Nielsen Dominates Adamu: Wallin, Lihaung, Yigit Win

By Per-Ake Persson

Copenhagen, Denmark - Super middleweight Patrick Nielsen (26-1) didn´t win any fans in winning a 12-round unanimous decision over Ghana´s Charles Adamu (23-7) in the headliner of this edition of Nordic Fight Night. Adamu was caught cold in the first and looked shaken but after the second he proved to be a cagey survivor while Nielsen appeared to lack the skills to open his opponent up. The three judges all had it 120-108 after a boring fight with no highlights. Nielsen thus retained the WBA Int´l title.

----------------------

The all-Norwegian grudge fight between super middleweights Tim-Robin Lihaug (12-1) and Arne Ernstsen (7-1) came to a sudden in late in the fourth when Lihaug landed with a short, powerful left hook and Ernstsen went down. He got up but walked groggily to his corner and it was stopped at 2.59. Ernstsen´s long reach caused Lihaug a lot of problems and he kept walking into left jabs but was the stronger man and while Arne was winning the rounds one could tell that Lihaug got closer and closer. After three completed rounds the all three judges had 30-27 for Ernstsen. It was scheduled for ten.

Lihaug is now trained by Ulf Johansen but began his career with Ernstsen´s trainer and manager Helge "Stonehand" Waeroy so there was a lot of prestige at stake in this one.

----------------------

British cruiserweight Deion Jumah (5-0) stopped Karel Horejsek (3-3-1) 0.01 into the fourth of a scheduled six rounder that ended a very long night with more TV breaks than boxing. Horejsek was floored in the third and retired due an injured arm or hand. He was too small to have an impact on Jumah and was second best throughout.

----------------------

Competing in Europe, IBF #5 cruiserweight Micki Nielsen (18-0, 12 KOs) couldn't avoid a certain fight in his career - a ground test by famed continental gatekeeper Ismail Abdoul of Belgium. Nielsen has passed the test - 80-72 unanimously - but not with flying colours. The only one who was able to do that is Krzysztof Wlodarczyk as Abdoul (now 56-35-2, 20 KOs) was stopped just once in his career (against Diablo).

----------------------

Former Ukrainian amateur standout-turned-journeyman Alexey Mazikin (14-12-2, 4 KOs) started promptly against big Swede Otto Wallin (12-0, 10 KOs) but was unraveled with the body shots in round two. Mazikin, 40, looks to be almost finished, going 0-6 and 1-10-1 since 2012 and 2008 respectively. Time was 2:26.

----------------------

Junior welterweight Anthony "Can You Dig It" Yigit (14-0) stopped Tony Owen (16-4) at 2:07 of the seventh of a scheduled eight-rounder. Yigit went all out - and when I say that I mean all out - and spent long spells of every round punching away as if his life depended of it. Owen punched back but was simply overrun by a faster, better boxer. But Anthony lacks one thing and that is power and that kept Owen standing until he finally crumbled under heavy pressure on the seventh. After six it was scored 60-53 twice and 60-54 for Yigit with the fourth scored 10-8 on two cards even without a knockdown. Yigit impressed with his willingness and enourmous workrate but needs to cool it just a little as he steps up in class.

----------------------

Dennis Ceylan (15-0-1, 7 KOs), a four-time (2008-2011) Danish national champion and 2012 London Olympian, continued his development as a pro with a unanimous decision over Spaniard Sergio Prado (11-5-1, 4 KOs). Ceylan has produces a workmanlike performance to get 100-90 (twice) and 97-93 advantage on the judges' scorecards.

----------------------

Lightweight Rashid Kassem (9-0, 6 KOs) effectively stopped young (21) and unheralded Nicaraguan Reynaldo Mora (7-2-1, 4 KOs) in the sixth round. Mora lost his second straight on a kayo and was also knocked down against Kassem. Scores were 50-44 on all the scorecards at the time of stoppage.

----------------------

Denmark-based Ivory Coast native Landry Kore (4-0, 1 KOs) effectively outpointed Hungarian road loser Norbert Szekeres (16-42-3, 9 KOs) unanimously over six. Scores were 60-54 across the boards. Szkeres lost his eighth straight. Kore is fighting as a middleweight.
