Vega Feels Patrick Nielsen Has No Chance in WBA Bout

Argentinian middleweight contender Gaston Vega (17-4, 6 KOs) is on his way to Denmark.

Following his scheduled arrival on Tuesday, he will face the press in Copenhagen and Aalborg on Wednesday before travelling on to Frederikshavn. On Saturday, the 28-year-old will then clash with up-and-coming Danish star Patrick Nielsen (13-0, 7 KOs) for the vacant WBA Intercontinental Middleweight Title at Arena Nord. Here is what Vega had to say prior to his departure.

Q: What does this fight mean to you?

GV: “It is by far the most important fight of my career. The WBA Intercontinental Middleweight belt is such a big trophy. I can't wait to bring it to Argentina.”

Q: What kind of fight do you expect?

GV: “I will chase Nielsen all the time. It will be a hard fight, no matter if he moves or if he stands and trades with me. I am prepared for both things.”

Q How would you describe your style?

GV: “My style is to move forward and go for exchanges. My trainer always tells me to think more and be patient, but actually what I like to do is to attack. My strengths are my courage and my determination. I like to go toe-to-toe.”

Q: What do you think about Patrick Nielsen?

GV: “He is an undefeated young kid, and a southpaw. But he has no chance against me.”

Q: Nielsen´s last fight lasted only 11 seconds. Then his opponent was down and out. What do you think of that?

GV: “It was an accident that can happen in boxing, a punch to the ear that caught the other guy cold. Our fight will take 11 rounds. And I will win.”

Q: Your fight will take place in Frederikshavn, which is known for fishing and its maritime industry, amongst other things. Do you like fishing?

GV: “I love it and I would love to go fishing on the Sunday after the fight. But first, I'm going hunting, hunting for Nielsen. I will take him to deep waters.”

Tickets for the Nordic Fight Night at Arena Nord are available at arenanord.dk. TV3+ will broadcast live from 21.00 – 01.00.
