Braekhus-Habazin: Alexander Hagen Set For Action

It’s a big night for Norwegian boxing on September 13! Alongside WBC, WBA & WBO Champion Cecilia Brækhus’ (25-0, 7 KOs) historic unification fight with IBF Champion Ivana Habazin (13-1, 5 KOs) and the domestic showdown between Tim-Robin Lihaug (7-1, 5 KOs) and Simen Smaadal (8-0, 3 KOs), Alexander Hagen (4-0, 1 KO) returns to action in a six-round contest against Yevgeni Makhteienko (2-2, 1 KO).
 
‘’This is going to be the biggest night for Norwegian boxing in a very long time,’’ said Hagen. ‘’If you’re a Norwegian boxer right now, this is the show you want to fight on!’’
 
The 25 year-old from Flekkefjord has begun to establish himself as a regular at Team Sauerland’s Nordic Fight Night shows with victories over Nikola Matic, Josef Obselo, Shahriyar Weisse and Roman Javoev. On September 13, Hagen will look to improve to 5-0 when he takes on the 27 year-old Ukrainian Makhteienko.
 
‘’Makhteienko is a tough customer,’’ said the Norwegian pugilist. ‘’He comes from a MMA background, where he is known for his strength and ability to take a punch but I’m the better boxer. My training has been going very well. I spent a week in Berlin sparring and have now returned to Oslo to continue my preparations. I will be ready for whatever he brings to the ring and I will remain undefeated.’’
 
Tickets for the Nordic Fight Night at TAP1 in Copenhagen on September 13 are available via billetnet.dk.
