Appearing on TMZ Sports, Mone was asked what's next for her as the champion.

"Besides taking it on carpets, autograph signings, all over the world, I'm going to see what little promotions I can pop up to. I know next on my plate is April 8 in Tokyo, Japan for Sakura Genesis. I have a girl named AZM calling me out, so I've been putting the offer on the table of who is next on the list, I want to see who is ready for Mercedes Mone because I turn down to nobody. I'm always here for the check, I'm always here for the bag. Whoever has the biggest bag is where I'm going to go," she said.
