Chantelle Cameron Believes She Will Dominate Jessica McCaskill!
Unified women’s junior welterweight champion Chantelle Cameron (16-0, 8 KOs) is just days away from the biggest fight of her career. On November 5, the 31-year-old from Northampton, England will face reigning undisputed welterweight champion Jessica “CasKILLA” McCaskill (12-2-2, 5 KOs) for the undisputed junior welterweight title at the Etihad Arena in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates.
READY FOR THE CHALLENGE
Pundits rank her upcoming opponent as one of the best women’s fighters in the world. During an interview with UK source Boxing Social, Cameron said she respects McCaskill but is confident in what she can and will do.
“Jessica is undisputed at 147 […] I’m one of the best as well. So yeah, it’s definitely my time to shine.”
When Cameron received the call about the fight, the unified champ was ecstatic. It’s always been her dream to become an undisputed champ at 140. She said that, as a bonus, it could come against an opponent so accomplished and highly regarded. When asked for a breakdown of CasKILLA, Cameron said the following:
“She’s definitely improved since the Katie Taylor fight. But at the same time, she’s still very raw. I just got to do what I do, and I’ll get the win. I can beat her in every single department, and I know I can. I can dig deep, I can punch, I’ve got speed, I got the timing. Whatever she’s gonna bring, I can give it back.”
STYLES MAKES FIGHTS
The undisputed welterweight champ is a physical, punishing fighter. If you’re not mentally and physically 100 percent, McCaskill can take your will. She showed that in her last fight, a stoppage win over then-mandatory challenger Alma Ibarra in June 2022.
However, the 140-pound champ has the tools to thwart the aggressive McCaskill. She’s an all-around technician with good pop in her punches. Cameron also has the legs and is comfortable fighting forward and moving backward, as she showed in her last fight, an easy win against Victoria Bustos in May 2022.
Cameron has longed for the big stage and a high-profile match. She is on a mission to prove how good she truly is and put on the performance of a lifetime.
