Braekhus aims to break Joe Louis’ seven decade record
In a Matchroom Boxing promotion, undisputed welterweight champion Cecilia Braekhus (36-0, 9 KO’s) from Norway will defend her crown`s against WBC super lightweight champion Jessica McCaskill (8-2 3 KOs) of the USA, on August 15th in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
If Braekhus retains her world titles, She will surpass a record which has stood for 72 years. A victory will be the 26th consecutive defense, breaking the record for the great Joe Louis in the 1940s.
However, McCaskill, who won the WBC crown in October 2018, is far from an easy rival. She is absolutely determined to become the new undisputed champion, but to do this, she will have to place one almighty dent into the undefeated record of Cecilia.
