Katie Taylor is one of the best boxers in the world right now. She holds some of the highest titles in the sport and is regarded as one of the most exciting fighters in the world, both in terms of female and male fighting championships. And now that she has captured the attention of the world, she has also managed to attract the attention of the most impressive, undisputed world champion, Cecilia Breakhus, who has expressed her interest in fighting Taylor, picking her as one of the top three most exciting fights she is going to have in 2019.
Braekhus, the champion with 35 wins and zero losses, the most impressive fighter and one who has held titles in the WBO, WBC, WBA, IBO, IBF, and the Ring Magazine title, an Oslo, Norway native, is looking forward to 2019, with Taylor is one of the biggest reasons for it. Braekhus has ranked her as one of the most important fights of the year, along with Claressa Shields and Cris Cyborg. As Breakhus travels to the US to prepare for her upcoming fights, she is commenting on the fighters themselves. She says that the point of the undisputed champion has recently become questioned, as she prepares to face Shields in the coming months.
After all, Shields is an extraordinary middleweight champion, with many saying that the fight might be in her favor. She says that she is excited to face Shields, but she does not fail to mention Taylor, who she finds to be a little more than exciting. As Taylor goes to fight in the lightweight championship bout on June 1st, Braekhus will be present at the fight, in Madison Square Garden, watching her and seeing what the fight of the future between the two of them might look like.
According to Braekhus, both fighters have expressed interest in fighting her in the catchweight category. And both fights would be something to pay attention to by the world. As two undisputed champions of the world face off against each other, the world would definitely turn their heads to observe, and that is something the possibility of which Breakhus is very excited about. To her, both of these fights would represent another way to push the world of women’s fighting even further into the limelight and elevate the sport into areas that it has never been to before.
A fight with Breakhus would be something of a challenge for Taylor, but a challenge that she will be more than prepared to take. And the fight would further promote her in the eyes of fighters around the world. Breakhus is, after all, a champion of the sport, being one who has been elevating the sport into where it is from the very time she started fighting. As reported by Norwegian site Norskecasino.casino, she was the one who helped lift the ban on boxing in Norway through her protests. She is the one known to be working towards elevating the sport. Taylor has been doing her part in promoting the sport as well, pushing the boundaries of what the sport is and how it works, going further and farther than anyone has before.
With the combined forces of these two crowd favorites, the possibilities are endless for the sport. The Irish and the Norwegian fighters might be able to help the sport become something it has never been before. This is why Taylor is looking forward to fighting with Braekhus as well – it is a way for her to elevate her own abilities, get better at the sport and push the sport even more. 2019 is winding up to be one of the most exciting years for women in the sport so far, and the expectations for how it is going to go and where it is going to end up are bottomless.
