"Mikaela Laurén step out of retirement"
"Mikaela Laurén, 43, climbs out of his retirement for one last battle."
"Then she thinks becoming a mother."
"– this is the last thing I do. Then it will be hopefully a bun in the oven, " she says."
"In July last year, the Swedish boxningsstjärnan Mikaela Laurén she adds. Partly in disappointment that it was not a rematch against fellow Russian Klara Svensson."
"since Then, the sexfaldiga world champion nowhere to be seen now and then in the tv box, among other things, in this year's season of Champions champion. "
"But now it's time again."
"”Stronger than ever”"
"Laurén announces during the Friday afternoon that she makes sensational comeback against canadian Marie-Eve Dicaire in a title match that will take place in Montreal on 13 april."
""I have two weeks on me to prepare me, which is incredibly tough, while Marie Eve last year passed four pieces tiorondersmatcher...," says Laurén."
"it Was obvious to say yes?"
" No, it was not. You go into a world CHAMPIONSHIP match would be happy to have a good upload, like several months of training and good sparring in the back. But I love to workout so I have, fortunately, kept in time a lot, among other things, I have helped friends with sparring. In addition, I have driven very much strength training so I'm actually feeling stronger than ever, " says Laurén."
"Then there is another reason that she accepts the match. She wants to have children with her husband Peder Södersteen, who she married in the summer."
"– I love this sport and really wanted to not stop, but my love for becoming a mother was even greater and that is why I chose to put off. When I added the gloves on the shelf, I made it to be able to be a mother, but we have not succeeded in the ten months we tried, " says Laurén."
"She started with IVF treatments (in vitro fertilization)."
"– But it costs money..."
"How much do you get to go to this match then?"
" I do not want to go into sums, but enough to fund some IVF treatments."
"So that was why you said yes?"
"– Part, but hopefully I win the match also and have become historic as the sevenfold champion. Then I struck two birds with one stone."
"But it will be this match, then there is an end?"
"– Yes, this is the last thing I do. Then it will be hopefully a bun in the oven, " she says."
"What do you think of your chances?"
" Marie– Eve is the Canada's big star, she has 14-0 and is the defending champion, but she has never faced someone of my caliber before so I hope to be able to shock her. There is only one stone is needed!"
"The crash can just as well land on you. Is there anything that makes you anxious, precisely considering that you want to be a mother?"
" No, for it is something she (Marie Eve) can't as it is to beat. She is fast, she has good combos and good stamina, but she has no real ”punch”. It was one of the reasons I took this particular match, in order that I should not have to be afraid to hurt me. Boxing is a dangerous sport, I know, but she is not a dangerous opponent. Sure, maybe she is faster than me, but she is not fucking stronger!"
