By Amy A Kaplan - 11/22/2023 - Comments

This Saturday, November 25, at the 3Arena and LIVE on DAZN, something absolutely fabulous is happening. We’re talking about the rematch of the century in women’s boxing, where Chantelle Cameron, our tough-as-nails champ, and Katie Taylor, the legend of women’s boxing, are going head-to-head for the Undisputed Super-Lightweight World Title. It’s all happening in Dublin, the land of charming accents and even more charming fighters!

So, let’s talk about our queen, Katie Taylor. Katie’s a living legend. With punches that could write poetry and a fighting spirit that’s more fiery than my last date, Katie’s a beacon of inspiration in women’s sports. She doesn’t just throw punches; she throws expectations out the window! A true icon for all the little girls who tie their hair back, put on gloves, and think, “Yeah, I can rule the world.”

But wait, let’s not forget about Chantelle Cameron. Oh, honey, she’s as tough as they come! With an undefeated record that screams “Who’s next?!” Chantelle isn’t just here to play; she’s here to slay. Her last tango with Katie? A spectacle that left everyone gasping. This time, she’s hinting at a victory even more stunning than the last. And, let’s be real, in the world of boxing, she’s like that high school queen bee – you can’t help but watch in awe.

The 32-year-old British powerhouse, who trains under Jamie Moore at the exclusive V.I.P Gym in Astley, was practically glowing with confidence. She received a warm welcome from the Irish crowd but hinted she’s ready to crash the party once again by taking down Taylor in an even more dramatic fashion.

Cameron, exuding self-assurance, said, “I’m feeling on top of the world. I’ve been through this rodeo before in May, and now I’m back for more. I’ve trained hard, I’m in peak condition, and I’m ready for anything. Saturday night? I’ve got no excuses. I’m at my best.” She added, “I always knew I was a tough match for Katie Taylor. She’ll be coming for revenge, but I know I can beat her – and I’ll do it even more convincingly this time.”

“I’m too determined, my work rate’s through the roof, I’m stronger, and I’m bigger. I’ve never been in better shape. Katie doesn’t stand a chance. Last time, I was in awe of her. Not this time. I’m defending my title and carving my own path. I’m going in with all guns blazing to finish what I started.”

Meanwhile, Irish legend Taylor (22-1, 6 KOs), fighting in her homeland for only the second time professionally, was all about focus and determination. She’s eyeing revenge over Cameron and is intent on reclaiming her status as a two-weight undisputed World Champion.

Taylor, laser-focused, shared, “I need to make a statement on Saturday. The last homecoming didn’t go as planned, but this fight is crucial for me. It’s strictly business. I’m in a different mindset this time around, and I can’t wait to step into the ring.”

“No other fight made sense to me after our last encounter. I’m incredibly grateful for this rematch opportunity. Last time, I wasn’t myself – it was an off night. But I’ve pushed myself to the limit preparing for this rematch. I’m ready to go. When I’m at my best, I’m unbeatable. It’s a dream to headline a major event in my country, and I’m ready to become a two-weight undisputed champion once again.

If Katie Taylor gets outboxed again by Chantelle Cameron, the big question on everyone’s glossy lips is: Will our boxing queen say ‘ta-ta’ to the ring? Let’s dish, darlings, because in the fabulously fierce world of boxing, deciding to hang up those gloves is like choosing the perfect outfit for the Met Gala – it’s super personal!

Katie Taylor: “Obviously we have to get over Saturday first, we can talk about that after Saturday night, but I definitely wouldn’t turn down a trilogy.”

Katie is not just any boxer; she’s a legend, a total queen in the ring. Her legacy in women’s boxing is like, totally written in the stars. So, if she faces another setback, it doesn’t mean it’s the final curtain call. Think of it more like a cliffhanger in your favorite drama series.
