The incident took place on Saturday evening at The Hanger in Costa Mesa, California. While Mikaela Mayer retained her IBF and WBO Junior Lightweight titles as usual, she defeated Jennifer Han in a 10-round decision at one of ESPN's main events in Costa Mesa, California, in one of Saturday's busiest fights. Was a very important and exciting.
You know, she grew up in Southern California, but she had to leave her hometown to pursue her boxing career. After an Olympic birth, almost five years as an unbeaten pro, and a pair of world titles, Mayer finally wrote back home to her winning championship.
This was Mayer's third title defense (17-0, 5 KOs) and her first as a United World Champio
This was Mayer's first professional competition in her hometown, and he did not disappoint, did not allow Han to go to war, and soon sealed her authority. Han cut Mayer above the eye in the first round, but it was as good as Mayer arranging everything behind an impressive job, to let her punch flow.
Han (18-5-1, 1 KO) who sometimes tried to attack but never threatened Mayer. For ESPN.com's Pound-to-Pound ranking, she's at the top of the list.
In the fourth, blood flowed from Mayer's more accurate punches to Han's nose, and it was fairly one-way traffic for the rest of the contest. Mayer pushed her challenger back, and threw a large amount of punches. Mayer showed a more measured performance this time around after an interesting win over Hamadouche, and try not to force a stoppage victory instead of leaving the competition in the hands of the judges.
Two scores of 100-90 and a third score of 99-91 helped Mayer win, and he hopes it will now bring him closer to meeting the other champions in her division.
Mayer, 31, still wants to compete with fellow 130-lb title holders Alicia Boomgarder and Hyun Mi Choi, but says she is ready to go 135 and face the undisputed title bout winner on April 30. Wants to do, where Katie Taylor defended herself. Amanda Serrano in Madison Square Garden.
"I'm very clear about the fact that I want to go undisputed at 130. Boomgardner and Choi, I'm calling them, I want that fight," Mayer said. "But if they don't give me this fight in time, I'll go upstairs and challenge the winner of Serrano vs. Katie Taylor."
