Brækhus retains titles, Svensson and Lihaug win

Cecilia Brækhus (27-0, 7 KOs) retained her WBC, WBA, WBO & IBF Female World Welterweight titles with a unanimous points victory over IBF mandatory challenger Jennifer Reztke (15-1-2, 9 KOs) at the Falconer Hall, at the Radisson Blu in Copenhagen.
 
Brækhus once again proved why she is the pound-for-pound number one with a dominant display against her German opponent. ‘The First Lady’ started strongly and looked likely to stop Retzke before injuring her foot in the third-round. Despite the injury, Brækhus fought on to claim a clear victory, with the judges scoring the fight 100-90, 100-90 & 98-92.
 
‘’I would like to thank all the fans that travelled to Copenhagen to support me,’’ said Brækhus. ‘’I thought I could have got the stoppage but I injured my foot and had to adjust my tactics. I was unlucky, but fortunately the injury doesn’t appear to be serious. Retzke was a tough opponent but I think I showed, even with one foot, that I’m a class above.’’
