The 23 year-old middleweight took the ‘W’ 100-90, 99-91 and 98-93 on the three judges’ cards to the delight of the home crowd as the southpaw moved to 23-1 in fine style.

In the co-feature, Erik Skoglund pressed on towards a possible world title shot in 2015 with a ten-round decision win over the aging ‘Road Warrior’ Glen Johnson.

The 23 year-old took charge of what was a closely-fought contest at times, but ultimately came out on top as his youth and movement proved the decisive factor.


Judges at ringside carded scores of 98-92 and 97-93 (twice) in favour of the Swede who improved his record to 22-0 in the process of inflicting at 20th reverse on the Jamaican veteran.

Earlier, headliner Patrick’s brother Micki Nielsen overwhelmed Gusmyr Perdomo to score a 100-90 (twice) and 99-91 triumph as the cruiserweight southpaw improved to 16-0

Unbeaten lightweight Richard Commey kept his undefeated run in one piece with a ten-round decision win over Samir Ziani as the Ghanaian moved to 19-0.

Commey succesfully built on his recent UK victories over Gary Buckland and Paul Truscott as the judges came back with scores of 97-93 and 96-94 (twice) and looks likely to gain a world title shot in the next twelve months on current form.

Also on the bill, light-welterweight Anthony Yigit pushed his record to 11-0-1 with a seventh round stoppage win over Gianluca Ceglia, whilst Noel Gevor made it 15 straight victories since turning pro by halting Tamas Polster in five. 


Oscar Ahlin was also able to keep his perfect run at light-heavyweight in-tact as he out-pointed Pablo Sosa over eight sessions 80-72 (twice) and 79-73, something Rashid Kassem, now 6-0managed to mimic in taking every round of six against the experienced Kakhaber Avetisian.
