Jessica McCaskill Calls Out Chantelle Cameron in Hunt for Greater Challenges
After beating up and making Alma Ibarra (10-2, 5KOs) quit on her stool, undisputed women’s 147-pound champion Jessica “CasKilla” McCaskill (12-2, 2KOs) is seemingly done at welterweight. Instead, she has turned her attention towards an opponent at a lower weight class in unified 140-pound champion Chantelle Cameron (16-0, 8KOs), who ironically wants to face her at 147 for undisputed.
However, in the post-fight interview, McCaskill made it clear that while she’s very interested in a fight with Cameron, it would likely have to come in the junior welterweight division. She had the following to say about Cameron and her time as a welterweight likely coming to an end:
CASKILLA SENDS A MESSAGE TO CAMERON!
“Call me girl! We’ve been kinda doing this round about thing since about 2018. I called her out. She didn’t want anything to do with me. I got my first WBC belt and then she called me out. We had different plans, and now she’s done spectacular in her career. We’re doing so well at 147, but like you said, I think it’s time to move back down to 140. There are some great fights at 140. 147 doesn’t interest me! So yeah, Ray Ramos is going to hook that up.”
The harsh truth about the women’s welterweight division is that it’s not a division loaded with talented top-end fighters. Having accomplished the most prestigious feat you can accomplish as an active fighter by becoming undisputed, McCaskill is at the point where she wants big-money legacy fights.
A drop down in weight and a showdown with unbeaten two-belt champion Cameron would be a terrific fight and an opportunity for both ladies. Will it happen? Only time will tell.
