McCaskill vs Price Undercard, Start Time, TV Channel, Ring Walks

  • Jessica McCaskill will defend her world title against Lauren Price next
  • Olympic Gold medallist gets major homecoming in Wales on May 11
  • Heavyweight Hughie Fury returns on McCaskill vs Price Undercard

Jessica McCaskill fights a few weeks later than originally planned.

McCaskill was scheduled to defend her WBA, WBC and IBO welterweight titles against Ivana Habazin on April 20 in Croatia after Piranha Promotions, on behalf of Habazin, won the purse bids for $82,500.

However, it was confirmed in March that the fight will no longer go ahead and the American will instead put her 147-pound championship on the line against Britain’s undefeated Lauren Price.

Price will get home advantage for her first world title shot as McCaskill travels to Cardiff, Wales to defend her title on May 11.

McCaskill is coming off back-to-back fights against British opposition where she dropped a competitive ten-round decision to Chantelle Cameron and came away with a split-decision draw against Sandy Ryan – who puts her championship on the line against Terri Harper in an All-British world title fight this month.

Price has had six professional bouts since entering the pro game in June 2022 after winning Olympic Gold in Tokyo. The Welsh woman has already beaten a former European champion, Kirstie Bavington, and former middleweight title challenger, Lolita Muzeya.

The 29-year-old southpaw shares a promoter, Ben Shalom’s BOXXER, with another titleist in Natasha Jonas leaving the possibility of a unification fight open for Price and possibly McCaskill should she end the unbeaten record of the British women on May 11 live on Sky Sports (UK) and Peacock (US).

McCaskill vs Price Undercard

Former World Title challenger Hughie Fury faces Germany’s Patrick Korte in a heavyweight clash.

Fury (27-3, 15 KOs) is looking to get his career back on track following an extended period out the ring. The 29-year-old returned to action last month, scoring a points win over Kostiantyn Dovbyshchenko.

Germany’s ‘Big Patrick’ Korte (21-3-1, 18 KOs) has been stopped in all three defeats inside three rounds against Felix Langberg, Demsey McKean, and Andrei Mazanik. Fury will be looking to do the same on Saturday.

Undefeated light heavyweight Lewis Edmondson faces Joel McIntyre.

Edmondson (8-0, 3 KOs) claimed a points win over Dmytro Fedas last time out at the Bournemouth International Centre in December and will look to extend his unbeaten run as he targets a fight with fast-rising star Ben Whittaker.

McIntrye (20-8, 5 KOs) is coming off four consecutive defeats but should prove durable opposition for Edmondson.

Mark Jeffers will meet Darren Johnstone in a ten-round super middleweight bout.

Jeffers (17-0, 4 KOs) stepped in at short notice to defeat current British and Commonwealth Champion Zak Chelli in July 2023.

Johnstone (8-0, 2 KOs) won the Scottish Area title last time out after Ben McGivern retired due to acut above his eye.

Rhys Edwards (15-0, 4 KOs) takes on the former British champion and WBA #1 contender Thomas Patrick Ward (34-1-1, 5 KOs) for the WBA Intercontinental Title.
