Mary Cassamas, a professional boxer from Ross Township, trains at Jack’s Boxing Gym six days a week as she pursues her dreams of becoming a world champion. She sees boxing as a challenge that allows her to test herself and is dedicated to achieving success in the sport.

Cassamassa has been training with Jack Mook, the head trainer at Jack’s Boxing Gym, since she was a teenager. Mook believes in her talent and potential, describing her as the real deal and someone who can go all the way in the sport. Casamasa, who also works full-time as an engineer, juggles a rigorous training regime that includes hours of training every day to prepare for her upcoming fights.

Cassamas’ next big opportunity comes at the Brawl at the Hall event at Steamfitters 499 Union Hall in Harmonia, where she will face boxing veteran Olivia Gerula in a 10-round main event. This fight will be a significant challenge for Casamasa, who has never fought longer than six rounds before. However, she is determined to succeed and hopes to bring home the title as the VIBA Super Middleweight Champion.

With a win on Saturday, Kasamasa could potentially move up the world rankings and move closer to her ultimate goal of becoming a world champion. She credits her faith and pre-fight rituals, such as praying with her trainer, for helping her focus and mentally prepare for matches. Casamasa’s dedication and hard work have established her as a rising star in the world of boxing and she hopes to make her family proud by achieving her dreams.
