By Per Ake Persson: Sauerland Event are trying to get retired Danish heavy Brian Nielsen, 44, to comeback and take on Evander Holyfield, 47.

Nielsen tells Danish news agency Ritzau a comeback won´t happen until - if possible - he has his knee fixed. The comeback plans have made big headlines in Denmark where Nielsen was a superstar. As for Holyfield, well, somehow it seems as if Sauerland forgot to tell him about the Nielsen fight but he tells Ekstrabladet he´s interested.. As for money it´s claimed in media that Sauerland has offered Nielsen a million EUR. To this reporter Nielsen has had his best days during the 90´s - he looked past his prime even when he fought Mike Tyson in 2001.
