Undefeated 2016 U.S. Olympian junior lightweight Mikaela Mayer (13-0, 5 KOs) scored a one-sided ten round unanimous decision over former world title challenger Helen Joseph (17-5-2, 10 KOs) on Tuesday night inside “The Bubble” at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. Mayer in command all the way. Scores were 99-91, 100-90, 100-90.

Mayer said after the fight, “Bob Arum said ‘Great fight,’ and that the next one will be for the title. We’ve been trying to get a world title fight for a while now. I said, ‘Don’t let Eddie Hearn [outbid] us.”

Middleweight “Cassius” Clay Collard (8-2-3, 2 KOs) smashed LT “Smash” Nelson (5-4, 4 KOs) in two-one-sided rounds. Collard dropped Nelson once in round one and twice in round two. The bout was waved off after more punishment at 1:57. Collard 4-0 in 2020.

“I showed my boxing skills in there tonight. I’m unorthodox, but I get the job done,” Collard said. “As soon as Top Rank wants me back, I’ll be ready. Next month on ESPN, let’s go!”
