‘[Ian] MacKillop, who trains both Shakeel and Jessica, echoes Phinn’s assessment: “She’s very skilled. Extremely strong. My biggest problem with her is finding sparring partners. She’s actually stopped guys in the gym. One guy spun around twice after getting tagged and just said, “I’m done,” and left. She’s been sparring with Adam Green who will be fighting for the Canadian middleweight title and I was worried he was going too hard on her, but she handled it no problem. I’m very impressed. I’ve never felt power like that from a female fighter. She’s not trying to hurt people here, but she’s flooring people and hurting them, so I had no choice but to let her spar with Shak. He’s significantly bigger, but she holds her own.”’ From “Donnybrook In The House” by Michael Carbert
