More Details On Gus Hansen Vs. Theo Jorgensen Fight

Gus-hansen-theo-jorgensen-boxing-poster The boxing match between Danish poker pros Gus "The Great Dane" Hansen and Theo "Thunder Punch" Jorgensen is on, and it's beginning to look like a real deal bout complete with a typical boxing-style poster promoting the contest and a strap line: "Betting Got Physical."

While we covered most of the details for the prop fight here, some new info has emerged including the venue for the fight and ticket info. The fight will be held on February 21, on the final day of the EPT Copenhagen, at the KB Hallen concert hall and sports center. You can purchase tickets online here for 249 DKK (about $43).

In addition to the main event, organizers are working to secure some musical acts as well as put together a few undercard fights. Right now it looks like Peter Davidsen and Johnny Jensen will square off, and according to Ekstra Bladet, efforts are being made to secure Dane  Peter 'Zupp' Jepsen and the uber aggresive Finnish poker pro Ilari 'Ziigmund' Sahamies (check out Ziig fighting here, h/t Poker-King.com)

As we mentioned before, the bout is being used to promote the launch of Gus Hansen's new online video site GusHansenTV.com, which will air the fight live, and it is also settling a year-old prop bet between the two, with Theo earning $35k for a victory and Gus grabbing $25k if he wins.
