Mikaela Mayer demands a rematch or a rematch with Katie Taylor following a split decision loss to Alycia Baumgardner | ‘I believe I won’
Baumgardner added the WBO and IBF belts to her WBC super-featherweight title after a hard-fought fight, with two judges scoring it 96-95 in her favor and the third official scoring it 97-93 in Mayer’s favor, prompting a stunned reaction from Mayer. Mayer, speaking to Sky Sports for the first time since the fight, reiterated her belief that she did enough to win at The O2.
“I do believe I won strongly,” “I was very confident, my corner was confident, and you know my corner, my coach, he doesn’t mess around and he tells me the truth. “We stuck to the game plan, I was out-boxing her and I clearly believe I won that decision. It is disappointing.
“When that second score came in and one was for me and one was for her, I was like ‘what do you mean?’ ” I saw her face at the ends of those rounds and she was defeated, tired, moving, running, she knew she didn’t win that fight and you could see it in her face she wasn’t confident.
“I really feel like my legacy, what I have always wanted my legacy to be is somebody who challenges the best and puts it all on the line and makes the biggest fights possible and, although I didn’t get the decision yesterday, that doesn’t change that goal for me.
“I still want the biggest fights and, if Baumgardner doesn’t want to give me a rematch which she said yesterday, I think she should because I think I deserve a rematch and I think I won and Mayer still expects to face Irish star Katie Taylor if Baumgardner sticks to her intention to fight WBA champion, Hyun Mi Choi, next.
“I still want Katie Taylor, and I believe I deserve it,” she continued. “She (Baumgardner) understands she lost, I truly feel she lost, but I think it will change because where else can she earn that sort of money and the people want to see it?” At the end of the day, it is all about the fans and entertainment.
“I hope she becomes the champion she deserves to be and gives me another chance to compete in front of the people.” If she believes that she is the best she will give that to me, but if not, Mayer still expects to face Irish star Katie Taylor if Baumgardner sticks to her intention to fight WBA champion, Hyun Mi Choi, next.
