IBF Ends Jesscia McCaskill Undisputed Reign has confirmed that Jessica “CasKilla” McCaskill (12-3, 5KO) lost the undisputed welterweight status following the loss to undisputed junior welterweight champion Chantelle “Il Capo” Cameron (17-0, 8KO).

On November 5, 2022, McCaskill moved down to compete for the undisputed junior welterweight crown against Cameron. She went on to lose the contest unanimously, but it came at a very high price.

Thoughts within the boxing world were she would retain undisputed status since none of the welterweight titles were on the line. According to a representative of the IBF, a champion is allowed to fight above their weight, not below it. Therefore, the organization removed her as their champion.

A few days after the Cameron loss, McCaskill avoided a similar situation when the WBO came knocking for their title due to a uniquely agreed-upon condition.


There is a way the 38-year-old Chicagoan can reclaim the undisputed crown. According to the WBC, a purse bid will be held for a fight with mandatory challenger, Ivana Habazin January 30.

Ironically, the two top spots in the IBF rankings are held by McCaskill and Habazin. If so desired, the organization can add the vacant title in the match, with the winner emerging as undisputed.

The IBF did this for former junior middleweight champion Marie Eve Dicaire. After losing the title to multi-divisional undisputed champion Claressa Shields, Dicaire won back the vacant title against Cynthia Lozano due to Shields exiting the division. will keep an eye on this story for further developments.
