Euro News: Patrick Nielsen, Beterbiev-Fornling, Helenius, More

By Per Ake Persson

Danish super middleweight Patrick Nielsen, 29-3, has signed with Peder Forsmnan´s Sports Management and the debut for his new promoter is set for May 25 in Aarhus.

Nielsen lost a close, disputed decision to Arthur Abraham in April of 2018 and has been inactive since then and there have been talks of a rematch but the fight never materialized.

Nielsen was promoted by Team Sauerland for most of his career but became a freelancer after losing to John Ryder late 2017.

Peder Forsman manages a growing stable of fighters including WBO female 122 lb champ Dina Thorslund and stage his inaugural show this weekend in Ringkobing with middleweight Mikkel Nielsen, 7-0, on top of a bill that also includes Abdul Khattab, 16-2-1, Madi Jallaw, 0-1, Oliver Mollenberg, 1-0 and Alicia Holzken, 2-0
