Rio Olympian and currently signed to Top Rank, Mikaela Mayer is ready to take women’s boxing is whole another level. Mikaela Mayer’s vision to become a pioneer in fighting was clouded by some dubious judging in the Rio Olympics. But by aligning with a powerful promoter, she has found her focus once more.

Mayer, raised in Woodland Hills, left the 2016 Summer Games in Rio de Janeiro slightly distraught by scoring that left her on the short end of a narrow majority decision loss to Russia’s Anastasia Belyakova. Later in the competition, a handful of Olympic boxing judges were sent home after two other highly questionable victories by Russian males.
