Cameron Vows to Beat Taylor More Thoroughly in the Rematch


Reigning undisputed women’s junior welterweight champion Chantelle Cameron (18-0, 8 KOs) is just days away from her highly anticipated November 25 rematch against undisputed lightweight champion Katie Taylor at 3Arena in Dublin, Ireland. Believing she’s at her peak, Cameron is looking for a fight and does not doubt that she’s leaving the ring with her arms raised in victory.

At the final press conference in Dublin, Cameron was relaxed and carried the aura of a fighter confident in her ability and what she plans to do on fight night. While speaking to members of the boxing press, the 32-year-old said she plans to take her game to another level.

“This time, I’m going to put on a better performance. I put the work in the gym. So, all I gotta do now is perform, no excuses.”

RINSE AND REPEAT?

In their first battle on May 20, Cameron got off to an early lead and held off a Taylor rally in the championship rounds to secure a unanimous victory. Cameron feels that the match was full of sloppy moments, including unnecessary holding and headbutts, and plans to have a cleaner performance this time.

With the rematch once again occurring in Taylor’s home country of Ireland, Cameron feels that all the pressure is on her opponent and thinks Taylor will respond by fighting aggressively in an attempt to seek revenge. If that’s the case, Cameron is ready for whatever her adversary has to offer.

“I’m hoping she meets me in the middle. She’ll come out and got more to prove, and she knows that she’s going to have to try to win the first few rounds, but I’m going to meet her . . . I’m stronger than I’ve ever been, and I’m going in there with more confidence.

I’ve been in the big arena. I’ve had the crowd going against me. I’ve had the boos; I’ve been in the lion’s den. I’m going to enjoy it, and I know I’ve got the power . . . I’m going in there to win.”

Ultimately, Cameron believes that she’s the better fighter. The junior welterweight champion won their first battle and plans on having a repeat performance on November 25.
