Michaela Meyer and Alicia Baumgardner are preparing for a boxing match after slaughtering each other on social media.

The top tier announced on Monday that the pair will compete among the lightweight youngsters. Moreover, Meyer will retain the WBO, IBF and Ring titles, while Baumgardner will risk his WBC title.

There has been no confirmation on dates and location. Though the top ranking has confirmed bookings for “late summer / early fall”. Preliminary reports indicate that the game will be broadcast on ESPN in the US and Sky Sports in the UK.

“Michaela Meyer’s incredible talent matches her ambition,” said top-ranked Bob Arum. “She wants the most intense fights and Alicia Baumgardner is a worthy champion. It’s a big event and one of the most anticipated in women’s boxing.”

Meyer is a 2016 Olympic and three-time U.S. national boxing champion. Meyer made his 2017 debut and won the WBC NABF Featherweight Championship in 2018. She defeated Eva Brodnicka for the WBO Junior WBO title in 2020. She defended her title against Erica Parias in June 2021 and won the WBO junior-lightweight. In November of that year, she defeated Mawa Hamadouche.

Meyer’s last fight was a unanimous decision against Jennifer Hahn in April.

The 2014 National Gold Glove Champion, Baum Gardner, made his 2017 debut. International Featherweight WBC champion Baum Gardner lost to Christina Leinardetto in 2018, and she has since won six in a row. In November 2021, Baumgardner won the WBC title as a strong man over Terry Harper with one punch. The victory put him on stage.

Baumgardner defended Edith Soledad Matisse in April and defeated him unanimously.

There were rumors that Baumgardner would take WBA champion Choi Hyun-mi in the summer, but nothing came of it. The WBA champion last played in the league in 2020. Also, his status is currently unknown. Baumgardner and Meir have not known each other in recent months. They were also involved in a war of words on social media.

The battle of Baumgardner and Meyer came after Katie Taylor and Amanda Serrano fought for the light gold in Madison Square Garden.
