Patrick Nielsen (27-1, 13 KOs) opened the doors to his gym on Monday for a media workout ahead of his blockbuster showdown with domestic rival Rudy Markussen (39-3, 26 KOs) on Saturday night at the Brondby Hallen in Copenhagen, Denmark.
The Danish super middleweight looked in top form, as he was put through his paces by former two-time World Champion turned coach Joey Gamache.
‘’I can’t wait for Saturday night,’’ declared the 24 year-old. ‘’I’ve been dreaming about this moment for a long time, and now, I’m fired up and ready to go!
‘’Rudy is not going to know what’s hit him. I’m faster, stronger and more determined than I’ve ever been. I know I will beat him convincingly. He is going to wish he never stepped into the ring with me.’’
Coach Joey Gamache shares his fighter’s confidence, believing Nielsen has had the perfect preparation for his sold-out grudge match.
‘’Patrick is in great shape – physically and mentally,’’ says Gamache. ‘’He only had two weeks off after his last fight so he came into camp in good condition and we had the perfect platform to build on. Right now, he’s relaxed, he’s excited and he’s ready to get the job done on Saturday night.’’
Ondt Blod: Patrick Nielsen vs. Rudy Markussen will be shown live and exclusive on Pay-Per-View in Denmark. For more information on how to order please visit www.boksekampen.dk.
