Terri Harper v Cecilia Braekhus: Fight date, ring walk time, undercard & betting odds

Terri Harper and Cecilia Braekhus will clash for the WBA and WBO super-welterweight titles on 7th October. 

Harper's WBA strap is on the line and the vacant WBO belt has been added to what is an intriguing fight. 

The contest was due to take place earlier this year, but an illness suffered by Braekhus means it will now be staged in October. 

The bout will be a co-feature event at the Utilita Arena in Sheffield, on a packed card, that will also stage the all-British clash between Leigh Wood and Josh Warrington.

Harper is a 1/5 shot to shine in Sheffield, with Braekhus 7/2 to take the belts back to Norway.

Here is everything you need to know ahead of what should be a cracking contest.

Are there any belts on the line for Terri Harper v Cecilia Braekhus?

Harper’s WBA super-welterweight title is on the line in a contest that also puts the vacant WBO up for grabs. 'Belter' is also a former super-featherweight world champion and the 26-year-old is one of British boxing’s brightest stars. 

Braekhus is a former undisputed welterweight champion and the 41-year-old is looking to reign again in the twilight of her career. 

What is Terri Harper’s record?

Belter has won 14 of her 16 professional contests and six of those have come by stoppage. The Doncaster dueller has good wins over Viviane Obenauf, Eva Wahlstrom and Hannah Rankin. 

The only defeat on the Briton’s card came against the elite-level Alycia Baumgardner, but Harper has now moved up to the super-welterweight division. 

The 26-year-old also battled to a draw against Natasha Jonas, but the Liverpool lady has proved herself to be a top-class performer and that isn’t a blemish on Harper’s record. 

What is Cecilia Braekhus’ record?

After 39 bouts Braekhus is an extremely seasoned fighter and the Norwegian has been beaten only twice in her professional career. Both of those defeats came at the hands of Jessica McCaskill in 2021 and that put an end to a 36-fight winning run. 

The worry for the First Lady is that she is now 41 years old and has only fought once since that pair of reversals. 

Who is on the undercard for Terri Harper v Cecilia Braekhus?

Leigh Wood battles with Josh Warrington in the co-main event.
