|Nielsen Returns: Claus Jensen|
Heavyweight Brian Nielsen (49-1) of Denmark returns to the ring in Copenhagen on September 3rd. Any doubts about Nielsen's future career after his loss to Dick Ryan in June have hereby been put to sleep.
Nielsen's weight is, according to his promotor, down to the lowest in many years: 109 kg and he is in good shape. Brian Nielsen's opponent in his fight number 51 should not prove to be too hard a task. He will battle it out for 8 rounds against Shane Sutcliffe (22-7-1) of Canada.
Sutcliffe lost his Canadian heavyweight title in February this year when Trevor Berbick stopped him in the 12th round. Since then Sutcliffe also lost to Oleg Maskaev, when he suffered a bad cut and the fight was stopped in the second round. But while it lasted, Sutcliffe was outclassed. Brian Nielsen's promotor Mogens Palle still believes that his fighter has a chance of getting a big million dollar fight in the States and Mike Tyson is still the goal. However - if that is to become reality, Nielsen will need a good win against a Top 10 opponent or a string of fights in the States against other good opponents.
