Rudy Markussen (36-2, 23 KOs) scored a spectacular first-round KO victory over Michael Recloux (19-12, 8 KOs) at the TV2 Fight Night in Herning on Saturday night.

In his first fight since November 2010, the “Hardhitter” wasted no time and flattened his opponent with a huge right hand.

Recloux managed to get back up but when Markussen knocked him down with another hard series of punches, the referee stepped in (2:59).

“I had prepared for eight tough rounds but I am happy I caught him early,” Markussen said. “This was a good win for me. I am pleased I showed my fans why they call me ‘The Hardhitter’ – I hit harder than anybody else at super-middleweight.”

In the co-featured main event, middleweight sensation Patrick Nielsen (11-0, 6 KOs) showed that trainer Karsten Rower´s hard training work paid off. Nielsen cleverly picked apart Farouk Daku (12-2, 7 KOs), using his long jab and powerful southpaw left to tear his opponent down. He landed good shots in the second, and in the third round, Daku´s face was already battered.

Nielsen landed a huge left at the end of the fourth that badly wobbled Daku only for the bell to save him. Nielsen continued his dominance in the following rounds and cruised to a shut-out points victory (80-72).

“That was a good performance by Patrick,” Rower said. “He did was he was supposed to do and cleverly outboxed Daku. Patrick again showed his talent tonight.”
