Micki Nielsen Named ‘Fighter of the Year’ By DPBF

Micki Nielsen has been named ‘Fighter of the Year’ by the Danish Professional Boxing Federation (DPBF). At a ceremony today in Copenhagen, the cruiserweight talent received the award along with a selection of gifts and a charitable donation of 3,000 Danish kroners to the Børnecancer Fonden (Children’s Cancer Foundation).
 
‘’Last year my brother Patrick won this award, but now it’s my turn. He will need to work harder if he wants to win it back from me next year,’’ said the 22 year-old with a smile, adding: ‘’In all seriousness, I’m very grateful to be recognised as the ‘Fighter of the Year’. It’s a proud moment for me and I hope the money donated to the Børnecancer Fonden can make a difference in some of the children’s lives.’’
 
Nielsen was presented with the award by DPBF president Jesper Jensen, who hailed the Albertslund-boxer’s development. ‘’Micki has shown great improvement in the past twelve months and that is why we have awarded him ‘Fighter of the Year’. He has been getting better and better with every fight, which has included a superb performance against a former world title challenger, Gusmyr Perdomo. We all hope he can continue to develop and look forward to seeing him back in the ring.’’
 
Said promoter Nisse Sauerland: ‘’I’m very happy for Micki. It’s been a great 12 months for him and he is thoroughly deserving of this award. At just 22 years of age, he is unbeaten in 17 professional contests and is the current WBC International Champion. The sky really is the limit and we’re expecting even better things from him in the next 12 months!’’
