Mathis to Face Cecelia Braekhus in March; Holm Rematch to Follow
After her defeat of Holly Holm, Anne-Sophie Mathis stated she was taking a few months off before fighting again. That vacation will end soon as she has two matches already scheduled from 2012.
WBAN broke the news this week that Mathis will be facing WBO/WBA/WBC champion Cecelia Braekhus in Denmark Mar. 17. Mathis’s IBA/IBF/WBF titles will not be on the line.
Braekhus will be Mathis’s toughest challenge to date, as Braekhus is an undefeated 19-0; racking up 5 knockouts along the way. If Mathis wins, she will be holding 6 titles simultaneously.
After the Braekhus fight, Mathis then will rematch Holly Holm June 15 at the Route 66 Casino in Albuquerque, NM with her current titles on the line.
No word on if either match will be streamed.
