In her last bout on Oct. 21, Braekhus stopped Mikaela Lauren in the sixth round in Stokke, Norway, not far from has adopted hometown of Bergen.

The 36-year-old Braekhus has stopped two of her last four opponents.

Reis (13-6-1, 4 KOs) will move down in weight to face Braekhus, having fought three of her last four bouts as a middleweight.

The 36-year-old Reis, who resides in Providence, Rhode Island, has won six of her last seven bouts. Her only blemish in that stretch was a unanimous decision loss to middleweight titleholder Christina Hammer.

Reis also lost to Hammer by unanimous decision in May of 2015. Her most notable victory was a split decision victory over Maricela Cornejo in April of 2016.

Loeffler also told Boxingscene there is a possibility unbeaten junior middleweight Jaime Munguia may appear on the card. Munguia was a candidate to face Gennady Golovkin on May 5 in Las Vegas, but the Nevada Athletic Commission reportedly did not approve Munguia as an opponent for Golovkin.
