Yes, Mikaela Joslin Mayer passed the test in the final analysis at The Theater, Virgin Hotels on Saturday having defended her WBO junior lightweight title against Erica Farias via unanimous decision [98-92 2x and 97-93].
But, the former two-weight world champion [Erica Farias] gave the American a true hell of a time in the ring throughout the bout.
Mayer [15-0, 5 KOs], one of female boxing’s most recognizable names, bested the most seasoned opponent of her career, a relentless woman who has fought in 19 world title fights and threw 400 punches in 10 rounds.
The American boxer [Mayer] outlanded Farias 118-86 has now set her sights on IBF world champion – Maïva Hamadouche.
“I was just waiting to get through this fight to get to Maïva. Remind her that I’ll see her soon,” Mayer called out Hamadouche in her post fight interview.
Mikaela Mayer and Maïva Hamadouche are scheduled to fight in a unification bout later this year.
