The Cederroos have even checked into the same hotel as last time and are moving around the same block around Madison Square Garden.

It was there last spring that she lost the big title match against Franchón Crews-Dezurn for all four major WC titles – a chance to write Swedish boxing history in front of over 19,000 spectators.

This time she meets the undefeated American Shadasia Green, who has eleven victories, ten of which are by knockout.

The match was announced just under a week ago, kind of out of nowhere.

- Great fun to finally be able to play again, but it was very short notice.

The offer came just three weeks ago so it's been a short training camp.

Fortunately, the body has responded really well and I feel ready.

All the pressure is on her, says Cederroos to SVT Sport.

A victory from a great WC fight

This match takes place at the Hulu Theater in New York, a smaller arena adjacent to the classic Madison Square Garden.

The prestigious organization WBC's "silver belt" in super middleweight (76.2 kilos) is at stake.

Ten rounds in two minutes.

- The idea with the silver belt is that whoever wins it should be the first challenger to the big world champion belt, which Franchón Crews-Dezurn now has.

That being said, I've learned that in this business you can never say hello until it's done.

So a win here and you're hoping for another big WC fight?

- A victory now is obviously the idea and then there is the possibility that there will be a return match against Franchón.

I met her at the press conference today and she wished me luck.

She wants to go to big games and knows that a return meeting between us would be great.

"A significant gala"

The weekend's gala will be decided on the night of Sunday, Swedish time, and will be a new big investment in women's boxing, which had a strong year in 2022.

At the gala where the Cederroos are boxed, two major title matches will be decided, with all four WC titles at stake in both.

Star Amanda Serrano faces Erika Cruz Hernandez at featherweight and Alycia Baumgardner and Elhem Mekhaled meet at super featherweight.

- It's fun to once again get to fight at an important gala that elevates women's boxing, says Cederroos.
