Mikaela Mayer outboxed Lizbeth Crespo and won by decision
At the same event where Tyson Fury faced Tom Schwarz, American boxer Mikaela Mayer (11-0, 4 KO), a US Olympic team member that went to the quarterfinals, had the 12th fight in her professional career. A tough Bolivian opponent was waiting for her in the face of Lizbeth Crespo (13-5, 3 KO).
As expected, Crespo didn’t cause her opponent any serious troubles. Mayer had the fight in control, using her height and arm length as advantages. Mikaela used jabbing and worked with straight strikes which was enough to convince the judges in her victory.
Mikaela Mayer won by unanimous decision (100-90, 99-91, 98-92).
