Cecilia Braekhus

“I’m very happy and excited with this great opportunity. We’ve had a terrific training camp and I believe that I am in my best shape of my career.”

“It’s going to be a hard fight because I am facing a big and strong opponent with a lot of experience,”

“Forget about male or female boxing, Saturday, December 8 is about great boxing. I go into the ring to entertain and that’s what I am going to do that night.”

“It took me a lifetime to get all the belts and they can all be gone in one night. It doesn’t get any more important than that”

“I believe I won the fight against Brenda Flores and that the belt belongs to me.”

“I am ready to fight right now and get what is rightfully mine, the WBC belt.”

“We gave a great fight the first time and I am just happy to get the opportunity to fight her again.”

“It’s a great night for female boxing and I am looking forward to representing my country and my family in the best way possible with another great fight and with the win.”

“My kids back in Australia were very disappointed with the decision because they felt I won the fight and wanted me to bring back the belt home and it’s what I intend to do on Saturday, December 8.”

Braekhus (34-0, 9 KOs), will defend her titles (WBC, WBA, WBO, IBF, IBO) against two-time world title challenger, Aleksandra Magdziak-Lopes, (18-4-3, 1 KO), a native of Gilwice, Poland, now based in Marshfield, MA in the ten-round main event telecast on HBO Boxing After Dark beginning at 10:20 p.m. ET/PT.

Headlining the undercard, Southern California fan favorite Louisa ‘Bang Bang Lulu’ Hawton, (8-2-0, 4 KOs), of Perth, Australia will once again face off against Mexico’s Brenda ‘La Bonita’ Flores, (15-4-1, 3 KOs) of Tijuana, Mexico in a featured ten-round world title fight rematch. In their memorable first clash, Flores was victorious by split decision on September 8, 2018 at the Forum in Los Angeles on the SUPERFLY 3 undercard in the night’s most exciting battle. Flores will be defending the World Boxing Council Atomweight World Title earned from their first bout of which the WBC mandated a rematch with Hawton due to the judge’s close and controversial scoring.

Man this is such a bs way to go out. Birth of HBO Boxing in 1973: George Foreman vs Joe Frazier Death of HBO Boxing in 2018: Cecilia Braekhus vs Louisa Hawton How the mighty have fallen.
