Britain’s Jonas claimed the title with an 8th-round TKO win against the overmatched Kandi Wyatt earlier this year.

Mayer has had two tune-ups in the UK at 135 and 140 since her defeat to Baumgardner last October. She now moves up another weight class for the Jonas fight – a three-weight jump from her last significant fight.

The American last appeared on a Sky Sports broadcast in September where Jonas was commentating and the general takeaway from there was that a fight between the pair could be made easily enough.

Mayer will struggle to land big fights from 135-147 as most of the belts are tied up at Matchroom so she has to take a major jump to land another marquee fight.
