Patrick Nielsen v Patrick Mendy – 9th February 2013

Ill keep this short as im still sizing up some more plays and running out on time, Prizefighter winner Patrick Mendy goes up against Danish prospect Patrick Nielsen, and this is an interesting fight because i think Mendy can make it close much closer than the odds suggest.

Mendys record can be a little illusive because he has 5 defeats in a 19 fight record all of those have been by the finest margins, a round or 2 the other way and he would have won all of those fights, and 2 of them 8 and 10 rounders against decent domestic opposition in Bradley Pryce and Kenny Andersen, and Andersen is a big puncher and Mendy hasnt been stopped yet so despite his clear lack of power he can take a bit of a dig.

Nielsen clearly has potential and hes still young, but i still think he believe he is overrated and at this stage in his career i think someone like Mendy could make a bout competitve with him.

I would expect Mendy to be at around 5’s maybe 6s but to see him at 9’s makes me believe hes worth a little nibble.
