Katie Taylor To Face McCaskill Next Month


Katie Taylor will defend her WBA world lightweight title against American Jessica McCaskill in Bethnal Green, London on Wednesday, December 13th.

Taylor, 31, who won an Olympic gold medal for Ireland at the 2012 Olympics, has won all seven of her fights since turning professional in October 2016.

She clinched the WBA title with a points victory over Argentina’s Anahi Sanchez in Cardiff last month on the undercard of Anthony Joshua vs Carlos Takam.

McCaskill, 5-1 3KO, has won her last four consecutive outings since suffering her lone defeat to Katonya Fisher by split decision in June of 2016.
