Sauerland: Holm Turned Down Braekhus Offer Again

Promoter Nisse Sauerland has made Holly Holm (33-2-3, 9 KOs) yet another offer to fight undefeated WBA, WBC & WBO Female Welterweight Champion Cecilia Braekhus (22-0, 6 KOs). Unfortunately, Holm still refuses to get in the ring with the First Lady.

“Our US representative Don Majewski was at Holm´s fight in Albuquerque last weekend,” Sauerland said. “He negotiated with her promoter Lenny Fresquez afterwards and made them another offer to stage the women´s fight of the century. We would have come to Las Vegas and we would have paid Holm the biggest purse of her career. Unfortunately, she turned us down again, claiming she wants to focus on her MMA career instead. That´s very disappointing and it confirms once again what we have been saying for a long time – that Holm is scared of fighting Cecilia because she knows she can´t keep up with her. We will now explore other options for Cecilia, of which there are plenty. She will be back in the ring after the summer break to continue her domination of women´s boxing.”

Holm chose life. Can't blame her.
