10/06/2023 - No comments

On October 7th, Sheffield’s Utilita Arena is set to witness a fight of significant proportions as Terri Harper takes on Cecilia Braekhus. At stake? The esteemed WBA and WBO Super-Welterweight World Titles. For those unable to attend in Sheffield, DAZN offers a front-row seat to the live action from the comfort of home.

This fight, originally slated as an undercard for the Katie Taylor vs. Chantelle Cameron event in Dublin’s 3Arena, was postponed due to an unfortunate illness sidelining Braekhus. But now, preparations are in full swing, promising an event that will surely captivate the boxing world.

Harper, with a solid footing in the world title arena, boasts a record that includes the WBC and IBO Super-Featherweight World Championships. With 13 wins, a single loss, and a draw under her belt, she has proven her worth in the ring. Notably, her victory over Scotland’s Hannah Rankin at Nottingham’s Motorpoint Arena earned her the WBA 154lbs World Title.

On the opposite corner, Cecilia Braekhus, the ‘First Lady’ of boxing, brings a rich legacy to the ring. With an impressive 37 wins and only 2 losses, Braekhus is no stranger to pressure and victory. Having been an undisputed champion at 147lbs, she now aspires to claim a top-contender spot in yet another weight division.

Terri Harper:

The moment our fight was initially announced, boxing enthusiasts were overjoyed. It was truly a letdown when Cecilia had to postpone. However, the silver lining was that I fought the following week, ensuring my rigorous training wasn’t in vain. Now, with the fight rescheduled in Sheffield Arena, a place that has witnessed my personal triumphs and challenges, and an additional belt at stake, the stakes are even higher. I’ve been somewhat unnoticed in my previous few fights, focusing on refining my skills. This Saturday, I aim to reclaim the spotlight and be the talk of the boxing community.

At this juncture in my career, I’m zealous about pursuing significant fights. I aim for financial stability, desiring the comforts of a lavish home. A victory over Cecilia will pave the way for greater opportunities. While recognizing Cecilia’s outstanding track record and her experience with elite champions, I’m confident in my preparation. I’m eager to seize this chance with flair and finesse.

The overwhelming support I continually receive is genuinely humbling. Reflecting on the magnificence of the Sheffield Arena during a fight night gives me chills. Last time, I was slightly upset due to unforeseen changes. However, this time, I’m committed to relishing every second.

Cecilia Braekhus:

Our last scheduled fight was a challenging day for me. Waking up sick, I immediately realized I wouldn’t be stepping into the ring. Calling off the fight was inevitable and heart-wrenching. Nevertheless, I’m grateful to Matchroom and Team Harper for granting a rematch. They could’ve chosen a different path. Given our prolonged focus on each other across two training camps, the energy now is distinct. With an added belt up for grabs, I’m not just compelled to win; I yearn for it and am set on achieving it.

While Terri had a noticeable size advantage during our previous weigh-in, I firmly believe that this fight will hinge more on boxing techniques rather than sheer size. In that regard, I trust my boxing capabilities to lead me to victory.
