Chantelle Cameron and Katie Taylor will be seen locking horns for the second time potentially in November in Dublin, Matchroom Sport chief Eddie Hearn has claimed.
Cameron and Taylor squared off on 20th May, with Cameron defending her undisputed junior welterweight crown against Taylor, at the latter’s home. After the ten round fight went the distance, it was Cameron who earned a majority decision victory, while Taylor suffered her first professional loss.
In the wake of the fight, Taylor was clearly in favor of an immediate rematch with her English rival. While there had been no lead on the date and venue so far, Hearn’s recent comments suggest that they are targeting the fight in November in Dublin.
“Katie Taylor is going to exercise that rematch clause against Chantelle Cameron,” said Hearn confirmed during the promotion of the Edgar Berlanga-Jason Quigley card at Madison Square Garden’s Hulu Theater. “We’re going to plan that fight probably for November time. It’s going to be a huge fight.”
The May 20 fight carried a rematch clause, and “KT” wasted no time in calling for a second encounter with Cameron.
“Congratulations to Chantelle on a fantastic performance,” stated Taylor following her loss last month. “Thank you for the opportunity to fight for your belts. I look forward to the rematch.”
“Il Capo”, on the other hand, didn’t accept it right away as she’s been looking to secure titles in other weight classes.
“I’ll speak to my team and see what’s next but I’m sick of keeping my belts,” noted Cameron following the win. “I want to go for some more belts.” [H/T Boxing Scene]
