Mikaela Mayer dominated in her IBF and WBO super featherweight title defence at The Hangar in Costa Mesa, California, as she recorded a one-sided points win over Jennifer Han.

Mayer became WBO world champion in October 2020, and unified with the IBF crown in her last fight, an entertaining points win against Maiva Hamadouche. Han was a former world champ herself, but was coming off a heavy loss to Katie Taylor in a challenge for the undisputed world lightweight title.

It was a first professional contest in Mayer’s hometown, and she didn’t disappoint, not allowing Han into the fight, and stamping her authority early on. Han did cut Mayer over the eye in the opening round, but that was about as good as it got, as Mayer set up everything behind an impressive jab, to allow her punches to flow as a result.


Han was bloodied herself to the nose in the fourth from more accurate Mayer punches, and it was pretty much one-way traffic for the rest of the contest, with Mayer pushing her challenger back, and throwing punches in large volumes. Mayer put in a more measured performance this time after the fun win over Hamadouche, and try as she might, she couldn’t force a stoppage win, instead leaving the bout in the hands of the judges.

Two scores of 100-90, and a third at 99-91 gave Mayer the win, and she hopes this will now move her closer to meetings with the other champions in her division.

Both Maloney brothers were in action here, with the pair each recording wins. Jason Moloney, who previously unsuccessfully challenged Naoya Inoue for a world title back in 2020, recorded a wide points win over ten rounds against Francisco Pedroza Portillo. Scores of 99-91(twice) and 100-90 gave β€˜Mayhem’ victory. Jason Moloney was involved in an unsuccessful trilogy with Joshua Franco, and β€˜The Monster’ continued his rebuild here, scoring a knockout win in the eighth and final round of his clash with Gilberto Mendoza.


Giovani Santillan extended his winning record to 29 fights, as the Californian talent took a seventh round knockout win against Jeovanis Barraza at super welterweight.


Lindolfo Delgado also remained unbeaten, as he he had Gustavo David Vittori down twice en route to a second round win at welterweight. Raul Chirino was down four times in all, and eventually stopped in four at super featherweight against Luis Alberto Lopez.

Former Olympian Duke Ragan moved to 5-0, winning all six rounds of his featherweight meeting with Diuhl Olguin, and his former team mate Virginia Fuchs made her pro debut, and stopped Randee Lynn Morales in four rounds of their scheduled six at flyweight. Floyd Diaz also notched a fourth round win over Blake Quintana at super bantamweight.
