This December 8th, 2018 is the double header featuring “Two of Boxing’s Biggest Stars” to be aired as one of the very last of HBO’s Boxing After Dark series. This is going to go down in history, one for the books! Its special to me, and many others I’m sure, to see our #1 pound for pound undisputed Welterweight World female champion boxer Cecilia Braekhus fight again on HBO. Cecilia, “The First Lady of Boxing” was the first female boxer to be aired on HBO in 45 years. That’s right, 45 years.
Braekhus, fighting out of Bergan Norway, will face two time world challenger Aleksandra Magdziak-Lopes (18-4-3 (1 KO) of Gilwice Poland now fighting out of Marshfield, MA, in the 10 round main event. Both Lopes and Braekhus defeated boxer Kali Reis. Magdziak-Lopes has been fighting in Europe going after the vacant WBC Super Welterweight World Title. Aleksandra is also a licensed Attorney, everything pointing towards that laser focus of an athlete. This is going to be an amazing fight. Cecilia just fought for the first time in Moscow Russia winning a 10 round match with Junior Middleweight Champion Inna Sagaydakovskaya in July 2018, remaining undefeated.
Also on this incredible double header is Roman “Chocolotito” Gonzalez of Managua NIC vs Pedro Guevara Sinaloa, MEX 33-30 (17 KO’s). I just saw “Chocolotito” box at the Canelo vs GGG2 Championship in Las Vegas, what a fight! Roman, has an incredible boxing career. Roman has destroyed his opponents as he has risen in weight classes. Chocolotito beat the hell out of Moises Fuentes in Las Vegas this last September at the Canelo vs GGG2 fight. I watched Fuentes bleed all over the place and then Roman put him to sleep in the 5th round with a right cross to the face. Goodnight! That is what 29 year old Guevara has to have stuck in his mind as he prepares for this fight. 2018 has been a good year for boxer Pedro Guevara with two wins, lets see what he brings to the ring this December.
On the undercard will be the Australian female boxer Louisa “bang bang LuLu” Hawton 7-1 (3 KO’s) A brilliant way to start the show.
Tickets go on sale today in one hour! The event is December 8, 2018 in Carson at the StubHub Center.
