A recap of Katie Taylor's last three fights

Katie Taylor is a true pioneer of women’s boxing. She has helped put the sport on the map, and her name will go down in the history books. But for now, her illustrious career potentially hangs in the balance.

Taylor suffered the first defeat of her professional career on her much-anticipated homecoming in Dublin earlier this year, with England’s Chantelle Cameron stunning the 37-year-old in the blockbuster undisputed lightweight championship bout at the 3Arena.

The 2012 Olympic gold medallist has the chance to put things right back in front of her home crowd in the Irish capital on November 25, as the pair are to trade blows in a rematch that promises to be another fight for the ages.

Those looking for a bet on Chantelle Cameron v Katie Taylor might be more drawn to the English fighter due to the outcome of their first encounter, but KT is on a mission for redemption, and with so much on the line, she might just have what it takes to turn this around.

That said, let’s take a look back at some of her more recent fights.

Chantelle Cameron – Lost by majority decision

After a second fight with undisputed featherweight Amanda Serrano fell through due to the Puerto Rican picking up an injury, Taylor called out undisputed super-lightweight champion Cameron on social media.

The bout was quickly made and promoter Eddie Hearn confirmed that it would take place at the aforementioned 3Arena, making it the first bout in her homeland of Taylor’s professional career.

The betting calculator had the Irishwomen down as the big favourite, but Cameron was the better fighter over a gruelling 10 rounds — landing some fierce body and head shots — and won by majority decision (94-96, 94-96, 95-95).

Karen Carabajal – Won by unanimous decision

Taylor defended her unified WBO, WBA, WBC and IBF lightweight titles for a seventh time with a commanding points victory over Karen Elizabeth Carabajal at Wembley Arena in October 2022.

The Argentine boasted an undefeated record in her previous 19 bouts, but this was her first fight outside of her homeland and her first bout against an elite-level opponent.

Carabajal wasn’t up to the standard, as she was massively outboxed and widely outscored — with the judges scoring it 98-92, 99-91 and 100-91.

Amanda Serrano – Won by split decision

Katie Taylor vs Amanda Serrano was the first women’s boxing match to headline an event at the iconic Madison Square Garden in New York, and it certainly didn’t disappoint — with many even claiming it helped put the sport on the map.

There were high hopes for this bout, and it definitely delivered, as Taylor ultimately outpointed Serrano 97-93, 96-93 and 94-96 for a split-decision victory.

The nine-time world champion in seven weight classes looked on course to stop Taylor in New York, but the Irishwomen dug deep and managed to turn it around in the latter rounds for a monumental victory on the judges’ scorecards.

It would be a shame if these two never traded blows in a blockbuster rematch, but it all lies on Taylor’s rematch with Cameron.
