  • Oh no! Jessica McCaskill on the card…..YUCK! After watching Taylor vs Serrano you’ll see how glaring her lack of fundamentals and skill set really is! She’s lucky to be in such a weak division right now!!

    • I dont support adding womens fight cards to the men cards. They should make women Boxing cards to see if they have an actual audience and can stand on their own. If not, than no use in continuing to shove it down our throats. Trying to create attractions in woman Boxing is taking up valuable airtime. If they dont sit down on their punches like Christy Martin or look like Seniesa Estrada Im prob not gonna watch. The crowd cheer them on because they give great effort but there’s not much “sweet science” to it.

      • I hope so Lucie! I unlike others am a fan of women’s boxing when the skill set is undeniable! Taylor, Serrano, Estrada, Mayer and even Shields are fun to watch, especially when matched fairly evenly! McCaskill is just so hard to watch. Too sloppy!!

        • Oh I understand. She caught Cecilia at the end of the line and got the wins, but she’s definitely crude as hell. But she’ll be 38 shortly, maybe Ibarra is catching her at the end of hers. And she called out Serrano not too long ago, maybe Serrano is interested in winning a belt in a…. 10th division or whatever it is now.
