The two rivals are ranked as number 1 and 2 in the welterweight-division. The five-time world champion Cecilia Brækhus (WBA, WBC, WBO, IBF and IBO) is putting all her five titles on stake as she takes on the strong and high-skilled technical swede.

The fight was announced at a press conference in Oslo, Norway, today, just two months after Brækhus impressed with a second-round stoppage of ”The female Mike Tyson” Anne Sophie Mathis.

More than 20 prosent of Norways population was glued to the tv-screens, as nearly 11.000 spectators filled the arena Oslo Spektrum.

Now Brækhus is aiming for a new KO-victory:

"My last fight ended quite quickly. I left the arena without bruises or any injuries at all, and could go straight back to training with Johnathon Banks (Kronk Gym).  The main goal for this fight is the same as last time. I am going to be better then Svensson in everything. I will win, and I will end this fight long before the 10th round," says Brækhus.

”The Swedish Princess” Klara Svensson has been aiming for Brækhus since she beat her countrywoman Mikaela Lauren in a tough 10-round interim-fight in September.

"I share Cecilias attitude, because I have the same goal as her. I have been dreaming of this oportunity, and I am very happy that this fight came now. I have what it takes to beat Cecilia, and I am looking forward to face her in the ring," says Svensson.

Might be the only woman in Sweden who has the ability to fight off Muslim Refugee rapists...

Sweden vs Norway. This will be a big fight in Scandinavia. Klara is a very good boxer and unless she's wearing high heels she looks to be a few inches taller. This could turn out to be Cecilia's most difficult…
