First Lady Promotion´s show in Norway headlined by the First Lady herself, Cecilia Braekhus taking on Ann Sophie Mathis will be a pro-am show. The show at the Spektrum was sold out before an opponent was announced for Braekhus and will be the first professional boxing event in Norway since the fall of 1980. That show featured the debut of heavyweight Steffen Tangstad, who six years laters (and 30 years ago almost on the day) challenged Michael Spinks for the world heavyweight title. Back to Braekhus, no undercard fight with pro fighters have been announced.
