The interim WBC Female World Welterweight title will be on the line for Mikaela Laurén (27-3, 12 KOs) and Klara Svensson (16-1, 5 KOs) when they clash on September 10 at the Hovet in Stockholm, Sweden.
The WBC belt will ginger extra significance to an already huge fight for the proud Swedish rivals, which has also been confirmed as a eliminator to face Norwegian boxing queen Cecilia Brækhus for her unified welterweight titles.
‘’This is a great opportunity for both fighters to get their hands on the WBC’s prestigious interim World title. It will also solidify their position as the mandatory challenger for Cecilia Brækhus’ World titles,’’ said promoter Nisse Sauerland.
The female warriors came face-to-face for the first time since the fight’s announcement at a tense press conference in Stockholm. Laurén likened her rival to a mosquito and vowed to knock her out, while Svensson promised to silence Laurén with her superior boxing skills.
