Nielsen, Yebes Tension Continues To Grow at Presser

WBA Intercontinental Middleweight Champion Patrick Nielsen (15-0, 8 KOs) is fired up to get in the ring with Jose Yebes (11-2-1, 5 KOs) after the first face-to-face encounter with him today.

“When I see my opponent for the first time something inside me changes,” Nielsen said after the press conference at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Copenhagen.

“I am so fired up and ready to go, I can barely restrain myself. I would love to get it on as soon as possible. Yebes came quite close today during the face-to-face. If he comes any closer at the weigh-in he will be in trouble even before the fight starts. I want to get my hands on him!”

Promoter Nisse Sauerland has told his rising middleweight star to wait until Saturday. “I really love Patrick´s hunger, he is so determined and you could feel how excited he is about the fight. I am sure the next couple of days will further boost his motivation until he can finally explode on Saturday night!”

Yebes is ready to get it on, too. “Nielsen looks fit and in shape, but I have come to Denmark to win.” The Spaniard has a special hobby outside the ring – he enjoys the theatre and has worked as an actor. “I have been in two movies,” he said. “Once I played a boxer and once I played a kidnapper. I was kidnapping the bad guys and on Saturday night I will try to kidnap Nielsen´s belt. He is a good boxer, very talented and very strong, but I have come to Denmark to win and take the belt to Spain.”

Tickets for the Nordic Fight Night are available at www.arenanord.dk. Dennis Ceylan also makes his professional debut, while WBA / WBC / WBO Female Welterweight Champion Cecilia Braekhus (20-0, 5 KOs) battles it out with Anne Sophie Mathis (26-2, 22 KOs).

Nielsen must learn to control his emotions during fights. Apparently also during the build up.
