Cecilia Braekhus To Face Ann Sophie Mathis: Deal Reached

By Per Ake Persson

There aren´t many big female fights regardless of weight division but come March, in Denmark, Sauerland´s First Lady, Cecilia Braekhus (19-0, 5KOs), WBA, WBO and WBC female welterweight champion, will take on Ann Sophie Mathis (26-1, 22KOs) from France. The fight is a done deal at both ends with date to be announced. Mathis comes in fresh from  a stoppage win over Holly Holm - and a rematch with Holm might come in June providing of course that Ann Sophie beats Braekhus.
