(DEC 13) ”The First Lady” Cecilia
Brækhus is returning to the ring on January 28th 2017 to a
Scandinavian mega-fight against ”The Swedish Princess”,
The two rivals are ranked as
number 1 and 2 in the welterweight division. The five-time
world champion Cecilia Brækhus (WBA, WBC, WBO, IBF and IBO) is
putting all her five titles on stake as she takes on the strong
and high-skilled technical swede.
The fight was announced at a press conference in Oslo, Norway,
today, just two months after Brækhus impressed with a
second-round stoppage of ”The female Mike Tyson” Anne Sophie
More than 20 prosent of Norways population was glued to the tv-screens,
as nearly 11.000 spectators filled the arena Oslo Spektrum.
Now Brækhus is aiming for a new KO-victory:
- My last fight ended quite quickly. I left the arena without
any injuries at all, and could go straight back to training with
Johnathon Banks (Kronk Gym). The main goal for this fight is the
same as last time. I am going to be better then Svensson in
everything. I will win, and I will end this fight long before
the 10th round, says Brækhus.
”The Swedish Princess” Klara Svensson has been aiming for
Brækhus since she beat her countrywoman Mikaela Lauren in a
tough 10-round interim-fight in September.
- I share Cecilias attitude, because I have the same goal as
her. I have been dreaming of this opportunity, and I am very
happy that this fight came now. I have what it takes to beat
Cecilia, and I am looking forward to face her in the ring, says
