Sport: Brækhus met Terri Harper last year in the WC match in the WBO, where it ended in a draw. Since then, Harper has chosen to drop down a weight class.

Opposite The online newspaper confirms Brækhus that Kozin is the next opponent if the Slovenian chooses to stand up. She must do so in order not to automatically lose the belt.

– I am “mandatory” on her. I am waiting for the date and where the match will take place. Hopefully it will go to the USA, the 42-year-old reveals to Nettavisen.

Brækhus believes the match will be over in not too long.

– It’s not too far away, and will probably be this summer, she says.

Brækhus was undefeated at welterweight until she lost twice to Jessica McCaskill in 2020 and 2021. Of her 39 fights, 28 have been for WC titles.

At welterweight, she held the title belts in the WBA, WBC, WBO, WPB and IBF.
