Patrick Nielsen (23-1, 12 KOs) and Rudy Markussen (38-3, 25 KOs) both made weight today in Frederikshavn, Denmark ahead of their Collision Course clashes on Saturday night at the Arena Nord.


 
With a Danish mega-fight on the horizon, the bitter rivals face their final test ahead of a blockbuster showdown later this year.

‘’I’m looking forward to getting in the ring again,’’ said Nielsen. ‘’People can expect an explosive performance. I want to be more aggressive than in my last fight against Adamu. I feel stronger and I’m definitely hitting harder, so I’m going to try to stop Barbosa. I’m not thinking about Rudy, right now it is all about beating Barbosa.’’

This is a chance to show everybody that I'm back. I can’t wait to get in the ring and hear the fans scream my name.’’
