IBF/WBO Lightweight Champion Mikaela Mayer and Unbeaten WBC Champion Alycia Baumgardner to Battle It Out in September
As revealed by co-promoters Top Rank (Mayer) and Baugardner, the pair of junior lightweight titlists—Baumgardner (12-1, 7KOs) holds the WBC championship and Mayer (17-0, 5KOs) holds the combined IBF/WBO title—will face off in early-to-mid September.
"All that yapping you were doing, here I am," Baumgardner promised after the battle was officially announced on Monday.
Mayer quickly responded, "All that yapping got this fight made."
Baumgardner and Mayer were both in attendance, having successfully defended their titles earlier in the month.
After winning titles just one week apart on two consecutive occasions, it was time for Baumgardner and Mayer's paths to intersect.
