Jessica McCaskill To Defend Welterweight Titles Against Lauren Price

Unified world champion Jessica McCaskill will take on Welsh star Lauren Price in her next fight.

Promoter Boxxer have yet to announce the venue and date, but said McCaskill – who holds WBA and IBO straps – steps into the “dragon’s den” and the American fighter is in the UK to announce the contest and the finer details at a press conference in Cardiff, Wales, tomorrow.

Chicago’s McCaskill, 39, is The Ring magazine’s welterweight champion, and is 12-3-1 (5 KOs) as a pro. In her last two fights, she lost to Chantelle Cameron in Dubai in late 2022 and was awarded a draw against Sandy Ryan in Florida last September.

Twenty-nine-year-old southpaw Price, 6-0 (1 KO), turned pro after winning gold at the 2020 Olympics, in the same year that McCaskill dethroned long-reigning champion Cecilia Braekhaus.
