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.

Ever since turning pro, Mayer has been killing it in the boxing ring, he recently beat Vannesa Bradford in Omaha on the undercard of Crawford vs Benavidez to win the NABF super featherweight title.

She recently appeared on The Ariel Helwani Show, where he revealed that she was very close to signing with Bellator MMA.

She revealed that she was literally one or two weeks away from signing with Bellator MMA because Bellator would allow her to do Boxing and give her time to train for MMA. The reason being there was no major boxing promoter offering contracts and signing bonuses to female boxers. But her manager got her to sign with Top Rank Promotions. However, she revealed that she was really interested in fighting in Bellator.
