The First Great Female Boxing Trilogy? Katie Taylor Says She’d Love A “Barrera-Morales Type Trilogy” With Chantelle Cameron

By James Slater - 11/26/2023 - Comments

Chantelle Cameron recently opened up on Matchroom’s Flash Knockdown podcast, stating confidently that her victory over Katie Taylor in their upcoming rematch will be even more impressive. The two boxers will fight for the undisputed Super-Lightweight championship at Dublin’s 3Arena on Saturday, November 25, and the bout will be broadcast live on DAZN.

Hailing from Northampton, Cameron (18-0, 8 KOs) delivered a stunning blow to Taylor’s previously unblemished record, maintaining her status as the undisputed champ in the 140lb division. The two had previously fought in a memorable event at a packed 3Arena back in May.

While defending her titles, Cameron was perceived as a significant underdog, particularly given that the fight was Taylor’s first professional bout in her home country of Ireland. However, the 32-year-old Brit silenced the local fans by pulling off a majority decision victory.

Despite the impressive win, which ranks among the finest ‘away’ performances by a British fighter, Cameron feels she didn’t receive sufficient praise or recognition for defeating who many consider to be the greatest female boxer of all time.

Looking forward to the rematch in November, Cameron seems more eager than ever, hinting at adopting a more aggressive stance in her second fight against the Irish icon. “To be honest, the first fight wasn’t as close as people think. Sure, there were a few tight rounds, but I won handily,” said Cameron. “I’m motivated to prove that the first fight wasn’t a fluke for either of us.”

Cameron further suggested that a change to three-minute rounds could be an interesting development, mirroring Amanda Serrano’s recent advocacy. “If she’s pushing for it, why can’t we?” Cameron pondered.

She also touched upon the subject of not receiving her due recognition. “Even now, the spotlight’s more on Katie; it’s basically her homecoming event. But having the ringwalk second this time means a lot to me.”

Cameron is gearing up for a different type of battle this time around. “While I have a lot of respect for Katie outside the ring, within that square circle, it’s a different story. I’m planning to go in there and do some real damage. I know I have the skills to beat her, she can’t hurt me. I’m planning to come in stronger, bigger, and way more aggressive.”

Chantelle Cameron, defending her undisputed Super-Lightweight World Titles:

“I must stay alert and avoid being overconfident. Katie’s a tough fighter and she’s out for redemption. I handed her her first loss, so I need to up my game. Jamie and I have reviewed our last bout repeatedly, and frankly, I’m tired of watching it. I know I faltered at several moments and there’s room for improvement. I’m determined to return to Dublin, secure another win, and continue to build my legacy.

Recalling our first encounter, it struck me that I had defeated Katie Taylor. Other victories hadn’t left such an impact. Battling Katie felt like reaching a pinnacle in boxing due to her expertise. Now, that chapter is behind me. My focus now is on refining my skills.

I’m prepared for an even more determined Katie. She’s eager to settle scores. Hence, I’m pushing my limits. Our initial fight was good, but I aspire to make this one exceptional. I want to channel my aggression like I used to. The grandeur of our previous fight was a novel experience, but having been through it, I can now concentrate solely on the fight.

While I don’t actively chase a knockout, I’m aware of the need to be more assertive. I was too deferential during our last bout. I operate best when there’s an element of rivalry and challenge. Recognizing the immense responsibility ahead, I’m all set to adopt a more aggressive stance.

Jamie and Nigel advise caution, warning me not to get too cocky and to maintain my guard. While I believe I’m tough to take down, I’ll be more strategic, dodging unnecessary hits. Facing Katie, I have unwavering confidence, but I’ll ensure I stay defensive.”

“I’m not taking it easy, trust me. That’s why I’ve been training like crazy. This camp was the best ever. I’m facing a Katie Taylor out for revenge, and I’m ready for it. I know this won’t be a walk in the park. I’m in peak condition.

“I always set the pace, always busy in the ring, but I can switch it up too. I can get down and dirty in a fight or play it smart with boxing. I’m feeling pretty comfy here, actually enjoying the week for a change. Usually, I’m not into all this, but I’m rolling with it this time.

“Prep’s been top-notch. I’m in the best shape ever, no torn tricep this time, so I’m all set.”

Katie Taylor, challenging for the undisputed Super-Lightweight World Titles:

I’m super thankful for another shot at this. I’m buzzing for the rematch, can’t wait to get in there on Saturday. Doesn’t matter if I’m the underdog or the top dog, or who walks in first or last. I’m just starving for this fight. Honestly, I don’t pay attention to the chatter. I only listen to my team and my family, the people I trust. I get it, this fight is a big deal, a must-win for me. I’m geared up to show a different side this time, and I’m just pumped to show off my skills.

“I’m feeling way better for this one. Just ready to get down to business. Not a fan of all the talk and press stuff, let’s just get to the fight. I’m always prepared, ready to push myself to the limit. That’s the grind, getting ready for moments like these.

“Every fight for me is a do-or-die situation. Regardless of the stakes, the next fight is always paramount. This rematch is undeniably important. I’m fortunate to have another shot at redemption. Having faced losses in my amateur days, I know how to bounce back with vigor. As a Christian, the idea of rebirth resonates deeply with me, and I eagerly await our next encounter.

Irrespective of people’s perceptions or my placement on the card, my resolve remains unshaken. The primary goal is always victory. Our previous bout was a nail-biter, and I’m optimistic that if I bring my A-game, the result will be in my favor.

I anticipate a more refined version of Chantelle, but I’m equally geared to enhance my own performance. Our last fight was memorable, and I’m convinced that both of us will give our all for a win.

It was evident that I wasn’t at my peak last time, but that’s in the past. Now, my focus is on the upcoming challenge. Training intensively and having the opportunity to fight again in Ireland is exhilarating. Our previous event was a spectacle, and each time we host major boxing events, it reinforces the sport’s stature in Irish culture. Boxing has always been a dominant force in Irish sports. The chance to possibly become a two-time two-weight undisputed champion makes this the most significant fight in my career.”

Eddie Hearn:

“Totally stoked to be back in Dublin! Last time was great, but this Saturday? It’s going to be off the charts. We’re part of something super special here. Shoutout to everyone from the media to our crew at Matchroom and, of course, the fighters. You all have an awesome chance this Saturday, live globally on DAZN. You’ll be defending titles, gunning for World championship spots, and maybe even scoring future deals with Matchroom and DAZN. And the main event? Absolutely mind-blowing. Chantelle Cameron was fantastic last time, defending her undisputed 140lb title against the tough Katie Taylor. Last time, Gary Cully and Katie both took a hit, and it felt like ‘game over’ for us in Ireland. But hey, here we are a few months later, back in a jam-packed 3Arena with an even more action-packed card. Loads of exciting fights and great fighters to watch.”

Alfie Sharman:

“The upcoming fight is a real thriller. Chantelle was like a tank in April, and Katie, being the tough competitor she is, will make this an unforgettable event. We’re kicking off an insane schedule to year’s end, and nobody in the boxing world is pulling off what we’re doing right now. We’re super proud to bring this excitement to boxing fans everywhere.”

Tickets for this make-or-break event will be available for purchase starting on Monday, September 25, for Matchroom Fight Pass Members, with priority sales on Tuesday, September 26, and general sales commencing on Wednesday, September 27. Tickets will be available through Ticketmaster & StageFront with prices ranging from €80 to €1000 VIP.
