It has created quite a stir in the pond, to boxing promoter Mogens Palle Wednesday to Ekstra Bladet described Nykøbing Falster, where Citizens English Fight Night-event held on Friday, as the 'ass of the world'.
You can read the whole interview with Mogens Palle here:
Bl.a. OL-sølvvinderen and MMA fighter Mark O. Madsen has been raging against the Pallet, like the man behind the light - and lydproduktionen to Friday's boksestævne, Lars Rasmussen, has threatened to pull the plug, if not the Mogens Palle came up with an excuse.
The excuse, or something which at least recalls it, now come black on white from the Pallet-camp, in a press release on Wednesday night, writes:
I can understand that there has been some reactions on top of a quote in the Extra Magazine from me, to Nykøbing F. should be 'the ass of the world'.
- Let me stress immediately that my outspoken expression, which was delivered with a twinkle in his eye, and my colorful way of describing the world in the concrete case do not have anything with my relationship to the city to do.
- I keep much of Nykøbing F., and this was purely my way of describing that the city is far geographically away from a transport hub, Copenhagen Airport, as the photographs from the different countries are arriving.
- It was not supposed to be seen as something negative. The truth is that I am very fond of Nykøbing F., since my own father Thorkild Pallet precisely coming from this town. As I have told to folketidende on, then this is the boksestævne dedicated to him and the city, because he would have turned 110 years old if he had lived today. He was both the breaks and the boxer in the city, and I myself have spent much of my childhood here with my grandmother and grandfather, says Mogens Palle, in the press release rounds of:
I hope that all the citizens will back up Oliver Meng and the other boxers appearing in the ring on Friday night and will see through fingers with my special way of describing the logistical and operational challenges.
