Denmark’s top boxing talents are back in action on June 20 for an explosive Nordic Fight Night event at the Ballerup Super Arena in Copenhagen. It will be ‘Danish Dynamite’ when the country’s brightest stars Patrick Nielsen, Dennis Ceylan and Micki Nielsen test their skills against tough international opposition.
Patrick Nielsen (25-1, 12 KOs) returns following an impressive points victory over former world title challenger Ruben Eduardo Acosta. In his third super middleweight contest, the 24 year-old will defend his WBA International title against former Commonwealth Champion Charles Adamu (23-6, 17 KOs).
‘’I’m looking forward to getting back in the ring and making the first defence of my WBA International belt,’’ said Nielsen. ‘’This is what I live and breathe for. I’m more motivated then ever and on June 20, I’ll be ready to take Adamu out!’’
Nielsen is joined by featherweight star Dennis Ceylan (14-0-1, 7 KOs), who after a series of show stealing performances is on the cusp of his first title challenge. Before the Aarhus-boxer can claim his first strap, he must overcome former European king Sergio Prado (10-4-1, 4 KOs).
‘’This fight is another step forward for me,’’ said the 26 year-old. ‘’I feel like I’m moving closer and closer to the title fights I dream about. Now, I know it is just a matter of time.’’
Having entertained with a fast-paced points victory over former world champion Dmitry Kirillov in his last outing, Ceylan is promising even more excitement against Prado. ‘’It’s going to be another entertaining fight. I can guarantee that,’’ said London 2012 Olympian. ‘’I’ll be in top shape and ready to give the fans another great show!’’
The third Danish fighter in the ring will be Micki Nieslen (17-0, 12 KOs), who was recently named ‘Boxer of the Year’ by the Danish Professional Boxing Federation.
‘’That was a very proud moment for me,’’ said the 22 year-old. ‘’It felt great to receive the award as recognition for all my hard work. I want to continue to improve and continue to impress, and that starts again in Ballerup on June 20!’’
Nielsen, the current WBC International Cruiserweight Champion, can move to 18-0 when he faces an as yet unnamed opponent at the action-packed Nordic Fight Night event. ‘’Bring it on,’’ exclaimed the rising star. ‘’I’m ready for whoever is put in front of me!’’
‘’We’re looking forward to bringing the Nordic Fight Night back to the Ballerup Super Arena,’’ said promoter Nisse Sauerland. ‘’It is a fantastic venue and a fitting place to stage such a big night of boxing. Danish fans can look forward to an explosive show featuring the country’s three brightest boxing talents.’’
