Mayer Talks Fighting in England and Moving up in Weight

The Colorado Springs fighter sounded in good spirits talking to Rafael, and when asked about how she was feeling in camp, she said: “I’m doing great.” She quickly spoke about feeling much more comfortable preparing for a welterweight fight than at lower weights.

Rafael went on to ask Mayer about moving through the weights: “Just letting my body fill out the tiniest bit, it wanted to keep going. 135 was no different to 130 to me.
