Cecilia Braekhus to fight Tatjana Dieckmann on March 29

Cecilia Braekhus is looking for her sixth win in as many professional fights when she takes on Germany´s Tatjana Dieckmann on the Abraham undercard in Kiel on March 29. “All German boxers are very tough but I am confident of success,“ the First Lady (5-0, 2 KOs) said. “After two exhausting training camps I will be in a shape I have never been in before..

The 26-year-old spent the better part of the last two weeks in Kienbaum, the famous former East German training camp base just outside Berlin. “It was a whole new experience for me,“ she stated. “All we did was train, eat and sleep. It was very hard but a lot of fun. The atmosphere has been great.“

Today the team will be travelling to Ruegen, Germany´s largest island just off the coast of Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania, where coach Ulli Wegner will prepare his boxers for the March 29 show. The coach has been full of praise for his first female fighter who last clinched a fourth-round TKO victory over Wanda Pena Ozuna in Berlin. “It is a pleasure to work with her,” Wegner lauded. “She´s so talented and determined. She has a golden future ahead.”

Even Dieckmann admitted she was impressed by Braekhus´ accomplishments. “I have heard and read a lot about her,” the 39-year-old German said. “She has a great amateur record and has won all of her fights as a pro. I have a lot of respect for her but I want to perform well in front of my home fans.”
