Cecilia Braekhus vs. Mikaela Lauren in Play For October 21

By Per Ake Persson

WBA, WBC, WBO, IBF and IBO female welterweight queen Cecilia Braekhus, 31-0, will according to media in Sweden and Norway defend the title against Mikaela Lauren, 29-4, from Sweden.

Lauren has with her colorful comments long been on the want list by First Lady Promotion. The fight goes ahead October 21 at the Oslofjord Convention Center in Stokke.

Braekhus stopped Lauren back in 2010 but Mikaela, a former swimmer, was then very new to boxing and was outclassed. Lauren, 40, has since vastly improved but is a huge underdog against female boxing´s pound for pound best fighter.
