Mikaela: “I want to be a world champion, I want to be the best, and I want to fight against the best. This is a bigger stage for me. This is what I wanted.”

Mikaela’s second pro fight KO highlight!

As an amateur, Mayer was a national Golden Gloves and U.S. national champion before competing in the Rio Olympics in 2016, where she made it to the women’s lightweight quarterfinals. She made her pro debut at the age of 27 in her hometown of Los Angeles on August 5th where Mayer quickly overpowered her opponent Figueroa. She staggered Figueroa with a right hand in the 1st round, then scored a knockdown with a series of punches moments later and the referee stopped the fight at 1:15 resulting in a TKO victory for Mayer.

Since then, Mayer has improved her record to 5-0 with 3 KOs. She got a quick KO on March 10, 2018 at the StubHub Center when she took on veteran Maria Semertzoglou (7-3). Mayer is currently trained by veteran trainer and 1996 U.S. Olympic head coach Al Mitchell. In an interview with ESPN Mitchel explained that “She’s got confidence. She listens. She’s humble. She’s what you want (in a fighter).” Mikaela has natural talent, strong boxing skills, footwork, speed, and power. She is a force to be reckoned with and she is determined to become a champion.

She had a dominant performance at MSG on 5/12, winning UD 60-54.
