I exposed a lot of Katie Taylor's downfalls as a fighter | Jessica McCaskill

Women's world welterweight boxing champion Jessica McCaskill is talking up a rematch against Katie Taylor, claiming she exposed Taylor's weaknesses in their first bout.

The Bray lightweight got an unanimous decision victory over McCaskill when the pair clashed for the WBA lightweight title in London in December 2017 with both have gone on to become undisputed world champions since.

Promoter Eddie Hearn has spoken about the potential for a second fight between them this year and McCaskill feels there's enough evidence from their first meeting to suggest she can get the result this time around.

"We gave Katie a great fight and almost knocked her out with a left hook," the 36-year-old American told Sky Sports.

"It wasn't that we weren't prepared. We did everything that we were supposed to do. I wouldn't go back and change anything - if I was on the wrong path, I wouldn't be where I am today.

"I exposed a lot of her downfalls as a boxer. Then, everybody wanted to fight her. Three years ago I was very green, after coming into the sport with only 25 amateur fights. In Chicago I was fast-tracked.

"I have incorporated a nutritionist, a strength and conditioning coach and different sparring over the years. We are more experienced.

"I wouldn't say it didn't go right for me. People ask what I would do differently? What did I learn? I learned that my team is prepared for the big stage. That was my biggest fight at the time.

Hearn has suggested that McCaskill will offer Norwegian former multiple weight champion Cecilia Braekhus a welterweight rematch before a clash with Taylor in the summer of this year.
