Undisputed world welterweight champion Jessica McCaskill, will be defending her titles to the former world champion, the Norwegian Cecilia Brækhus, in a rematch, that will be the co-star of the González vs. Estrada 2, on Saturday night, at the “American Airlines Center” in Dallas, Texas.
McCaskill (9-2 3 KOs) won the belt from the Norwegian star, in Tulsa, Oklahoma, last August, via a majority decision and becoming a two-weight world champion in just her 11th pro fight.
Brækhus (36-1 9 KOs) was denied a record night with McCaskill preventing her from recording her successful 25th world title defence. She activated the rematch clause and will now seek revenge against the new world champion.
Both fighters made it through the weigh-in without a hitch. McCaskill recorded 144.6 pounds, while Brækhus was 145 pounds.
