Chantelle Cameron Warns Kali Reis And Jessica Camara She Taking All The Belts
Newly crowned unified junior welterweight champion Chantelle “Il Capo” Cameron (15-0, 8ko) is backing up her words of wanting all the belts after defeating former IBF champion “Merciless Mary McGee (27-4, 15ko).
The junior welterweight division is on fire with the tournament to crown an undisputed champion. Cameron’s fight with McGee was the first installment of the journey towards undisputed. The now unified champion mixed up her attack by boxing and fighting on the inside. The strategy proved she was clearly the better fighter as she nearly won every round.
“I am better in all the departments. I am a better fighter. She may be more experienced in the pro game, but I am more experienced amateur.”
Her amateur pedigree did come into play as everything was built off the jab.
The unified champion has always been steadfast on chasing undisputed. On several occasions, she has made it clear that sitting back with one title is not in her character. So imagine the fan’s delight when DAZN promoter Eddie Hearn put together this tournament and was able to get all the champions onboard is an incredible accomplishment.
WBA champion Kali “KO Mequinonoag” Reis was on color commentary to help promote her own upcoming unification with Jessica Camara. When asked which opponent she would prefer to fight, the unified champion was not looking to be diplomatic.
“Doesn’t matter who is next. I’m taking all the belts anyway.”
Like it or not, that is the attitude she is supposed to have. Especially when a future opponent is in attendance. Fighters are supposed to be confident. Moreover, fans can expect that comment will motivate Reis and Camara in their upcoming fight on November 19.
Cameron can go home and enjoy being the unified champion. However, she will need to get right back in the gym, continue to work hard and be ready to back up the talk because the journey is far from over.
