In the first two rounds, the aggressor Cameron took the first, and Taylor used an effective jab in the second. In the fourth round, Cameron landed quite a few rights to the chin of Taylor, loosening her ponytail to even the score. In the fifth round, Taylor finished the round with a solid right to the chin against the ever-coming Cameron.

In the sixth round, a war broke out with both boxers throwing punches in bunches in a close, if not even, fight. In the seventh round, Cameron seemed to have an edge, outworking Taylor. In the eighth round, Taylor came back well, landing a big left hook in the final seconds of the round to the chin of Cameron.

In the ninth round, Cameron came back well enough to outland Taylor in another action-packed round. In the tenth and final round, it was Taylor’s left hook mostly out-landing Cameron in a terrific bout full of action. Cameron’s face looked the worse, with marks on her cheeks. Referee Sparkle Lee.
