Rudy Markussen, Patrick Nielsen Co-Headline on 9/3

Rudy Markussen and Patrick Nielsen will be headlining the fifth TV2 Fight Night in Herning on September 3. The “Hardhitter” will make his first fight in ten months after a neck injury has kept him on the sidelines. He will face an opponent to be announced shortly. “The TV2 Fight Night is delighted to welcome Rudy back,” promoter Nisse Sauerland said. “His last two fights have been very promising and I´m confident he will continue where he left it.”
 
Markussen (35-2, 22 KOs) last defeated Dejan Ribic in November 2010 (KO round 1) in his second fight after a lay-off of three-and-a-half years. His victories have not gone unnoticed in the boxing world, with the WBC currently ranking him as the number seven in their ratings. “I´m thrilled to be back,” Markussen said. “This is like my second comeback. It was a tough time for me. I was on such a good way and ready for big fights when the neck injury slowed me down. Everything is fine now and I´m ready to rumble again. I will put on a great show on September 3 which will put me in line for greater things.”
 
Also in action will be middleweight sensation Patrick Nielsen (10-0, 6 KOs), who locks horns with tough veteran Italian Gaetano Nespro (18-8, 2 KOs). “He is a very strong and very experienced opponent,” Nielsen said. “It will be another good experience for me. The fans in Herning have been fantastic and I will please them once again with a spectacular fight.”
 
Kasper Bruun and Kim Poulsen will also step into the ring in Herning. Their opponents will be announced shortly.

Great that Markussen returns after his car accident. The neckinjury he had was career-threatening. In a couple of fights he should be ready for a titlefight. Nielsen again gets a seasoned and durable opponent. It shall be interesting to see…
