Boxing News - - 2018 Review -

The 34-year-old came from nowhere to win a world ti­tle in her Chicago home­town when she beat Erica An­abella Farias. Mccaskill has only had eight pro con­tests, two of which she lost. She was brave but out­gunned a year be­fore when she met Katie Tay­lor in 2017. But in Oc­to­ber she stepped up in weight, box­ing at su­per-light­weight for the first time and was matched against ex­pe­ri­enced, 28-fight vet­eran Farias. But Mccaskill was in­spired and won a unan­i­mous de­ci­sion and the WBC su­per-light­weight ti­tle.
