Jessica McCaskill profile & record

12-3-1 (5 KOs)

The St Louis fighter started her amateur career in 2008, before becoming an investment banker in Chicago in 2012.

After a 17-1 amateur record, Jessica McCaskill turned professional in 2015, at the age of 31, with her first fight being a second-round TKO of Tyrea Nichole Duncan.

Although she lost her second fight on a split decision to fellow American Katonya Fisher, she then won her next four professional fights.

She lost to Irish star Taylor in London in December 2017, but bounced back to beat Erica Farias in Chicago in October 2018 to claim the WBC super-lightweight title.

In August 2020, McCaskill added the WBA, WBC, IBF, WBO and IBO welterweight titles with a victory over Norway’s Cecila Braekhus.

The 39-year-old lost her light-welterweight titles after a points defeat to Chantelle Cameron in November 2022. Her most recent fight came in September 2023, with a draw against Sandy Ryan.
