Chantelle Cameron Gives Katie Taylor No Shot Against Her Style
Reigning undisputed women’s junior welterweight champion Chantelle Cameron (18-0, 8 KOs) returns to the lion’s den of the 3Arena in Dublin, Ireland for her November 25 rematch with undisputed lightweight champion Katie Taylor (22-0, 6 KOs). Having won their first battle, Cameron is looking for a repeat victory in an even more dominant fashion.
In their previous battle on May 20, Cameron pressed the action from the opening bell. Taylor rallied in the championship rounds, but it wasn’t enough as Cameron won by unanimous decision.
STYLES MAKE FIGHTS
Taylor has insisted that the loss was due to her having an off-night. Cameron is not buying it. During an exclusive interview with the UK media outlet iFL TV, the junior welterweight champion scoffed at that notion, and believes she is simply better than the lightweight champion.
“I just think my style is all wrong for Katie Taylor. So, I just think that regardless if it was an off-night for Katie, or she’d done things wrong, I just think my style alone, I’m all wrong for Katie.”
FEELING SHE CAN DO MORE
In Cameron’s heart, she thinks that Taylor can’t hurt her. The current queen of 140 believes that the experience of their first fight will produce an even better performance on her part in the rematch.
“I already got the spite and aggression. But now, it’s how I throw my shots . . . When you’ve been in there with someone, you do kind of get a taste for what they’re about. I can do more damage in this fight.”
Cameron is riding an all-time wave of confidence. If she fights up to her pre-fight boasts this time around, it could once again spell trouble for Katie Taylor.
