Chantelle Cameron Wants Jessica McCaskill at 147 for Undisputed Championship
Unified junior welterweight champion Chantelle “Il Capo” Cameron (16-0, 8KO) is on a mission to become an undisputed champion. Cameron’s crusade for undisputed at 140 is on pause, and she now has eyes on the undisputed welterweight champion Jessica “Caskilla” McCaskill (11-2, 4KO).
Il Capo was part of a push by promoter Eddie Hearn to crown an undisputed champion. After picking up the vacant WBC crown against Adriana Dos Santos Araujo in 2020, she would relieve Mary McGee of the IBF title the following year.
She was next going to fight unified champion Kali Reis to crown an undisputed champion. Things were underway until Reis had to put the fight on hold due to health issues. This was a major disappointment as fans were excited to see the two women fight for top honors.
Cameron would push forward with a stay-busy fight against former IBF lightweight champion Victoria Bustos on May 21. The unified champion is unsure when or if the fight with Reis will take place and is looking for new challenges.
CAMERON ONLY WANTS TO FIGHT FOR UNDISPUTED
An opportunity may have presented itself as McCaskill revealed wanting to fight Cameron as a junior welterweight and reclaim one of the belts she once owned in the division. CasKilla is also a former unified junior welterweight champion, having held the WBC and WBA titles. Ironically, the WBC title is now in the hands of Cameron.
In an interview with DAZN, McCaskill mentioned going back to junior welterweight to fight Cameron. 3Kings Boxing learned from Cameron that she is not interested in the fight unless it is for McCaskill’s undisputed status.
“She is undisputed, so why fight for my belts? I want to be undisputed. So if the fight was to happen, I’d want it for all her belts.”
McCaskill will be defending the belts against mandatory challenger Alma Ibarra. When questioned on the event of Ibarra winning, Cameron expressed no change in focus.
“It’s all about undisputed.”
