Both fighters made weigh at the weigh-in and we're all set for a fascinating evening's boxing, which Mayer's coach Al Mitchell has likened to the 1985 classic between Marvin Hagler and Tommy Hearns. 

"I think this has got a chance of being fight of the year," Mitchell said. "But I guarantee you, I think this is going to be like Tommy Hearns and Hagler. Anybody watched that fight, every minute, every second, everybody going to be watching.

Jonas, meanwhile, is relishing the challenge. "For me to class myself as one of the best in this era, I have to fight the best," she said.

Jonas' boxing career is nothing short of extraordinary. A highly-gifted amateur turned pro in 2017, she came out of retirement, after having a daughter, to dominate boxing, overcoming significant adversity to become a three-weight world champion.

It was a controversial split draw against Terri Harper – in August 2020's world title fight that many thought Jonas won – that sparked the late-career resurgence. Two years later, Jonas won world titles in two weight divisions to become the first woman to claim the British Boxing Board of Control's British Boxer of the Year Award.

Now fighting at welterweight, after becoming undisputed at junior middleweight, the 39-year-old stopped Kandi Wyatt last July.

Mayer also turned pro in 2017 and has since established herself as one of the biggest names. Now in her fifth world title fight, the 33-year-old has won fans on the opposite side of the Pond for her stiff jab and heavy hands. She goes in as the underdog but if she can hit and move, her younger legs may help her get early rounds en route to a points decision.
