13th April 2013

Location: Arena Nord, Frederikshavn


WBA, WBC & WBO Female Welterweight Champion Cecilia Braekhus (21-0, 5 KOs) will be taking on American Mia St. John (47-12-2, 18 KOs) as the Nordic Fight Night returns to Fredrikshavn’s Arena Nord.

Braekhus, who just signed a contract extension with Team Sauerland, is thrilled to be fighting in Frederikshavn again. In September 2012, she defeated French power puncher Anne-Sophie Mathis in the biggest fight of her career. “There were so many Norwegian fans ringside last time,” she said. “Their support gave me the extra lift I needed to beat Mathis. Now I will need their support against St. John. I´ve seen her on tape, she´s a tough girl and very experienced, but I will definitely continue my winning streak in 2013!”

Said St. John: “I am very excited to have this opportunity to fight one of the world’s best fighters. I know exactly what I am up against, but the great thing about boxing is that you never know what will happen. I have one shot and I'm expecting an upset in boxing on April 13th!”

The Nordic Fight Night will once again feature the very best of Nordic boxing with further fights announced shortly. Tickets are on sale at
