Chantelle Cameron Wants the 147-Pound Crown Off Of Jessica McCaskill!
Women’s boxing continues to produce undisputed champions as if they are passing out Halloween candy. Newly crowned undisputed junior welterweight champion Chantelle “Il Capo” Cameron (17-0, 8KO) sits atop the division alone after defeating undisputed welterweight champion Jessica “CasKilla” McCaskill (12-3, 5KO).
Cameron originally had a fight set with former unified champion Kali Reis for the undisputed crown. However, Reis got sidelined due to an undisclosed health issue which opened the door for McCaskill to step in.
Il Capo walked into Etihad Arena in Abu Dhabi as the unified champion and left the building with the undisputed crown. It was a master-class performance from Cameron, as she boxed with brilliance fending off the aggressive McCaskill.
THE UNDISPUTED CHAMPION LAYS OUT THE PLAN
Cameron’s dream was fulfilled after hearing all three judges scored it in her favor. Moreover, she stunned the boxing world in the post-fight interview by calling for a rematch McCaskill for the undisputed welterweight crown.
“This is the toughest opponent I’ve ever had in Jessica McCaskill. I knew she was going to be tough. She is undisputed at 147, so I got the win unanimous. Let’s go to 147 and take them belts off her.
I put my belts on the line. She can put hers on the line, and we can go again.”
In her final statement, Cameron expressed being open to revisiting a missed opportunity in fighting Reis.
“If Kali Reis is going to be healthy, then maybe she should get the first shot.”
