Coming off of a surprising decision loss to pro debutting Tonya Fisher in June, Jessica McCaskill (2-1, 2 KOs) needed a reset with pro-debutting Alexandria Williams on Saturday Night at Warriors Boxing’s Windy City Fight Night at UIC Pavilion in Chicago.
McCaskill came out with conviction, landing an array of solid shots with both hands on the very athletic Williams.
Williams came out swinging as well, but was off-balanced for the power. She ended up on the canvas just a second before the 1st Round bell from taking a ginormous left hook upstairs from McCaskill.
Heading into the second round, Williams tried keeping distance from the heavy hands of McCaskill, but found herself in tight and trying to ward off or evade the heavy right hooks, stiff crosses and bundled in uppercuts.
McCaskill kept pressing her opponent into the ropes and unloading, pushing Williams to the brink of a second knockdown numerous times.
Williams, with her active background of multi-sports, military, stuntwork, and amateur boxing held in strong, but could not hold up as the referee saw enough and stopped the bout only 32 seconds into the 3rd Round.
