2, 6 KOs) faces Willie “Big Bang” Casey (13-1, 9 KOs) for the WBA International Featherweight Title.
