In this interview Ringside Magazine’s #1 ranked pound for pound female boxer Cecilia Braekhus speaks about the state of Women’s boxing. Following one of her workouts with Cris Cyborg who is scheduled to fight Holly Holm Dec. 30th in Las Vegas as the main event of UFC 219, Cecilia talked to reporters about her own career and her plans of coming to the USA to box in 2018.
“I love what is happening in America right now with female boxing. For many years it has been European female boxing that has been in front, but now the American boxers are coming, and they are coming fast and hard with Claressa Sheilds, Layla MacCarter, and so many names. I am definitely want some part of that.”
While Cecilia Braekhus is the only woman to capture the WBA, WBC, IBF, and WBO titles simultaneously she was unable to schedule a fight against Holly Holm before Holm left the sport of boxing for good. Holly is largely considered one of the best american boxers of all time, despite the fact that the majority of her fights occurred in her backyard of Albuquerque New Mexico.
Cecilia is is currently 32-0 as a professional in boxing after an amateur career of over 80 amateur fights and only 5 defeats. Will be see Cecilia Braekhus box in the USA in 2018? Would you like to see her fight fellow Cyborg Nation rider Claressa Shields? With all of the excitement around women’s boxing fans have to wonder if the fact that Cyborg is training with Cecilia Braekhus does that mean the rumored boxing bout between Cyborg and Cecilia is off the negotiation tables…or does it just mean Cecilia wants Cyborg to get a win over Holly Holm first?
