Cecilia Braekhus, Sauerland in Promotional Tussle

By Per Ake Persson

The big story in Norwegian sports last week was Cecilia Braekhus (24-0, 7KOs), the WBA/WBC/WBA female welterweight champion, announcing that she is splitting with longtime promoter Sauerland Event. Braekhus was lined up to fight on May 24 but all of that is on hold for now. Promoters Kalle Sauerland said there is an existing contract - something it appears that Braekhus and her advisors dispute.

[QUOTE=Slowhand;14398800]Sauerland seems to have problems keeping their fighters happy. Braekhus, Helenius, Abraham.. slave contracts, perhaps?[/QUOTE] Its clearly a money issue. Where Brækhus would go without Sauerland remains to be seen. Its not like womens boxing is a particularly hot commodity…

[QUOTE=Slowhand;14398800]Sauerland seems to have problems keeping their fighters happy. Braekhus, Helenius, Abraham.. slave contracts, perhaps?[/QUOTE] Abraham seems to be very happy at the moment. Helenius has reconciled with Sauerland and Braekhus simply believes her contract expired.

Sauerland seems to have problems keeping their fighters happy. Braekhus, Helenius, Abraham.. slave contracts, perhaps?
