Chantelle Cameron calls for one key rule change ahead of Katie Taylor rematch
Undisputed women's super lightweight champion Chantelle Cameron would like to see her rematch with Katie Taylor be contested over 12 three-minute rounds instead of the standard 10 two-minute rounds in women's world championship fights.
This comes in light of the announcement that Amanda Serrano's defence of her women's featherweight titles against Danila Ramos next month will be the same length as a men's world title fight.
Cameron has already beaten Taylor at 140lbs after the pair met in the Irish capital last May in what was a thrilling contest, and she believes that a fight over a longer distance is perfectly suited to her style.
"Me and Jamie have said multiple times three minute rounds would suit me," Cameron said.
"That would be insane if me and Katie did that in Dublin. If Serrano’s pushing it, why can’t we?"
The rematch is scheduled for the 3Arena on November 25 live on DAZN, and while Cameron was declared the winner via a majority decision with scores of 96-94, 96-94 and 95-95, the 32-year-old claims that she is yet to receive significant praise for pulling off the unthinkable in Taylor's backyard which has fuelled her motivation ahead of the second meeting.
"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," Cameron continued.
"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."
