Cecilia Braekhus Ready

WBO / WBC / WBA Female Welterweight Champion Cecilia Braekhus (20-0, 5 KOs) opened her gym for the media today during a press work-out at Team Sauerland´s headquarters in Berlin. On September 22, the First Lady will take on French KO queen Anne Sophie Mathis (26-2, 22 KOs) at the Nordic Fight Night in Frederikshavn. “The training has been going very well,” she said. “As always, we have had perfect conditions. I´ve been tested hard in sparring, but that´s exactly the kind of preparation I need for a fight like this. I am ready.”

On Friday, Braekhus will wrap up the sparring. “I am very pleased with Cecilia,” coach Georg Bramowski said. “She´s in great shape and ready for the next victory. Mathis will be dangerous for the entire 10 rounds because of her power, but I am sure that Cecilia will use her superior skills to outbox her and defend her titles.”

Braekhus is already excited about September 22. “This is the biggest fight of my life, this is what I have been waiting for a long time,” she said. “It´s going to be a sensational event at Arena Nord, with so many Norwegian fans coming over to support me.”
