WBA Intercontinental Middleweight Champion Patrick Nielsen (19-0, 9 KOs) faces the toughest test of his career so far when he takes on Patrick ‘The Machine’ Majewski (21-1, 13 KOs) at the Nordic Fight Night in Frederikshavn on September 7.
Nielsen’s latest opponent is relishing the opportunity to face the 22 year-old southpaw. ''This is a fight I was more than happy to accept,'' said Majewski. ''I can’t wait to come to Denmark and fight for his title. I am already ranked well with the WBC and WBO and this is an opportunity for me to move up the WBA rankings. I believe it will be a competitive fight but I am confident that when the final bell rings I will be taking the belt home with me.''
Nielsen shares his opponent’s confidence. ''This will be a tough test but one I am more than ready for,'' said the fighter from Albertslund. ''I will come prepared as always and fight with my heart. After the Andino fight my confidence is high and I know I have what it takes to take this guy out.''
Said promoter Nisse Sauerland: ''This is the toughest test to date for Patrick. Majewski is a highly ranked, world-class boxer. I have seen his fights and can see why he is called ‘The Machine’ - he just keeps coming! However I believe that Patrick will be ready and come September 7, he will announce himself even further on to the world stage.''
