Many regard Braekhus (35-0, 9 KO’s) as the best pound for pound Women’s fighter in the sport. A world champion since 2009 and undisputed Welterweight champion since 2014, she’s ecstatic to join the Matchroom Boxing team.

“I’m very proud to announce that I am joining forces with Matchroom Boxing for the next chapter of my journey.

“As always, I’ll be looking for the biggest fights and the toughest challenges in the ring. Thanks very much to my fans all over the world who have supported me for so many years. I’m excited to return to the ring soon.

“Thanks also to my team who have worked diligently to make this happen.”

With the undisputed women’s world lightweight champion Katie Taylor, WBO and interim WBC world Featherweight champion Amanda Serrano and WBA/WBC Super Lightweight champion Jessica McCaskill already in the fold, the signing of Braekhus further strengthens Matchroom’s roster of female boxers.
