Jessica McCaskill, an inspirational story

Jessica, who is without a doubt one of the best boxers out there today, is listed as the third best pound for pound by Boxrec.

The American fighter will face Alma Ibarra from Monterrey on June 25 in San Antonio, Texas, where she will defend her world titles for the third time. However, to get to where she is today, “Mc Killa” has not travelled an easy road.

Mc Caskill’s childhood had complicated moments since she was little, which represented enormous challenges that spurred her to get ahead as a strong and resilient woman.

Raised in St. Louis by her great aunt, they lived through challenging  situations,having to sleep in the back of a church. From the age of eight, she lived through extreme situations that forced her to mature very quickly and overcome adversity, since she had to do everything to survive and eat every day.

It wasn’t until 2012 that she traveled to Chicago when she found a job at RJ O’Brien & Associates as a regulatory reporting analyst, which gave her the opportunity to explore the world of boxing.

She currently has a degree in Finance and is considered one of the best boxers of the moment, being the undisputed welterweight champion with a record of 11-2-0, (2KO).
