Norway's Cecilia Braekhus returns to defend her WBC, WBA, IBF, WBO and IBO Welterweight world titles this November 28th against Switzerland's Ornella Domini.
The fight occurs as the support co-main event of the Wladimir Klitschko vs Tyson Fury Heavyweight title fight scheduled for the Esprit Arena in Dusseldorf.
For this fight, undefeated Ornella Domini is stepping in on relatively short notice, and she is a true welterweight, holding the EBU title in that weight class for the last two years.
She turned professional in January of 2013 and her record stands at (9-0).
Braekhus is coming off an injury that has kept her out of action almost a year, but her motivation remains high on this truly big stage.
Braekhus will be a wide betting favorite, as there is nothing on Domini's record that compares to the experience Braekhus has.
Braekhus is one of the women mentioned in the discussions around the #1 pound for pound fighter in the ladies ranks.
She is facing the pressure of returning from an injury and a layoff to fight in front of the biggest crowd of her career.
And with the fight airing on HBO in the United States, SKY Box Office in the UK and RTL in Germany more people than ever will get to see what the bzz is about around “The First lady” Cecilia Braekhus.
