Barbosa Aims To Outbox Nielsen, Otto Wallin Update

Brazilian boxer Samir Santos Barbosa (36-12-3, 25 KOs) aims to impress against Patrick Nielsen (26-1, 12 KOs), promising to beat the Dane with a beautiful display of boxing on Saturday night at the Arena Nord in Frederikshavn.
 
"I’m confident I can beat Patrick. I have a lot of experience and have faced stronger opponents before,’’ said the 35 year-old super middleweight, who fell in love with boxing at a young age.
 
"When I was five, I watched fights with my father on television, and I've been in love with the sport ever since. When I was 13, I started boxing and just a month later I began to box in tournaments.
 
"I try to pass my love for boxing on to the young people in Brazil who do not have an easy life. I have set up a social project for children where through boxing they are able to learn to cope in life and stay away from crime and avoid other social problems."
 
Barbosa is nicknamed 'Quebra Tudo' which translates to 'break everything', but the fighter admits he has now outgrown the nickname.
 
"I had some KO-victories early in my career and the media baptized me quickly as Samir 'Quebra Tudo',’’ said the former Brazilian Champion. ‘’Today my boxing is more technical, more refined and I’m happy to go more rounds to win my fights. The fans in Denmark can expect technically strong and beautiful boxing on my part. With these characteristics I aim to break Patrick down."
 
The veteran, who grew up in the Rio Grande in southern Brazil, is well aware that Nielsen is in line for a big domestic fight with Rudy Markussen later this year if he is able to win in Frederikshavn, but has warned the young southpaw to expect a tough night.
 
"I'll make sure that Patrick forgets everything about his fight wit Rudy. I have an inner peace and a cool overview when I fight, and I will do what I can to take Patrick to a place that is really uncomfortable for him."
 
Tickets for the Nordic Fight Night featuring Patrick Nielsen vs. Samir Santos Barbosa and Rudy Markussen vs. Ramazi Gogichashvili are available via arenanord.dk.

 Otto Wallin (12-0, 10 KOs) is benefitting from some world-class sparring ahead of his September 19 showdown with Vladimir Goncharov (5-1, 4 KOs) at the Rosvalla Stora Ishallen at the Nyköpings Arenor in Nyköping, Sweden.
 
The undefeated prospect from Sundsvall has travelled to Berlin to link up with former European Champion and World title challenger Kubrat Pulev, one of the top names in the heavyweight division.
 
‘’This is a great experience for me,’’ said Wallin. ‘’Sparring is one of the most important aspects of training, particularly when you are preparing for a fight, and Kubrat is one of the best heavyweights in the world.
 
‘’I know him from when I used to train in Berlin and he is a really tough guy. He showed real heart and desire when he fought Klitschko, and although the result didn’t go his way, he really pushed him to that next level, and it was a performance to be proud of. I couldn’t ask for a better sparring partner.
 
‘’However, I’m not here to just make up the numbers. I’m here to compete! I want to test myself and push my limits. This is a great opportunity for me to see where I’m at and how much I have developed, and I honestly feel like I belong here.
 
‘’No doubt about it, I’m going to be 100% ready for Goncharov. My coach Joey Gamache has the perfect game plan, I’ve had the perfect preparation, so it’s going to be another good night for me!’’
 
Wallin fights on the undercard of Erik Skoglund’s historic IBF Intercontinental Light Heavyweight title defence against Oleksandr Cherviak. All the action will be shown live on TV10 in Sweden. Tickets are available via http://www.biljettforum.se .
