Ewa Brodnicka sent a stern warning to undefeated Mikaela Mayer ahead of the mandatory WBO title defense scheduled to take place this weekend inside the MGM Grand Conference Center in Nevada.
Mayer has criticized Brodnicka in the past and has taken the limelight with her trash-talking. Mikaela Mayer is the favorite going into this fight.
The former Olympian has looked absolutely incredible ever since her professional debut and will look to cement herself as one of the best when she takes on the undefeated champion.
Brodnicka has ruled the junior-lightweight division for over four years now. Mayer could look at etching history if she gets past Brodnicka this weekend. Needless to say, one boxer will be stripped of her undefeated streak.
Earlier, Mayer had revealed that she was looking at a fight against Eva Wahlstrom. However, the undefeated boxer landed a fight against Ewa Brodnicka after she was named a mandatory challenger for the WBO belt.
“I think this fight is gonna happen anyway, even if it wasn’t mandatory. I am very happy that this fight is going forward. We put a very good spectator, I expect a good fight war. Also, pure boxing.
“I told Mikaela, I bring you a belt, but I only bring it, you can watch it. I am not gonna give you this belt,” Brodnicka said in the recently concluded press-conference head of the much-anticipated showdown.
Mayer stated that she is more experienced than Brodnicka, despite such a short professional career. However, having fought at the Olympics, the undefeated boxer believes that her amateur career will give her an edge over the current WBO junior lightweight champion of the world. Brodnicka expects a war against Mikaela Mayer this weekend and will look to prove why she is the best boxer in the lightweight division right now.
Despite such a stellar record and having defended her WBO title for a record six times, Brodnicka has never competed inside the United States. Ahead of the hugely anticipated matchup, Brodnicka believes that she will put up a performance that will draw more attention and respect to female boxing.
“Everybody is nice. I love America. The USA. I was here in Las Vegas like four years ago. Only for some sparring and preparation. That was my dream to fight in the USA. I put my belt on the line six times, for me, one more time fight.
I want to prove that female boxing is very tough. And I hope that we prove it, the girls deserve, you know, fight on some huge event like this today,” Brodnicka added.
Will Mikaela Mayer snap Ewa Brodnicka off her 18 fight win-streak? Or will Brodnicka once again prove why she is the best in her division with a successful seventh title defense? Come Oct. 31, everything will be answered as two of the best will step inside the boxing ring.
