WBA, WBC & WBO female world welterweight champion Cecilia Brækhus (25-0, 7 KOs) will attempt to make history on September 13 by becoming the first female boxer in any weight category to unify a division by holding all four major titles when she takes on IBF champion Ivana Habazin (13-1, 5 KOs) at TAP1 in Copenhagen, Denmark. Victory in Copenhagen would not only make Brækhus the first female boxer to hold all four titles simultaneously but also just the third boxer in history to have achieved this feat following Bernard Hopkins’ and Jermain Taylor’s middleweight reigns.

Cecilia Brækhus: This is a massive opportunity for me to cement my legacy as the best female boxer of all time.

Ivana Habazin: Cecilia is possibly the greatest female boxer of all time but it is time for her to experience what it feels like to lose.
