Chantelle Cameron has spoken for the first time since her split from her trainer Jamie Moore.

The 32-year-old Cameron lost her rematch with Katie Taylor last November, which had followed Taylor losing via majority decision to Cameron in May. But Cameron revealed that she had spoken about splitting from Moore even before the rematch with Taylor.

“It was not after the [second] Katie fight,” Cameron told Boxing King Media. “The talks happened with me, my manager, and my family before the Katie rematch.

Something was missing. It got to a point where I had the fight, but I felt like I was coming to the end of my career.”

Cameron, under Moore following her split from Shane McGuigan, won the undisputed super lightweight title. Regardless, she said that time is not on her side and that she doesn’t have many fights left in her career, which will now be guided by her new trainer Grant Smith – starting with a third fight against Taylor.

“I’m 32 and have a couple of fights left, but I needed a change,” Cameron said. “It wasn’t the loss. It just ended up happening at the worst time.

“If I’d have won the fight and then changed, people wouldn’t have been able to paint this picture. But I needed to do what was best for me. I’ve got no regrets, the future’s bright and now I’m excited for what’s next.”
