MIA ST. JOHN TO CHALLENGE CECILIA BRAEKHUS IN DENMARK
Press Release: Team Sauerland announced that WBA/WBC/WBO female welterweight champion Cecilia Braekhus (21-0, 5 KOs) signed a contract extension with the German promotional company. Nisse Sauerland said, “We knew she was special when we signed her, and she has always delivered. Her talent, determination and skills have lifted her all the way from an unknown undercard fighter to a champion with a rock-star-like popularity in Norway. Together with her coaches Ulli Wegner and Georg Bramowski, the sky is the limit for Cecilia. There are a lot of big fights to be made!” Braekhus will return to the ring in Frederikshavn, Denmark on April 13th, taking on Mia St. John (47-12-2, 18 KOs). The April 13th date represents the postponement of a show originally planned for March 16th in the same venue. The March 16th main event, between Rudy Markussen (38-3, 25 KOs) and Luke Blackledge has been moved back to the April show.
