Micki Nielsen ‘’This is the biggest test of my career so far,’’


456dc6b9-4aa3-4e10-8c37-d8b90a79d566Micki Nielsen (16-0, 12 KOs) can continue his ‘Road To Glory’ on Saturday night when he challenges Julio Cesar Dos Santos (27-3, 24 KOs) for the vacant WBC International Cruiserweight title at the Arena Nord in Frederikshavn, Denmark.

The Dane spoke about the importance of the fight at a press conference today in Copenhagen. ‘’This is the biggest test of my career so far,’’ said the 21-year-old. ‘’Victory will put me in line for bigger and better fights. Losing is not an option!

‘’Dos Santos is a tough opponent, but me and my coach Joey Gamache have studied him well, and we believe we have the perfect plan to beat him. I’ve trained hard, and I’ve trained smart. On Saturday night, I will continue my journey to the top.’’

Nielsen’s coach, former two-time world champion, Joey Gamache, shares his young charge’s confidence and believe the current WBC Youth Champion is ready to add another title to his collection.

“I have studied Dos Santos so much that I feel like I could get in the ring with him,’’ said Gamache. ‘’We’ve been working on some new angles and techniques to break Dos Santos’ defence up. We’re well prepared, and I’m confident Micki will be taking the title home on Saturday night.

“I’ve been really pleased with Micki’s development the past 12 months. He has an incredible punch, but technically he is constantly developing. The Perdomo-fight has given him a lot a lot of confidence, and he still has so much-untapped potential. In Frederikshavn, I’m going to unleash the beast!’’

Dos Santos has travelled from sunny Sao Paulo in an attempt to capture the WBC International crown. He too is aware of the importance this fight holds.

‘’This is a massive fight for both of us,’’ said the power-punching Brazilian. ‘’The winner will have the opportunity to move on to bigger fights and challenge for bigger titles. I dream about fighting the top names in the division, and Micki Nielsen is the stepping-stone for me.

“I have great respect for Nielsen. He is a skilled boxer who still is still developing. However on Saturday night, I will be doing everything possible to put a stop to his development. I never go into a fight with the aim to put people down, but if I get the opportunity I will exploit it like I have done many times before.’’
