Cecilia Baekhus Back in Action on 6/7 in Scherwin

 Pound-for-pound number one Cecilia Brækhus (24-0, 7 KOs) will defend her WBC, WBA & WBO Female Welterweight titles against Jessica Balogun (24-3, 12 KOs) on June 7th at the Sport and Congress Centre in Scherwin, Germany.
 
The First Lady returns to action following a unanimous points victory over Myriam Lamare at the Nordic Fight Night in Frederikshavn, Denmark in February.
 
Says Cecilia Brækhus: “I can not wait to get back in the ring again. I've been training hard the last five-six weeks, hoping to get a fight before the summer. Now I am very happy, and very pleased that Team Sauerland and Team Brækhus have left our winter and spring disagreements behind us, and found a common path that is good for both parties. My great desire to fight on German TV is an added bonus.”
 
Braekhus faces Jessica ‘’The Hammer’’ Balogun in a return of their 2012 contest.
 
“I have great respect for Jessica Balogun. She gave me a tough match when I beat her almost two years ago. But since then I have improved myself on all levels of my boxing, so she will not get any snuggle time in the ring in Scherwin”, Brækhus adds.
 
Said promoter Nisse Sauerland: ‘’We are pleased to have reached an understanding with Cecilia. As we have always said the most important thing is that Cecilia remains active and I am delighted that the parties have found a solution and that she will be boxing for Team Sauerland. We hope that Cecilia can still box three times this year. She is a fantastic athlete and we look forward to seeing her back in the ring.
 
‘’Balogun is a strong opponent and must not be overlooked. She gave Cecilia a tough test the first time round and will be out for revenge in Schwerin.’’

Brækhus joins an action packed show on June 7th, which also features WBA Light Heavyweight Champion Juergen Braehmer and British Heavyweight star David Price. Norwegian boxing fans can watch Brækhus' in action on Viasat 4.

Said Stian Kleppo, Head of Sport at Viasat Norway: “We are very pleased that Cecilia Brækhus' next fight will be broadcast on Viasat 4. Cecilia is one of Norway's biggest sports stars, and we are looking forward to showing the Norwegian people another fantastic fight when "The First Lady" returns on June 7th.”
