Lauren Price will challenge for her first world title when taking on Jessica McCaskill.

The date and venue for the clash for the WBA and Ring Magazine welterweight titles is yet to be announced, although it is believed to be set for Cardiff.

The 29-year-old from Ystrad Mynach will be going for a world championship in just her seventh professional fight and is up against experienced 39-year-old American McCaskill.

Olympic champion Price could become the first Welshwoman to win a world title.

"I'm over the moon for this fight to finally be getting announced," said Price. "I know Ben Shalom and my team have been working very hard behind the scenes to make this happen so I just want to say a big thank you to them.

"Jessica McCaskill is the current champion. She's game, experienced and strong but I'll be 100 per cent ready for whatever she brings on the night. I believe in my ability.

"I back myself and I can't wait to bring those world titles back home to Wales, and hopefully this will line me up to bring more massive nights back to Wales in the near future."

Price (6-0) outclassed Silvia Bortot in December for a points win but McCaskill will be a step up in class.

"I don't know much about Price but when it comes to fighters from the UK the expectation is usually lots of backpedalling and holding," said McCaskill.

"Price is hopefully going to want to put on a good show. That's exactly what I want because I plan on doing the same. I'm here to steal all of her fans.

"I'm going to show her what it takes to be a champion and the belts will be coming back to America with me."
