Nordic Fight Night hits Aarhus on June 15 – Patrick Nielsen to headline at NRGi Arena

Team Sauerland is delighted to announce that the Nordic Fight Night will come to Aarhus on June 15. WBA Intercontinental Middleweight Champion Patrick Nielsen (18-0, 8 KOs) will headline the big show at NRGi Arena against an opponent to be announced

“We are thrilled to stage our first show in Aarhus,” promoter Nisse Sauerland said. “The Nordic Fight Night features the very best of Danish and Scandinavian boxing. We will have a great mixture of international title fights, up-and-coming Nordic stars and local talents. It will be an entertaining evening full of exciting action.”

Unbeaten Nielsen, a former youth world champion, will be seeking his 19th win in as many fights. One year ago, he knocked out Gaston Vega in Frederikshavn to win the WBA Intercontinental Title, which he has already defended three times. Nielsen comes off a convincing points victory over British youngster Patrick Mendy in Esbjerg in February. “I look forward to fighting in Aarhus,” the 22-year-old said. “My last win has given me a lot of confidence. I feel I get better and stronger with every training session and I really want to show the fans in Aarhus something special.”

Peter Kjærgård, director at NRGi Arena, said: “We are very pleased to be the venue for this fantastic event. The Nordic Fight Night is a high-class international boxing series, and we are grateful to host it in Aarhus.”

Tickets will go on sale at billetnet.dk on April 11. More information will be announced at a press conference at NRGi Arena on Monday, April 15, at 11:00.
