With all major welterweight titles on the line and over a year of inactivity, Cecilia Brækhus (28-0, 7 KOs) took a couple rounds to get busy and back to her normal championship form versus Chris Manus (21-4, 8 KOs) at the Gerry Weber Stadium in Germany on Saturday.
As Brækhus became comfortable inside the ropes, her fists started landing faster, harder, with meaning.
Manus never wilted as she powered forward throughout, but was beat on the counters from the champion.
After ten championship rounds, Brækhus stood confident and at home with her IBF, IBO, WBA, WBC, and WBO belts tightly grasped as the judges scored the match overwhelmingly in her favor.
Official scores: 100-90, 100-90, 100-90
We are back in business!!
