Good afternoon, mike orr at for eastern standard time, it’s time for knuckle up, and you know what day it is today: uh female friday and the panel and the panel and the panel yes, and we might obviously hear raheem tonight, um, wonderful, yeah and uh.
Did you notice, i sent you a little link last night to an article regarding regard which is really really funny, because the funny thing is is i was already doing her today, ah no way: yeah yeah, because um honestly we’re gon na talk about her um, her Name is jessica, mccaskill, aka, caskilla and uh.
Why i was gon na do this girl today is because um she she put the world on notice.
I believe it was september no august uh when she defeated one of my favorite uh, my favorite top five female boxers, actually uh cecilia barakas.
So let’s, let’s get into it.
Man, jessica, mccaskill uh.
You know, she’s, not young she’s, uh.
Five six 69 inch reach her professional career.
Right now is nine wins two losses: three knockouts uh.
She had an amateur boxing career that was pretty good, actually uh.
She started off her professional debut on august 22, 2015, with a technical knockout victory against nicole dunican, which is hilarious because mccaskill started boxing at 08, just for fitness and had her first amateur boat in 2009.
She had no, no, no.
You know she didn’t plan on this.
She didn’t plan on this career, but uh after climbing the ranks she won.
The 2010 golden gloves award with a 17 and one amateur record.
Mccaskill won the golden globes championship belts in 24, uh, 2014 and 2015.
So this girl man, she’s um, she’s kind of like put the world on notice.
Uh she’s an american professional boxer two-weight world champion, having held the undisputed ibo welterweight title since august 2020, wbc female super lightweight title from 2018 to 2020 in the wba fly, uh lightweight title from 2019 to 2020.
She also challenged the wba lightweight title in 2017 and as of september 2020 because of her amazing fight last last year.
She is now ranked the world’s best active female welterweight by the ring and box wreck and the third best active female pound for pound by box.
Rack and the ring, so this girl back in august put the boxing world on notice as she climb or claim the undisputed crown from cecilia barakas and a thrilling upset from the streets of downtown tulsa uh.
I don’t know if you remember watching that fight fans but um.
She came in there and and ran that fight man.
She came in from the beginning and was much busier and she came up with this.
Thrilling upset shattering barracus’s boxing prestigious record of 25 consecutive world title defenses, one that was held by legend joe lewis, and this girl out of nowhere comes in and defeats her in a majority decision.
But having having you know not so much experience under her belt.
You know a few fights small, you know great amateur career golden gloves winner, but yeah.
She came out of nowhere and and back in august, just upset barakas, who is one of my favorite female fighters and and and broke a record of 25 consecutive title defenses, and you know nobody knew who this girl was.
You know started off as doing it for training.
You know, for fitness decides, you know, get a taste of the ring.
Life uh has an amazing amateur record of 1701 and then steps into this professional world and uh she’s.
You know she climbed those ranks, quick and then became the undisputed champ at her weight class.
And you know that’s that’s a that’s a big feat.
Man there’s not too many people that have you know have that title of being the undisputed champion.
You know to hold the belts, all the all the sanctioning belts across your weight class.
That means you’re some.
You know you’re you’re, a big time.
Man and this girl, having so little fights under her belt, has already achieved so much that you know the world’s got to notice this girl, man and honestly, the best part is, is she’s going to be fighting again.
It’S already set.
She will be facing brackets for a rematch um.
Next, i believe it’s set for, may i want to say, may um no march march, i believe march 13th.
It’S set for she’ll be defending her newly crowned title as undisputed against the former champion who she took it from barakas, who is one of my favorite female fighters to watch so honestly and truthfully fight fans.
I know i’m telling you to watch this girl, but i think she’s gon na get smashed this time.
Well, i hope she does, because you know barack is she’s.
You know she’s a legend in her in in her own and honestly i was i’m very upset to see that this girl, killer cass came in and took the championships away from my girl brackets and now i get to see maracas come back and hopefully, hopefully cross My fingers there hopefully come out and you know, beat her up real nice.
