Jessica McCaskill and Cecelia Brækhus will rematch for the undisputed World Welterweight title on a stacked card on March 13 at the American Airlines Center in Dallas. The stacked card will be live worldwide on DAZN, topped by the rematch between Juan Francisco Estrada and Roman ‘Chocolatito’ Gonzalez.


McCaskill (9-2 3 KOs) ripped the belts from the Norwegian star on the streets of downtown Tulsa, Oklahoma in August. As a result, snapping the long-standing unbeaten streak via majority decision and becoming a two-weight champion in eleven fights.

Brækhus (36-1 9 KOs) was denied a record-breaking night with McCaskill. In defeat, she was prevented recording her 25th consecutive successful World title defense. However, she activated the rematch clause and will now go for revenge in the Lone Star state against the Chicagoan. But McCaskill was succinct in her belief that the belts will remain hers.

“I interrupted her career in the first fight. I will end her career in the rematch.”
