Ondt Blod: Patrick Nielsen vs. Rudy Markussen

Ondt Blod: Patrick Nielsen vs. Rudy Markussen

12th December 2015

Location: Brondby Hallen, Copenhagen

 

It’s on! Patrick Nielsen (27-1, 13 KOs) and Rudy Markussen (39-3, 26 KOs) will meet in a Danish mega-fight on December 12 at the Brondy Hallen in Copenhagen.

The blockbuster showdown comes following months of antagonism between the bitter rivals, which reached boiling point earlier this year when Markussen crashed one of Nielsen’s pre-fight press conferences.

Having both overcome ‘Collision Course’ clashes in Frederikshavn last month, the stage is now set for Denmark’s biggest domestic fight for over thirty years.

‘’I’m very happy my team has delivered me this fight,’’ said Nielsen, the current WBA International Super Middleweight Champion. ‘’This is the fight I wanted and this is a fight I know I can win.

‘’I’ve had a short break after my last fight, but now I’m back in the gym, and I can guarantee fans are going to see the best Patrick Nielsen in the ring. I’m leaving nothing to chance and will make sure I’m in the best possible shape.

‘’Rudy can talk all he wants, but now, he is going to have to back it up. He’s called me out, he’s crashed my press conference, and for that I will make him pay. I’m too fast, too strong and too skilful. Rudy is a caveman, and on December 12, I’m going to send him back to the Stone Age!’’

‘’This fight has come at a perfect time for me,’’ said Markussen, a former European Champion and World title challenger. ‘’I hope Patrick is training hard because I’ve been preparing for this for a long time and will be 100% ready!

‘’This is a massive fight, not just for me, but for Danish boxing as a whole. We’ve not seen a rivalry like this for a long time. This is a chance for me to bring some excitement back to the sport. Patrick is not a bad fighter but he lacks that excitement.

‘’He also lacks experience. He may have had many fights and gone many rounds but there is a big difference between this and fighting in the States or going to Germany to fight Sven Ottke. I’ve been in this kind of situation before and fought against a much higher level of opposition.

‘’He is taking a big risk by agreeing to fight me and all the pressure is on him. I can feel that the fans are behind me. I know that they want to see me win, and on December 12, they will not be disappointed!’’

‘’This is the fight the fans have been waiting for,’’ said promoter Nisse Sauerland. ‘’There is real bad blood between Patrick and Rudy, and now they have the chance to settle their differences once and for all!

‘’Not since the 1980s, when Joergen Hansen and Hans-Henrik Palm twice contested the European title, have we seen such a big fight between two Danish boxers. This is going to add to the occasion and make for a huge event on December 12 at the Brondby Hallen.’’

‘’There is a lot of hype surrounding this fight between Patrick Nielsen and Rudy Markussen,’’ said Peter Nørrelund, MTG Head of Sports. ‘’This is the biggest fight between two Danes in decades and a fight where the Danish public will be split on who to support. From a broadcasters point of view this is as good as it gets in Denmark, and we are looking very much forward to delivering this fight.’’’