The only thing was baracus wasn’t as busy in that last fight.
That’S the reason why she lost in the majority decision.
You know killer cast, she’s, not the cleanest fighter in the world, but she’s got heart and she’s got drive and you can see that from the fight that championship boat she went in there.
She pushed it all the way to the 10th round right to the bell ring.
At the end i mean this girl killer cast was so so tired and so spent.
She was just hammering for the fences by the last seconds.
You know just trying to stay busy and the fact that she did that she threw over 230 more punches than brackets and you know was much busier, and this is why she ended up with the title, but again you’re you’re, only a champion until you defend when You, when you can’t be called a champion until you defend it man, so for this girl really to be the champ she has to defend against maracas.
She might do it.
She might not.
You know, they’re, not young.
These are not young girls, man, right, they’re kind of old, i believe uh, i believe brackets is a 35 no 35 or 36.
I think killing cass is in her 30s as well right.
So you know these women.
These women are up there in their age.
You know they’re, not they’re, not the youngest ones, out there, like some of the other girls that we’ve mentioned, but you know this girl seems to be doing this.
You know doing everything right man like how can you how? How can you not deny that this girl is going to be the big thing, because you know what, with only 11 fights man and becoming the undisputed and beating my one of my favorite fighters in a majority decision, you know but watch out for her watch? This fight it’s coming up in march, watch her she’s going to defend, i believe, she’ll be able to defend i’m i’m playing both sides here, man so hard for me, because i like this girl man, i like this girl, killer, cass and jessica mccaskill.
I like her.
So much, but i was upset that she took the belt away from one of my favorite female fighters.
So you know i’m not the best one right now, man, like i’m a little torn, i don’t know who to cheer for, but i will be watching that fight.
You damn sure about that.
I don’t know, graham if you’ve ever, if you, if you’ve seen her, if you know like she’s, put the whole boxing world on notice.
I know you’ve had to hear this woman for sure yeah.
I don’t know.
I i sent you the article because i’ve seen some of her clips and i thought you might be ignoring her.
No, no, never! Never i’m not going to adore her.
I was just hating on her for a little bit there.
I was hating on her a little bit because she beat up my girl.
You know what i’m saying so i was kind of upset about that.
So but but you know what like you have to give credit where credit’s due man, this girl, 11 fights man, 11 fights and she’s already the undisputed champ in her weight class man, that’s a big big milestone in any professional boxing career.
You ask anybody fight fans out there.

Watch this girl, she’s gon na be big things.
Man she’s still fresh into the game.
She’S got the heart.
She’S got the drive.
Watch that championship match she pushes herself to the end stays busy the whole time she’s swarming, getting in on the inside, throwing those big punches and for a little girl that i you know, 140 pounds man.
She can pack a bunch i’ll.
Tell you that much man she’s she’s got some she’s got some in that fist.
Man, you can, you can see it, you can see it when she’s sitting these other girls, and you know she she took it.
She took brackets and and made an example of her, really that’s that’s it, which, which kind of upsets me you know, hits me right here, a little bit practice you’re my girl.
If you’re listening uh, i still still backing you, but you know i’m gon na secretly me cheering for her.
On the other side, though, i can’t help it man, i love these females to get in there just pound it out man, these girls, they they work hard.
Man, they work so hard, and you know you can see it in their in their videos in their fights man like these girls they get in there, man, they don’t give up, you know and they don’t stop, throwing punches until they’re on the mat.
You know, and even then some of them are throwing punches, while they’re still all dazed and confused on the mat like they.
They fight to the end and that’s what this girl did.
Man and she she did that and you know, upset one of one of boxing’s greatest records.
You know 25 title defenses, that’s huge stuff.
Man brac has set milestones.
You know in women’s boxing.
That’S why she was in you know my top five favorite women of all time, because you know she’s she’s.
She does go unnoticed.
