Mayer Is Too Big and Too Good

Size matters. And at 5-foot-9 with a 66½-inch reach, Mayer is one of the biggest boxers in her weight class. She typically towers over her opponents and is keen on using her advantages namely with straight punches and jabs. The 32-year-old has both the physical gifts and skills to dominate. But it’s her mentality that makes her dominant.

Mayer constantly fights with a chip on her shoulder. She tends to be restless as she constantly seeks challenges and wants to “mix it up” with her opponent. However, she often outguns her opponents so it becomes a one-sided performance on her end.

Her online gambling supporters may get a bit sweaty if she decides to throw down with Baumgardner. But Mayer has, thus far, showed a strong chin. At this point, it’s possible for her to take it up a notch when she feels Baumgardner’s power.

Baumgardner Is Not Short on Belief

Baumgardner may be the hardest puncher in women’s boxing. She has seven knockouts and most of them look vicious. But if that’s all she had, she would not be the WBC and IBO super featherweight champion. She put on a clinic against Edith Soledad Matthysse, which was a contrast to her knockout win over Terri Harper.

Indeed, Baumgardner has the skills to win bouts without relying on her power. And she’ll have to resist the urge to try to knock out Mayer as that may expose her. While Baumgardner is prolific, Mayer is the superior boxer technically. Baumgardner has also not fought a boxer quite at the level of Mayer.

For Baumgardner to pull off this upset, she’ll have to take her tactical game to the next level. If she and her team have done that, she may well cash as another underdog when betting online.

Mayer vs Baumgardner Head-to-Head

Like in most of her bouts, Mayer will be the bigger boxer here as she is three inches taller than Baumgardner. The latter is four years younger. Mayer is 4-0 in title fights while Baumgardner is 2-0.

Mayer vs Baumgardner Prediction

They say “power is the great equalizer” and thanks to that, Baumgardner is not as big of an underdog as she should be. Mayer is a tactical boxer but she will engage in a bit of a firefight if she feels like it. When that happens, Baumgardner has a decent chance of hurting Mayer.

However, this is women’s boxing and it is two-minute rounds. That’s not as much time to finish a boxer and Mayer will have plenty of opportunities to recover should she get hurt. And on the flip side, if Mayer has her way, she’ll keep Baumgardner on the outside and pick her apart. This is a big step up for Baumgardner thus Mayer should turn her back.
