Chantelle Cameron Believes a Katie Taylor Rematch Happens In November


It’s been nearly a month since undisputed women’s junior welterweight champion Chantelle Cameron (18-0, 8 KOs) scored the biggest win of her career. On May 20, the 32-year-old from Northampton, England successfully defended her belts by scoring a majority decision victory over reigning women’s lightweight champion Katie Taylor (22-1, 6 KOs). Now she awaits word of a possible rematch, potentially for November.

TAKING A LOOKING BACK

Cameron has been extremely busy since her win over Taylor. Speaking to the media outlet iFL TV, the junior welterweight champion reflected on that victory.

“I learned a lot about myself. It sounds a bit cringey, but I’m quite proud of myself as well because I did something that I didn’t think I had in me . . . the fact that I went into such a hostile environment in Katie Taylor’s homecoming and was having boos against me.

Everything was against me, and I stood my ground and poker face and got the job done. I think it was the proudest moment of my life.”

Fighting in Taylor’s home country of Ireland, Cameron said the contest was mentally the toughest of her career. With the win, the 140-pound champion has moved into the upper echelon of women’s boxing.

NOT RESTING ON HER LAURELS

Taylor has called for a rematch. Cameron said she’s heard rumblings that the rematch could occur in November. The undisputed lightweight champion is a proud warrior and wants revenge. But Cameron warns that she’s going to be more motivated than ever.

“She’s got a point to prove, but so have I. So, that’s what I mean, my mindset is different. I respect her massively outside the ring . . . But when we’re in that ring, I’m different. A switch goes off, and I don’t respect anyone.

So, she is going to be more dangerous in the rematch . . . But I’m going to be even more of a danger . . . As much work as she puts in, I will put in double.”

Their first fight was an outstanding contest. Many observers expect their rematch to be just as good.
