All Or Nothing: Braekhus vs. Retzke

All Or Nothing: Braekhus vs. Retzke

29th November 2014

Location: Falconer Hall, Copenhagen

 

Undisputed (WBC, WBA, WBO & IBF) Female World Welterweight Champion Cecilia Brækhus (26-0, 7 KOs) is back in action on November 29. The pound–for-pound queen will face IBF mandatory challenger Jennifer Retzke (15-1-1, 9 KOs) at the Falconer Hall at the Radisson Blu in Copenhagen, Denmark.

Brækhus became the first female boxer to unify a division in September when she defeated Ivana Habazin in a historic fight in the Danish capital. Two months later ‘The First Lady’ returns, ready to defend her newly unified titles against the former IBF Female World Light Middleweight Champion and current IBO Female World Welterweight Champion, Retzke.

‘’I can’t wait to get back into the ring and show once again why I’m the pound-for-pound number one,’’ said Brækhus. ‘’To unify the division in my last fight was a dream come true. It was a fantastic experience and something that I will look back on with great pride. But now, my focus is on the future. There is still so much more I want to achieve, starting with another successful defence of my titles on November 29. I’m already in great shape and I’m ready to end the year on a high.’’

Brækhus’ opponent, Retzke, a two-weight world champion, is confident she has the beating of the Norwegian star. ‘’Cecilia should start polishing the belts for me because I’m coming to take her titles,’’ said the 29 year-old German. ‘’I know what I have to do to win and I know how to do it. Physically and mentally I’m the stronger fighter, and I will prove that in the ring. I will be returning to Germany as the new Undisputed Female World Welterweight Champion’’

Said promoter Nisse Sauerland: ‘’We’re delighted to have Cecilia back in the ring so soon after her historic unification fight and look forward to welcoming the Norwegian fans back to Copenhagen for another action-packed event. It will be a tough test for ‘The First Lady’. Retzke is a dangerous opponent. Cecilia will need to bring her A-game or risk losing everything.’’

Joining Brækhus in action at the Nordic Fight Night show are Tim-Robin Lihaug (8-1, 5 KOs), who returns following his domestic showdown with super middleweight rival Simen Smaadal, light heavyweight prospect Alexander Hagen (4-1, 1 KO) and other top Scandinavian stars including interim WBC Female Wold Light Welterweight Champion Klara Svensson (14-0, 5 KOs). Full undercard details will be announced shortly. Tickets are on sale now and available via http://www.billetnet.dk.

The event will be available via Pay Per View on Viaplay, the Viasat satellite TV platform and on the Altibox TV platform. The price will be 299 NOK. Viaplay/Viasat will provide further details related to the Pay Per View event in the coming weeks.
