MIKAELA MAYER wishes to return to the UK for big money battles, world title belts and Primark bargains.
The 31-year-old world super featherweight champion visited Cardiff and London last month while working as a commentator for Sky Sports.
And – after defending against Jennifer Han in her native California on Saturday – the 16-0 bombshell wants a British comeback so she can delight our dedicated boxing fans and fill her wardrobe with deals.
Mayer told SunSport: “I loved my trip to the UK, I only managed a pint because I was so busy but I plan to come back soon to fight one of your champions.
“British boxing fans are among the best in the world, it feels like boxing is their #1 sport, while in the US boxing is competing for attention with American football, baseball, basketball, ice hockey and even Hollywood.
“I want to go uncontested at super featherweight, but getting the other two champions to face me is proving annoyingly difficult so I’m not hanging around, and if there’s bigger fights, at heavier weights, then I’m up for it go and grab her.
“If that’s Katie Taylor’s winner against Amanda Serrano or Chantelle Cameron, then great.
“It gives me an excuse to come back and raid Primark again because I’ve bought some great stuff over there and we don’t have it in America, so I can kill two birds with one stone.”
Ireland’s undisputed lightweight queen Taylor will defend her titles against SEVEN weight champion Serrano on April 30 in New York.
And Cameron from Northampton has two of the four major world super lightweight titles.
Mayer is watching both closely as she ponders her next move after November’s breakout win over Maiva Hamadouche.

She said: “I bought my ticket for Taylor vs Serrano and I will be ringside.
“I would like to fight the winner. I have the perfect body type to move up a few weight classes. I want to be unchallenged in my field, but I’m not going to sit and wait.
“It feels like we’re in a golden age of women’s boxing, we have a lot of great champions and more importantly most of these girls want to have the biggest and best fights.”
Not many boxers would brag about their fondness for Primark, but Mayer differs from the label-loving cliché fighter on Instagram flashing the cash.
“I don’t own a single designer piece – of anything,” she said proudly.
“No designer shoes, watches, belts, purses, handbags, anything.
“I invest my money in assets that I know will grow, I buy real estate and stocks. I’m not “that guy” at all.
“I have learned how to properly invest and value my money. If I were a male fighter I would have millions now, but I still wouldn’t have screwed it all up.
“I make my money the hardest way, so I don’t get a chance to waste any of it.”
Watch Mayer vs Han on Sky Sports in the early hours of Sunday morning.
