Price's promoter Ben Shalom feels now is the right time for her to challenge for a maiden world title

McCaskill clinched undisputed welterweight supremacy on August 15 2022 as she became the first person to beat Cecilia Braekhus, going on to also win the rematch a year later. She has since endured a unanimous decision loss to Chantelle Cameron in 2022, and most recently played out a split decision draw against Sandy Ryan.

Price boasts a highly decorated amateur record having previously reigned as Olympic, World, European and Commonwealth Games middleweight champion.

Her success in the ring has followed up success as a four-time world champion kickboxer, as well as a career playing football for Cardiff City and Wales.

The 29-year-old is undefeated at 6-0 since making her professional debut against Valgerdur Gudstensdottir in June 2022. She beat Kirstie Bavington in May 2023 to claim the inaugural British female welterweight title, and most recently recorded a points victory against Silvia Bortot in December 2023.

After it was announced that Price will challenge for her first world title when she takes on McCaskill, the Chicago boxer says this is the opportunity for the British welterweight to put on a show

Lauren Price:

"You see what Katie Taylor has done for Ireland, I want to do the same for Wales. Win this fight and I've made history again.

"I want to bring boxing back to Wales. We saw what (Joe) Calzaghe did and it's time for me to fly the flag and get big nights back to Wales.

"We're a small nation, a very proud country. You see it with the Six Nations and the football, everybody gets behind their own.

"You only have to go to a rugby match in Cardiff and the streets are full. I hope on May 11 they will come out and support me."

Johnny Nelson believes the fight will play into Price's hands

Jessica McCaskill:

"The only thing that is different is the experience, there are amateurs and pro. Pro is very different - she doesn't have the pro experience and that could be the main factor here.

"The drive, the training, her team, she has great elements behind her.

"She says she's seen a lot of styles, but she hasn't seen crazy, and a little bit of crazy is going to be in that ring.
