Brækhus arrives in Tulsa ahead of record bout

“The First Lady” Cecilia Brækhus arrived in Tulsa, Oklahoma, as she prepares to sit in quarantine before her title bout this Saturday, August 15th, as she defends her Undiputed 147 lb. titles against Jessica McCaskill.

Brækhus (36-0, 9 KOs), who has been in the United States training in Big Bear, California, meets McCaskill (8-2 3 KOs) with in mind that a successful defense will see her pass Joe Louis’ 72 year record of 25 straight successful World championship defenses.
