(JAN 25) WBAN learned early this
morning on "Facebook" that Cecilia Braekhus will be
fighting one of
three challengers that went public to get a match with her. Just to get boxing fans up to speed. In December of
2012, Braekhus video'd her public challenge to Holly Holm to set
up a fight in Las Vegas, as she was planning to be in Vegas in
We then had multi-world
champion Layla McCarter, who fights out of Las Vegas, put in her
challenge to Braekhus: Team McCarter said in their
challenge: "Cecilia Braekhus is
coming to Las Vegas in July. Well, Let's do this. Layla
McCarter is ready to knock you out. We are here. Let's get it
on....We are officially challenge you!"

WBAN just received this update from the WBC:
The WBC has
told Braekhus’ promoter Sauerland Events and Holm’s promoter
Fresquez Productions to commence negotiations with a pending
purse bid if the parties are unable to reach an agreement for a
Braekhus vs Holly Holm match up. The fight against St. John will
be considered a voluntary defense (WBC) as Braekhus' fight
against Anne Sophie Mathis fulfilled her mandatory obligation.
