Mayer confronts Baumgardner in struggle for reunification


Mikaela Mayer and Alycia Baumgardner have been on social media for months.

Alycia Baumgardner and Mikaela Mayer have reached an agreement on the terms of a unified super featherweight bout later this year.

Mayer, 31, is a WBO, IBF and Ring magazine champion and Baumgardner, 28, holds WBC and IBO titles.

Unbeaten Mayer’s promoter, Top Rank, will oversee events expected to take place in the United States.

Top Rank’s Bob Arum said, “Mikaela Mayer’s tremendous talent is comparable to her tremendous ambition.”

“She wants the biggest game and Alycia Baumgardner is a worthy champion.

“This is a huge event and one of the most anticipated matchups in women’s boxing.”

The announcement comes after Mayer and Baumgardner have been on social media for months.

While Mayer is undefeated in 17 professional matches, with just one loss, Baumgardner came off one of the comebacks of 2021 when he KO’d England’s Terri Harper at Sheffield last November to become WBC champions.

The fight joins a growing list of exciting women’s fights expected to take place this year, including a solid middleweight bout between Savannah Marshall and Claressa Shields as well as a rematch between Katie Taylor and Amanda Serrano.
