Cecilia Braekhus Stops Mia St. John, Masternak and Skoglund Win on Undercard


WBA, WBC & WBO Female Welterweight Champion Cecilia Braekhus (22-0, 6 KOs) continued her domination of women´s boxing on Saturday night, stopping American legend Mia St. John (47-13-2, 18 KOs) in the third round of their clash at the Nordic Fight Night in Frederikshavn, Denmark. Much to the delight of the many Norwegian fans in attendance, the First Lady stamped her authority on the battle early. She had St. John in trouble in the second, and when the former world champion was on the receiving end of another punishing combination, the referee waved the bout off in the third. “It was an honour to fight Mia,” Braekhus said. “She is a living legend and I am happy that I defeated her.”

Said promoter Nisse Sauerland: “Cecilia is the best female fighter in the world and she once again proved that tonight. We will try to make the Holm fight happen now, but we´re not going to wait for it forever, there are other options. Nobody can beat Cecilia, she is just too good.”

On the undercard, Swedish sensation Erik Skoglund (16-0, 9 KOs) clinched the WBC Youth World & WBO Youth Intercontinental Light Heavyweight Title with a points victory over Luke Blackledge (13-1-1, 5 KOs). The two unbeaten youngsters went at it from the first bell, and after ten rounds, Skoglund was ahead 97-93, 96-94 and 96-95 on the judges´ cards.

European Cruiserweight Champion Mateusz Masternak improved to 30-0 (22 KOs) with a ninth-round TKO win over Sean Corbin (15-4, 10 KOs) to add the WBC Silver International Title to his collection. Corbin was down in the eighth and the ninth.
