In boxing find the organizers always an opponent as one's own boxer can easily win over.
Prejudices are in the queue. And even though Mogens Palle makes a virtue out of the to find skilled opponents to its English Fight Night-rallies, so stick fame is undeniable to the sport. And maybe the cost for the tv time.
Mogens Palle was fame with overmatchning as a problem only for the boxing.
- that's How it is also in all other sports. Everyone wants to win, " says Palle to Ekstra Bladet.
But in boxing, one finds the opponent, you will meet, where it is probably more specific, for example, in football, handball and tennis?
Jo-Jo, but now take just håndboldmændene, which started out against Chile. If I made a fight with one of my boxers and then a on the level, as Chile has, so one would say, 'what the hell is that for a mismatch to make', " says Palle.
The battle had then no sporting justification. The runs and banging out 100 goals at a time, and I have a hard time seeing the sporting value, " says Palle.
He does not buy the argument that there are closer matches later in the tournament, and that there's not talk about the opponents, as they themselves have chosen.

currently, TV2 and DR good ratings on the WORLD cup in handball, but he feels that there should be room for other sports than just handball and football on the Danish channels.
- There are some sports that are more spoiled than others.
- the TV2 has made an agreement to show the 300 matches a year, but they could well make a deal to show 200 battles and then show something other sports also, " says Palle and wonder, that when there finally comes something else, so the basketball from the UNITED states, american football, golf, and cycling for hours and seasoned with a little darts and snooker.
- It is a little strange, that you basically have bortelimineret Danish boxing. They show a lot of strange foreign boxers, who do not have much of the Danish interest, and I don't understand, " says Palle.

But in the 90's won your boxers the world championships, and it is probably also because that they are not quite up to the level yet, though there now is a junior-heavyweight championship for Oliver Meng?
Journalists have hurt as much rumpetten of the fact that there are so many verdensforbund. Try to see tennis, there are four grand slam, but then there is also the Stuttgart Open and the Paris Open and all sorts of open tournaments in order to keep it going. Djokovic and Federer have met each other 50 times, and it is the same that plays, " says Palle.
But Danish tv would like to show it at the time, there was the Kessler, it is probably also, because we are not right up at the top fights yet?
- Listen, the League is damn well not up to Champions League level. TV2 and DR is the Danish tv-channels, that should show something tv for danes. They occasionally show something else is ok, but it is the 80 percent foreign sport, the shows, " says Palle.
He does not believe that the danes care less for boxing than in the past.
- But if you are starved, you won't get something to eat. If not they are given information about, that it happens and it is so dying out, it's on the way, " says Palle and wonder, to the Danish media uses the time to cover the finished footballer Nicki Bille with one article after the other.
- And now will FIFA expand the WORLD cup from 32 teams to 48 teams. It is the greed and just to get more tv money, and then use the tv all the money on it, so there will be something for any other, " says Palle, who would like so that the politicians do something about it.
Even Mogens Palle also played football. It was in the KB for many, many years ago, and he indicates that he is interested in many sports - just not handball.
- I'm not so much into team sports. I am brought up with boxing, and here is the man himself, it's all about, " says Palle.
- I like to build something up. It interests me more to build a young man up, than when they are up there. Tag f.ex. Mikkel Kessler. he was 20 years old just barely, as he was the prof. Throughout the journey, he gets his first WORLD cup match, where you have picked some opponents, you know, " says Palle.
- You are sitting here, and you have agents in different countries, which help with many different information, you need, and if not I had done it, so Kessler never achieved the results which he has done now, " says Palle.
- In the old days, it was always boxing, where you said ’it's collusion’, but now it was by a large number of tennis players arrested for match-fixing, and they had earned millions. There is never any that mention boxing more in the context, " says Palle.
Mogens Palle fiddling in the moment a bit with a book that will be published, when the promoter-the career day is over.
