Who is Chantelle Cameron? Background, record, championships, biggest wins of Katie Taylor's next opponent
The undisputed women's super lightweight champion Chantelle Cameron has already found herself in the good books of many boxing fans.

As expected, Taylor accepted the challenge and will now attempt to become a two-weight undisputed champion against a difficult opponent.
For Cameron, the odds are stacked against her. It will be a hostile atmosphere inside the 3Arena come fight night, but currently full of confidence after beating Jessica McCaskill in her previous outing, the British fighter will be looking to spoil Taylor's homecoming party.

On the undercard of Dmitry Bivol vs. Gilberto Ramirez, WBC and IBF women's super lightweight champion Chantelle Cameron looked to become the undisputed title holder against the accomplished Jessica McCaskill.

Sticking to a well thought out gameplan, Cameron once more used her jab to set up combinations and comfortably set the tempo for the fight.
McCaskill started to find her range in round five, but it was too little, too late for the American with Cameron winning the fight via unanimous decision.
