Meet Cecilia Brækhus

Cecilia Carmen Linda Brækhus is a Norwegian professional boxer and former kickboxer. In boxing, she has reigned as the undisputed female welterweight champion since 2014 and is the first woman in any weight class to hold the WBAWBCIBF, and WBO titles simultaneously.

She is also one of only four boxers in history, female or male, to hold all four titles simultaneously, along with Bernard Hopkins(2004–2005), Jermain Taylor (2005), and Terence Crawford (2017).

In 2017, the Boxing Writers Association of America named Brækhus their inaugural Female Fighter of the Year.

We are proud of her achievement and we name her Most Influential 100 Class of 2018 Media and Culture category.
