Castillo arrives in Denmark ahead of Braekhus showdown

WBO Female Light Middleweight Champion Oxandia Castillo (12-0,9 KOs) has arrived in Denmark. The power-punching 18-year-old flew into Copenhagen Airport on Tuesday night.

She will take on pound-for-pound number one Cecilia Braekhus (22-0, 6 KOs) for the WBA, WBC and WBO Female Welterweight Titles on Saturday night in Frederikshavn. “I had a good trip,” Castillo said. “I look forward to Saturday night. It will be an exciting fight of two champions. Both of us are physically and mentally ready.”

Braekhus and Castillo will meet for the first time tomorrow at the official press conference in Frederikshavn at 13:00.
