3Arena, Dublin, Ireland
Bouts 1 - Updated Mon, Nov 27 2023
Chantelle Cameron is poised for her second journey to Ireland, setting the stage for a highly-anticipated rematch with Katie Taylor as they once again vie for the junior welterweight titles. Scheduled for November 25, the Taylor-Cameron II rematch will unfold at Dublin's 3Arena, the very venue where Cameron handed Taylor her initial professional loss. In their previous encounter, Cameron, 32, secured a majority decision victory with scores of 96-94, 96-94, and 95-95, successfully defending her undisputed junior welterweight title which she had clinched by defeating Jessica McCaskill the prior year. Cameron's grasp on the junior welterweight belts traces back to 2021 when she emerged victorious against Melissa Hernandez in Las Vegas. With an unblemished record of 18 wins and 8 knockouts, Cameron, ranked as ESPN's No. 4 pound-for-pound fighter, has recently secured victory through decision in her last four bouts. For Taylor, who maintains her status as the undisputed lightweight champion, the defeat in her initial professional contest on home soil marked a pivotal moment. Despite her current residence and training base in Connecticut, Taylor remains an icon in Ireland's sports landscape, resonating as one of the nation's most revered athletic figures.
