Cecilia Braekhus vs. Kali Reis Full Fight Video Highlights & Results




Cecilia Braekhus vs. Kali Reis made history on Saturday, May 5 serving as the co-main event of HBO’s Gennady Golovkin vs. Vanes Martirosyan “Mexican Style 2” event at Stubhub Center in Carson, Calif. It was the first time in history that a woman’s boxing match aired live on the HBO cable channel, and it couldn’t have come at a better time with Braekus defending her four women’s welterweight titles.
Braekus, who goes by the nickname “The First Lady,” entered the bout holding the four major women’s welterweight tiles — the WBA, WBC, IBF, WBO, and IBO female welterweight championships — with a perfect 32-0 professional record.

The full results can be seen below:

Cecilia Braekhus (32-0, 9 KOs) vs. Kali Reis (13-6-1, 4 KO)
Braekhus was controlling the fight through the early rounds, building up a strong lead before she appeared to get a little too comfortable. But at the midway point of the fight she was caught with a straight right hand by Reis that perfectly landed on the button and put the champ on the mat for the first knockdown of the fight.

Following her first standout round of the night, Reis showed some added confidence and continued to come forward in front of the champ. As Round 8 began to wind down, Kali Reis once again unloaded the straight right onto Braekus’ chin to once again put the reigning title holder in danger before she was saved by the bell.
While Reis was able to turn it on late, she was unable to put the champion away and the early-round dominance for Braekhus appeared to have the fight leaning in her favor. Did Reis’ late-round rally do enough to score the upset of Braekus? It all came down to the judges.

Official Decision: Cecilia Braekhus def. Kali Reis via unanimous decision (97-92, 96-93, 96-93)
