What has been said
Mayer: "That's what it's always been about to me, Baumgardner seems to have taken it all a lot more personally,"
"She seems very emotional, she seems to hate me a lot, probably because she's been wanting to fight me for a long time because I've always been the No 1 girl of this division in the amateurs and now in the pros.
"But for me it's all about going undisputed like I plan to, when I set out to do something I do it and I have been going after every single champion.
"If you don't like me as a fighter that's fine but you can't say I haven't tried to make the biggest fights because that's what I've done and this is just one step towards getting that undisputed title."
Baumgardner: "She gets so antsy and stuff I know I am under her skin but it is great,"
"You need to tune into this fight because it is going ton be a fight worth watching. You have two world champions, one as an underdog, one as the favourite and again, the underdog always prevails.
"I showed that when I fought Terri Harper and became world champion and you will see that when I beat Mikaela Mayer Saturday night."
