Braekhus comments on Holly Holm retirement

WBA, WBC, WBO Female Welterweight Champion Cecilia Braekhus on Holly Holm´s retirement:

“I am very, very disappointed. A fight against Holly would have been the biggest thing in women’s boxing, the one fight every fan wants to see. It’s a shame that it will not happen – but it’s not our fault. We’ve done all we could. I have always said that I was willing to fight her, I have always been ready for her. My team has worked very hard to organise the fight. We removed all the stumbling blocks. We were even willing to go to her backyard. And when she has to chance to give the fans what they want to see, she retires. Really, I don’t know what to say. It’s a pity and I’m disappointed. I will now shift my focus to other challenges, there are a lot of other interesting options for me. One thing I know for sure – true champions do not run away from mega-fights.”
