Jessica McCaskill (4-1) returns on July 29th to the UIC Pavilion, and details regarding her future opponent have not yet been announced. According to the Body Shot Boxing Club, she will be competing for a title shot.
It was previously rumored that McCaskill could possibly be facing Irish Olympian Katie Taylor in the future according to an article previously published by Independent.ie, an Irish online new website. However, representatives from The Body Shot Boxing Club (where McCaskill trains), confirmed that McCaskill has not yet been offered a fight with Taylor. This could eventually change though as Taylor is expected to make her US Debut next month in Las Vegas on the undercard of Kovalev-Ward.
McCaskill is currently ranked #1 in the women's lightweight category on BoxRec, while Taylor is ranked #7. Although negotiations have not yet been initiated, this fight could certainly be on the horizon. Between McCaskill's aggressive, powerful brawling style and Taylor's speed, this would be an interesting and action packed match up.
Let's see whom McCaskill faces next.
