Braekhus defends Nov 5

WBO, WBC & WBA female welterweight champion Cecilia Braekhus (18-0, 4 KOs) will defend her title collection on November 5 at Copenhagen’s PARKEN Stadium when she takes on Hawaiian Kuulei Kupihea (7-0, 2 KOs). It will be Braekhus’ third fight in Denmark this year after defeating Jill Emery in Herning (April) and Chevelle Hallback at the DR Koncerthuset (May). “I look forward to fighting in front of 20,000 fans at PARKEN,” she said. “The support in Denmark has always been fantastic but this will be the first time I step into the ring in a big football stadium. It will be a great experience.”

Braekhus promised Kupihea a night to remember. “I am the world champion and I am happy to prove myself against every contender out there,” she stated. “But whoever wants to take away my titles will get punished.”
