Danish boxer Brian Nielsen expects to fight on despite facing main surgery to change both hips. “I am well aware that I’m a very old man and it will soon be ‘over and out‘…but I’d like one or two more fights before it’s all over,” the 47-year-old heavyweight told in front of surgery planned. “But it’s not just me who decides, the family will also have something to say. I haven’t talk it with the doctors, it’s not essential.”
Nielsen’s last match in the ring finished in a defeat by Evander Holyfield in May 2011 at WBF heavyweight title session. The Dane, who boasts an expert record of 64 wins in 67 fights, said he will know soon after his operation whether a return will be possible or not. “If I’m not back on my feet after a month, it’s over. But that’s not how it’ll be – I’ll be up again after a week,” Nielsen said.
