Cecilia Braekhus vs. Mikaela Lauren II Official For October 21

By Per Ake Persson

It´s official: the First Lady, Cecilia Braekhus, 31-0, defends the WBA, WBC, WBO, IBF and IBO female welterweight titles against Mikaela Lauren October 21 at the Oslofjord Convention Center in Stokke against Mikaela "Nordic Queen" Lauren, 29-4, from Sweden.

The fight will be televised PPV in Sweden and Norway through Viaplay Fighting.

Braekhus stopped Lauren in seven back in 2010 in what was then a gross mismatch. Lauren have since then improved a great deal but enters the ring as a big underdog against the outstanding Norwegian boxing queen.
‘’Cecilia is a great boxer, but as a person, I don't respect her. I think she’s fake, she’s a diva, and she doesn’t treat other people with respect,’’ said the 'Nordic Queen' Laurén, who is eager to avenge her October 2010 World title defeat to Brækhus.

‘’She may have beaten me seven years ago but I’m a completely different fighter now. I was just a novice back then and now I’m a seasoned pro. I’ve always had fitness but now I have much better technique and I’m stronger than ever.
‘’I know I’m the underdog in this fight and I’m going in there with nothing to lose. All the pressure is on Cecelia. Of course, she is a good fighter but I don't think she has improved in recent years, and now the time is right for me to beat her.’’
Brækhus is back in action after outpointing Erica Anabella Farias in front of her home fans in Bergen, and 'The First Lady', now 32-0, says she is looking forward to facing Laurén as she looks to extend her eight-year world championship reign. 
‘’Mikaela has done a lot of talking since our first fight,’’ said Brækhus. ‘’It will be fun to make up for this in the ring. I won't underestimate her. I will approach this fight like I do all my World title defences, and I look forward to putting on a great show for the fans on October 21.’’
The Unified World Welterweight Championship clash between Cecilia Brækhus and Mikaela Laurén will be available to watch live and exclusive on Viaplay PPV in Sweden and Norway. For more information please visit
