Price vs. McCaskill

Price vs. McCaskill

Lauren Price, with an Olympic gold tucked under her belt, is diving headfirst into the deep end, challenging Jessica McCaskill for a shiny trio of welterweight belts in Cardiff. Picture this: a sea of fans, the buzz of anticipation, and the promise of a fight that could scribble Price’s name in the history books… again. The stage? The bustling Utilita Arena. The date? Mark it – May 11th. Where to catch this spectacle? Sky Sports or Peacock, take your pick.

From kicking footballs for Wales to trading punches in the ring, Price’s journey is nothing short of a screenplay waiting to be written. Yet, in this chapter, she faces a titan in McCaskill – a seasoned warrior with belts to her name and a track record that screams ‘tough as nails.’ McCaskill’s resume? A smorgasbord of titles across divisions and a claim to fame for dethroning the long-reigning Cecilia Brækhus.

With Cardiff set to erupt in cheers, can Price harness the home advantage and etch her name into the annals of Welsh boxing history? Or will McCaskill’s blend of experience and tenacity prove too formidable a hurdle? One thing’s for sure – this isn’t just a fight; it’s a blockbuster waiting to unfold. So, grab your popcorn (or boxing gloves), and get ready for a showdown that promises fireworks, drama, and maybe, just maybe, a fairy tale ending for Price.

Lauren Price MBE said: “I’m over the moon for this fight to finally be getting announced. I know Ben Shalom and my team have been working very hard behind the scenes to make this happen so I just want to say a big thank you to them.

“The fact it’s in Cardiff is amazing. I’ve not boxed there since I first started out which was a good few years back now. I can’t wait to put on a show in front of my friends, family and Welsh supporters who have been great in supporting me throughout my career. It’ll be an incredible night for sure, to beat the reigning champion in Wales and keep the world titles here will be some feeling!

“Jessica McCaskill is the current champion. She’s game, experienced and strong but I’ll be 100% ready for whatever she brings on the night. I believe in my ability. I back myself and like I said earlier, I can’t wait to bring those world titles back home to Wales, and hopefully this will line me up to bring more massive nights back to Wales in the near future.”

Jessica McCaskill said: “I don’t know much about Price but when it comes to fighters from the UK the expectation is usually lots of back pedalling and holding. I don’t know if this will be the case but coming to Wales means Price is hopefully going to want to put on a good show. That’s exactly what I want because I plan on doing the same. I’m here to steal all of her fans. I’m going to show her what it takes to be a champion and the belts will be coming back to America with me.”
