Mikaela Mayer

At the age of 28, Mikaela is a top female prospect at 130 pounds. Before her debut, she was an amateur standout at the elite international level in the lightweight division.

She has fought six times in her first 11 months as a pro – all wins, three by knockout.

In her last fight on June 30 in Oklahoma City she won a six-round unanimous decision against Sheena Kaine.

ESPN.com’s Dan Rafael reported from ringside [excerpts]: 2016 U.S. Olympian Mikaela Mayer shut out Sheena Kaine, of Edmonton, Canada, in their women’s lightweight bout.

All three judges had 60-53 for Mayer, who connected with clean right hand that dropped Kaine with a little over a minute left in the second round. Mayer landed many right hands that wobbled Kaine throughout the fight. [End Rafael item]

In her post-fight interview, Mikaela said, “It was definitely a different fight than I’ve ever had. She was taller than me and had more strength than most of the girls I’ve fought. She’s not technically sound, but when she did throw her shots it was a good thing my hands were up because I could definitely feel them.

“This was a great learning experience.”

Mikaela is managed by George Ruiz, CEO of Intelligent Arts & Artists, and trained by Al Mitchell and Coach Kay Karoma. She boasts a sterling amateur resume which includes being a 2016 champion in the USA Boxing Elite Nationals, the America Olympic Qualifiers, and the U.S. Olympic Team Trials.

“Mikaela’s talent and personality translates to unique marketability. Not only are we confident she will succeed as a professional fighter, but she will elevate the women’s boxing category,” said Todd duBoef, president of Top Rank. “Fighting at an elite level as an amateur has prepared her for transitioning to the professional ranks.”

“As much as I loved competing for Team USA, I am incredibly excited for this next step in my career. When I sat down with Top Rank, they were the first promotion company that truly made me feel like they shared my vision for how I could help grow the sport,” said Mayer.

“Having the best promoter in the world supporting and believing in not just me, but in women’s boxing, is the fulfillment of a dream that began when I first put on boxing gloves. I am thrilled about our new partnership and the possibilities of what we can accomplish on this journey together.”
