Nielsen and Markussen’s ‘Bad Blood’ feud reaches Boiling Point


Patrick Nielsen, Rudy MarkussenPatrick Nielsen and Rudy Markussen’s ‘Bad Blood’ feud reached boiling point today at the final pre-fight press conference ahead of their Danish mega-fight on Saturday night at the sold-out Brondby Hallen in Copenhagen.

The bitter rivals have been exchanging insults in the build up to their blockbuster clash, and their hostilities showed no signs of stopping as they met with the nation’s press at the Hotel D’Anglaterre.

‘’Rudy is a nobody. If I can’t beat him, my career is over,’’ said Nielsen, who believes he has his opponent beat in every department. ‘’I know I’m the better boxer. I have the better technique and faster hands and feet. Rudy is not going to stand a chance.

“It will not be fun for him on Saturday night. I think he will be scared when he steps into the ring with me. When the bell rings, it will be time for me to send him back into retirement.’’

Markussen, a former European Champion, and World title challenger, hit back at his young opponent, by claiming he has the support of the Danish fans.

‘’The whole of Denmark is behind me,’’ said Markussen. ‘’I have people stopping me in the street saying please, please, please knock this guy out!

‘’On Saturday night, I will do everyone in Denmark a favor by silencing Nielsen once and for all. I have the experience, and I have the power to win this fight convincingly.’’

Promoters Kalle and Nisse Sauerland are looking forward to a fascinating encounter on Saturday night and have urged fans not to miss what they describe as the biggest fight in Danish boxing history.

‘’This is the most highly anticipated fight in Danish boxing history,’’ said promoter Nisse Saueraland. ‘’Rudy has the experienced, he has challenged for World titles and has fought against some of the best fighters of his generation, while Patrick has youth on his side along with the boxing skills and adaptability to compete at the highest level.’’

‘’This is more than a boxing match, this is a real grudge match between two fighters who don’t’ like each other,’’ said Kalle Sauerland. ‘’There is a lot on the line for both men, with pride, bragging rights and a potential World title shot in the offering for the winner.’’
