(APR 3) Last night at the Herning
Kongrescenter, in Herning, Denmark, Cecilia Braekhus, 147, won a
10-round unanimous decision over Jill Emery, 145. Braekhus was
defending her WBA, WBO, and WBC titles. More to follow soon..
Final judges scores were 98-92, 98-92, and 99-91.
Photographer Mary Ann Owen told WBAN.
"Braekhus was very aggressive all ten rounds landing more
punches. Emery had problems with Braekhus's pressure
through out the rounds. Emery landed a few punches but
not enough pull out a win. Braekhus won a unanimous
decision retaining her titles. Both fighters showed good
sportsmanship and hugged and talk after the fight."
Owen added, "I presented my Book Extraordinary Women Of The
Ring to the winner Cecillia Braekhus."
"Braekhus told me that she would like to fight Champion Holly
Holm next but not in Albuquerque, New Mexico, she would fight in
Las Vegas, Nevada", added Owen.
WBAN's European Corresondent, Torben L. told us that in the
Norwegian Newspaper report, Braekhus was
quoted to as saying that she was very disappointed with her own
performance, and said it was her worst fight yet.
