DAZN’s Grisham- Braekhus streak like “Undertaker at Wrestlemania”
It’s a brand new preview edition of the “Big Fight Weekend Podcast,” as we’re back with guests to get ready for multiple fight cards in the U.S. and the U.K. coming this weekend. The most prominent involves a Championship boxing streak being compared to WWE’s “Wrestlemania.”
First, DAZN streaming P x P man, Todd Grisham, is on location for their Matchroom Boxing fight card in Tulsa, OK. Todd shares what it’s like to be in quarantine early this week in the DAZN/Matchroom Boxing “bubble” prior to the bouts Saturday.
Then, the guys discuss the unique setup outdoors in downtown Tulsa and also the main event, Women’s World Welterweight champ, Cecilia Braekhus, defending her title for the 26th time against Jessica McCaskill. That’s when Grisham, who used to be part of WWE wrestling commentary in throughout the early 2000s, made his comparison to the legendary “Undertaker” constantly winning at their biggest event every year.

Meanwhile, Braekhus will be the first female to headline a Matchroom/DAZN show in the U.S.
