Chantelle Cameron: 'I don’t think I got the recognition for beating Katie'

Undisputed world super-lightweight champion, Chantelle Cameron [18-0 8KOs] still believes that she has not got the credit she deserves following her win over Katie Taylor [22-1 6KOs] in May of this year in Dublin, Ireland. 

Cameron would travel to the emerald isle and cause the upset win over the Irish national hero Taylor, producing the most accomplished win of her career in retaining her undisputed crown and earnt herself a somewhat controversial majority decsion. 

The champion will return once again to the scene of her victory on November 25th at the 3Arena in the city of Dublin and aims to prove that her victorious night in May was not soley down to Taylor not being her best. 

Speaking to Matchroom Boxing’s Flash Knockdown podcast, Cameron says that she is remains motivated to rematch Katie despite her objections of being forced into a rematch with Taylor due to her opinion that the original May contest not being particularly close. 

"I don’t think it was that much of a close fight where it needed a rematch to be honest," said Cameron. "There were a few close rounds but I comfortably won. I’ve done it once, I’ve got to do it again and prove it wasn’t just an off night for Katie… But I wasn’t at my best either, that’s what motivates me.

"Me and Jamie have said multiple times three minute rounds would suit me. That would be insane if me and Katie did that in Dublin. If Serrano’s pushing it, why can’t we?

"I don’t think I got the recognition for beating Katie. This is still Katie’s show, it’s her homecoming again but it was important for me to have the ringwalk second. The first one was a long time, I was waiting in the ring for ages. 

"This fight is going to be completely different. As much as I respect Katie out of the ring, inside those ropes there’s zero respect. I have a bit of spite for this and I’m going in there to cause damage. I know how to beat Katie, I know she can’t hurt me. I’m bigger, stronger and I’m going to be a lot more aggressive."
