Boxing Champion Cecilia Braekhus Receives a Kiss From Opponent Mikaela Lauren

||

Undefeated Norwegian boxer Cecilia Braekhus is defending her welterweight titles against Swede Mikaela Lauren on Saturday, but you guys probably don’t give a damn about that. You’ll probably be too busy watching some combination of college football, NBA, and NHL.

However! You might be inclined to find yourself a stream after watching this pre-fight presser in which Lauren randomly comes in with a kiss. Braekhus responds by slapping her in the face before getting a case of the giggles:

These two women do have history as they fought back in 2010 — Braekhus knocked Lauren out in seven rounds:

Lauren, now 41, isn’t letting their history weigh her down. She claims to be a different fighter now than she was seven years ago (via BoxingScene):

“I think she is underestimating me. Maybe she thinks I’m still the same fighter I was seven years ago, but I wouldn’t even call myself a boxer back then. I was a novice. I’ve developed so much since our first fight. I’m a completely different fighter now and she is going to see just how much I’ve improved on Saturday.
