Norway's own Cecilia Brækhus is The First Lady of the boxing sport. This event marks her first ever professional boxing match on Norwegian soil. There will be 4 boxing matches this evening of which Brækhus' fight vs Anne Sophie Mathis is the main attraction.
Professional boxing has been outlawed in Norway since 1981, meaning that Brækhus and others have been forced to practice their sport in other countries. Now, however, Brækhus is bringing her sport home to her home audience.
Brækhus is undefeated from her 28 professional matches, and holds the WBC, WBA, IBF and WBO titles.
