In Oslofjord, Norway, Cecilia Braekhus improved her record to an amazing 32-0 with her ninth stoppage win over veteran Mikaela Lauren to retain her WBA title and secure her place among the greatest female boxers of all time.

The fight was broadcast live on PPV to Sweden and Norway through Viaplay Fighting. 

The match was a highly anticipated rematch from 2010, with Braekhus still the heavy favorite but Lauren having honed her skills since the first fight.

Braekhus promised a knockout and delivered on her promise as she dominated the action from the opening bell and stopped Lauren in the sixth round.
