Chantelle Cameron and Christina Linardatou Given 10-Day Warning by WBO

Undisputed junior welterweight champion Chantelle “Il Capo” Cameron (17-0, 18KO) must hurry up and decide on defending the undisputed crown against two-time WBO champion Christina “Medusa” Linardatou (14-2, 6KO). The WBO has issued a statement declaring the match could be going to a purse bid soon.

On November 13, the WBO requested that negotiations begin between the two teams after naming Medusa as mandatory. The organization granted the standard 30 days to reach an agreement before they order a purse bid.


No agreement was reached and neither team responded to the organization’s inquiry concerning the negotiations. Assuming no deal has been achieved, the WBO Committee has issued the following statement.

“The parties are hereby ordered to confirm within the next 48 hours upon issuance of this notice, whether an agreement has been reached, or purse bids will be scheduled in the next 10 days thereafter.”

Lindardatou won the WBO title in 2020 and had to relinquish the title after getting pregnant in 2021. The Republica Dominicana native returned to the ring on July 27 and is ready to fight the undisputed champion.

Cameron has been trying to get a rematch for Jessica “Caskilla” McCaskill’s undisputed welterweight crown. With things escalating from the WBO, she may have to forgo that desire for the moment to deal with Linardatou.
