Brækhus and Habazin ready for historic Copenhagen fight

WBC, WBA & WBO Female Welterweight World Champion Cecilia Brækhus (25-0, 7 KOs) and IBF Champion Ivana Habazin (13-1, 5 KOs) faced off at today’s final press conference in Copenhagen ahead of their historic unification fight at TAP1 in the Danish capital on Saturday.

"I can’t imagine that I do not stand with all four belts on Saturday. I will give everything I can in the ring," said 'The First Lady'. "To unify the belts as the first female boxer ever would mean a lot me. I've had a long amateur career and a long professional career, but this fight has made me more motivated than any fight before. I've been dreaming about this for a very long time.“

Said Brækhus's coach Otto Ramin: "Look at the belts in front of Cecilia - she's an amazing fighter. I know that Ivana is a good opponent and that she will do her best to win the fight. But I think we have everything ready for the fight, and that Cecilia will be the winner. "

Habazin made clear her attentions as she attempts to defeat the pound-for-pound number one. ‘’My only aim is to win,’’ said the young champion. ‘’I know that Cecilia is a tough fighter, but I will do my best to win."

Said Ivana Habazin's coach Vlado Bozic: "Cecilia is an amazing boxer and has achieved a lot. We are aware of what we can expect from Cecilia, but we are ready and prepared for that. Ivana will provide her best to be the winner.”

Promoter Kalle Sauerland is backing Brækhus to make history on Saturday night. "We are expecting and hoping our First Lady does what we set up for her years ago to achieve,’’ said Sauerland. ‘’It's been a long journey, but on Saturday I think we would have reached one of our goals. "
