Jessica McCaskill and Chantelle Cameron Promise Pain to Come!
In their next prizefight Jessica “CasKilla” McCaskill (12-2, 5 KO’s) will collide with unified champion Chantelle “Il Capo” Cameron (16-0, 8 KO’s). The two will compete for undisputed status in Abu Dhabi live on DAZN at 1:30pm EST. Naturally, both women are confident in their impending victory. At the final presser heading into the fight, both came promising to put the hurt on the other!
“I’m very excited about the opportunity, it’s definitely a dream come true. Once you get to that level, obviously you start thinking, ‘okay what’s the next biggest thing?’ […] Chantelle, you really don’t understand what you’ve gotten yourself into on Saturday. The last girl I fought, she begged her coach to stop the fight. She argued with her coach after three rounds because she thought she was going to die…now I’m moving down in weight. I hope you don’t think I’m not going to bring that power. It’s coming Saturday…this is the hurt business and I am very good at my job.”Jessica McCaskill, undisputed welterweight champion
Given the talent and past accomplishments, there is no wonder why they think highly of themselves. To her credit, CasKilla is already the undisputed welterweight champion and has been for the past two years. McCaskill, 38, first dethroned boxing phenomenon Cecilia Braekhus to become undisputed and has since defended the titles on three separate occasions. Hopes of achieving this same accomplishment in a different division has provided CasKilla potent motivation.
While this is Cameron’s first attempt at becoming undisputed, she is already technically a multi-division champion. This due to capturing the secondary WBC silver and IBO straps at lightweight. During her tenure at super lightweight however, Cameron, 31, did outpoint Adriana dos Santos Araujo to claim the vacant WBC 140-pound title on October 4, 2020. Two fights later, the UK native bested Mary McGee to wrench the IBF title from her grasp. So, with all on the line, there is little doubt these two champions will provide all out action!
“Jessica, you think you’re going to hurt me? When I land on your chin, your face is going to drop. I’m telling you now, you’ll see. Anyway, talk is cheap. I’ve done all my hard work, I’m enjoying this week and I’m enjoying this moment. Bring on Saturday and shutting her up.”Chantelle Cameron, unified junior welterweight champion
