Hailing from Northampton, Cameron (18-0, 8 KOs) successfully gave the undisputed Lightweight World Champion, Taylor, the initial setback of her career, affirming her dominance at 140lbs during their memorable encounter at the fully booked 3Arena earlier in May.
While Cameron entered the fight as the defending champion, many viewed her as the less favored against Taylor, especially considering it was Taylor’s debut fight in Ireland throughout her seven-year professional journey. However, defying expectations, the 32-year-old from Britain took everyone by surprise, clinching a majority decision win, leaving the local fans in awe.
‘Il Capo’s’ remarkable victory stands out as one of the finest foreign feats by a British boxer. Nonetheless, she feels the acknowledgment and praise she received post-victory was insufficient, especially after defeating someone who’s often labeled as the best female boxer ever.
November’s rematch has the former Team GB member even more motivated. She alludes to embracing a fiercer strategy in her upcoming fight with the Irish icon.
“I don’t believe the first fight was too close to warrant a rematch,” Cameron remarked. “There were some tight rounds, but I was the clear winner. I’ve emerged victorious once and I’m all set to do it again, assuring everyone that Katie’s performance wasn’t just a fluke. Yet, I wasn’t at my peak either, and that’s what drives me forward.”
Discussing the format, she mentioned, “Jamie and I have always felt three-minute rounds would favor me. It would be quite the spectacle if Katie and I agreed to this in Dublin. If Serrano’s advocating it, why shouldn’t we?”
She added, “I didn’t feel I was adequately recognized post my win over Katie. While this still feels like Katie’s event and her return, it was crucial for me to walk into the ring second. During our first fight, I waited for what felt like an eternity.”
“This upcoming fight promises a fresh experience. While I genuinely respect Katie outside the boxing realm, within those ropes, that respect dwindles to none. I have a certain resentment towards this, and my intent is to go in there and cause disruption. I understand Katie’s fighting style, know she can’t overpower me. I’m more robust, and my intent for this fight is to bring forth heightened aggression.”
Katie Taylor, Looking to Reclaim the Super-Lightweight World Titles:
“Every bout matters. For a fighter, the upcoming one always feels like the most crucial. This one? It’s definitely a significant one for me. Having this rematch means everything, and not everyone gets a second shot. I’ve tasted defeat before in my amateur days, and I know what it takes to bounce back. My faith strengthens me, and the idea of a turnaround is in my very core. This comeback? It’s got me buzzing, and I’m raring to get back in the ring.
Being labeled an underdog or favorite, it’s all the same to me. My eyes are on the prize, always training with a single focus: victory. No matter the challenges, I’m prepared to dig deep. Our previous fight? Neck and neck. Now, I’m confident that with my best performance, I’ve got this. Chantelle’s a strong opponent, no doubt. But when I’m at my peak, I truly believe I can take on anyone.
Expecting the finest version of Chantelle? Absolutely. And she should expect an even better me. While we had a fierce ten rounds previously, I know we’re both gunning for the win this time around. Sure, I wasn’t at my optimal performance last time, but that’s in the past. Right now, I’m pumped to be training hard and getting another shot, especially in Ireland. It was electrifying before, even if the result wasn’t in my favor. Bringing big fights to Ireland? It cements boxing in our nation’s heart, where it rightfully belongs. This next fight? It’s monumental for me, potentially carving out a legacy as a two-time, two-weight undisputed champ. It doesn’t get bigger than this in my journey so far.”
Chantelle Cameron, The Undisputed Super-Lightweight World Champ:
“I’m always on my toes, never taking anything for granted. Look, Katie’s no walk in the park. She wants to set the score straight after that loss, and I get it. Watching our old fight, though? Man, I cringe at some bits. I know I can do better. That last Dublin night was wild, but now I’ve got to top that.
Beating Katie? It felt unreal. I always thought that if you can beat Katie Taylor, you’ve pretty much nailed boxing. But that’s done. Round two’s coming up, and I’m here to up my game.
Katie’s coming back stronger; I can feel it. So, I’m revving up my engine, getting a bit fiercer, a tad more ruthless. Last time was huge, but now it’s about getting in the zone and just focusing on the fight.
Not one to hunt for a knockout, but I’m looking to be bolder. I played it too safe last time, but now? Gloves are off. The stakes are high, and I’m coming in all guns blazing.”
Jamie Moore, The Man Behind Chantelle Cameron’s Success:
“That last Dublin night? Pure magic. But some of those scorecards? Too close for my liking. Yet, here we are, gearing up for another round.
Fighting Katie in her backyard? It was all sorts of unpredictable. But this time? We’ve got the blueprint. We’ve rewatched, reanalyzed, and man, Chantelle’s got more to bring to the table. Katie’s probably seeing this as her redemption arc, pushing her to go all out. Means we’ve got to push harder.
Chantelle’s grown since that fight, and I’m betting on an even sharper performance. Yeah, a home game or neutral ground would’ve been nice, but coming back to Dublin? It’s only lit a bigger fire in Chantelle. She’s ready, and so are we.”
