Cecilia Brækhus had full control of Inna Sagajdakovskaja in Moscow on Saturday. “The First Lady” defended her title belts after winning on points against the Russian.

 

Brækhus was a great favourite before the settlement, and put her opponent on a downward spiral in Russia. In the end,she won on points, but the 36-year-old was close to getting Sagajdakovskaya on the canvas in the last round.

‘’That was pretty fine. I did not want to get a surprise here in Russia, so I played it safely’’,Brækhus said to Viasat news after the fight.

“She has been trying to psyche me ever since I came here.’’

Sagajdakovskaja eventually took many heavy blows in the last round, but was able to stay on her feet and in this way was ”spared” a knock-out when the bell went for the last time.Brækhus was amazed at how many punches her opponent could withstand.

‘’Yes, the Russian is tough, but both I and the judge were surprised,’’ said Brækhus.

Before the end of the fight, Brækhus had controlled most of the rounds, and the win was never threatened.
