Natasha Jonas Eyes Grand Farewell in 2024, Mayer Rematch Looms Large"

In the aftermath of her thrilling victory over Mikaela Mayer in Liverpool, boxing sensation Natasha Jonas hints that 2024 might mark the end of her storied career. The 39-year-old, who successfully defended her IBF welterweight crown, aims to make this final chapter the best in her book.

Jonas secured a split decision win, but Mayer, unimpressed with the scorecards, seeks a rematch. Despite the close contest, Jonas acknowledges Mayer’s frustrations and expresses a willingness to make the rematch happen, emphasizing her desire to be a stand-up champion.

“I understand how she will be feeling. I’ve been there,” says Jonas, a 2012 Olympian. Mayer, feeling she did enough to win, hopes for another shot at the belt, urging Jonas to be the stand-up champ she is known to be.

As Jonas contemplates the final stretch of her career, her trainer, Joe Gallagher, suggests a potential showdown with Katie Taylor, who holds a historic win over Jonas from the 2012 Olympics. However, logistical challenges and Taylor’s career direction make this option unlikely.

Anfield, the dream venue for Jonas, appears distant due to scheduling conflicts. A more feasible option is a clash with Jessica McCaskill, the WBA, WBC, and WBO welterweight champion. McCaskill, coming off a draw with Jonas’ compatriot Sandy Ryan, is a matchup Jonas desires.

“McCaskill is a fight I want,” asserts Jonas, possibly eyeing the opportunity to fulfill her dream of fighting in America. As the final chapter of Natasha Jonas’ remarkable career unfolds, fans eagerly anticipate the decisions and matchups that will shape her grand farewell in 2024.
