Brækhus defends title by TKO
Norwegian boxing champion Cecilia Brækhus used just over a round to knock out French Anne Sophie Mathis in a historical title match in Oslo Spektrum.

"Let's get ready to ruuumble," said the world famous ring advertiser, Michael Buffer to get it all started. And in front of 10,000 ecstatic fans in Oslo Spektrum, Cecilia Brækhus won the fight against French Anne Sophie Mathis early in the second round.

- I had not imagined this in my wildest dreams. I was prepared for 10 rounds. I've never seen myself as a knockout fighter, but I guess I am, says Brækhus.

"The Homecoming" is the first professional boxing tournament on Norwegian soil in 35 years, since 1981, when professional boxing matches were banned in the country.

It was recently made legal again.

Kevin Melhus had the honor of boxing the first professional boxing match in Norway since the ban in 1981. The Norwegian opened his pro career by beating Christian Dulz Wittenburg by knockout already in the second round.

- I have not had time to think about that I am historical. This is huge for Norwegian sports and boxing. The road ahead will be incredibly exciting, says Melhus to NRK.

Brækhus is still world champion of World Boxing Assocciation (WBA), World Boxing Council (WBC), World Boxing Organization (WBO), World Professional Boxing Federation (WPB) and International Boxing Federation (IBF).
