  • Braekhus is amazing but she won’t make history without facing Katie Taylor. If this fight can’t be made, then she will have to retire.

    • Jose: you are joking, right? Serrano is a feather weight. Braekhus fights at welter, Taylor at super light. Serrano lost badly to Frida Wallberg. Who? Yeah, right…Frida.
