Nielsen, Ceylan Aarhus press conference pictures and quotes

WBA Intercontinental Middleweight Champion Patrick Nielsen (18-0, 8 KOs) and rising talent Dennis Ceylan (4-0, 2 KOs) held a press conference at NRGi Arena in Aarhus today.

The two youngsters will be in action at the Nordic Fight Night on June 15. “It´s great to be fighting at home,” Ceylan said. “I have been asking Nisse Sauerland to stage an event in Aarhus for quite a while and I´m glad I´ll finally get the chance to fight here. My transition from amateur to pro boxing has been very good. It´s great to fight professionally, it´s more fun, you can feel when you get hit and you feel when you hit your opponent. I really enjoy it. I will give my fans a great show on June 15.”

Nielsen will make the fourth defence of his WBA Intercontinental Middleweight Title. “I look forward to fighting in Aarhus. 2013 started well for me with a victory in Esbjerg and I want to follow it up with another good performance in Aarhus. I´ll train very hard and I will be in top shape.”

Promoter Nisse Sauerland said: “It´s great to finally come to Aarhus. I hear it´s a big boxing town, so we expect a lot of interest from the fans. As always, the Nordic Fight Night will be broadcast live in Denmark, Norway and Sweden, so we will put together a competitive and exciting card featuring the very best of Scandinavian boxing.”

Peter Kjærgård, director at NRGi Arena, said: “It´s good to have a boxing event back in town. We look forward to hosting the Nordic Fight Night on June 15.”

Tickets start at 150 DKK and are available at More information about the Nordic Fight Night, including the opponents, will be announced shortly.
