Chantelle Cameron Decisions Gonzalez, Retains IBO Strap

By Chris Williamson

York Hall, London - IBO women's lightweight champion Chantelle Cameron successfully defended her belt while winning the vacant WBC silver championship with an entertaining, bloody ten round decision win over the tough Mexican Jessica Gonzalez (now 7-5-2).

Cameron (8-0) was dominant throughout against a challenger in Gonzales who was unfortunate last time out in a WBA challenge when a head clash led to a close five round technical decision loss against Hyun Mi Choi in South Korea.

Cameron established the jab immediately, moving around the ring well and flooring Gonzalez in the very first round, although referee Ian John-Lewis ruled it a slip.


The home fighter again got the better of the exchanges in the second as a nasty cut opened above the eye of the challenger as a result of a head clash.

By the third round the champion’s jab was established as a key weapon along with a right uppercut which visibly hurt the visitor. Cameron’s footwork was also proving far superior.

By the middle rounds the fight was becoming difficult to watch, with Cameron hurting the awkward Mexican with a left hook and increasingly the hard straight right hand.

A short right uppercut from Cameron as the Mexican advanced dramatically floored Gonzalez in the seventh round. The champion followed up with several more uppercuts but it proved too late in the two minute round to finish matters.

The brave Gonzalez lasted the distance before Cameron was awarded the decision with scores of 100-89 and 100-98 twice, with Gonzalez having a point taken away in the ninth.

Cameron remains on a potential collision course with Ireland’s unified WBA/ IBF champ Katie Taylor, although promotional politics - Cameron is with Cyclone while Taylor fights under the Matchroom banner - may prevent the match happening in the near future. Cameron’s team confirmed to boxing scene that a match with Belgian 41-1 WBC champ Delfine Persoon is more likely.

Southampton’s Jack Hillier won his third professional fight (all wins) with a third round stoppage against southpaw Kamil Jaworek (now 5-11) to open a big show at London’s York Hall. Hillier toyed with the overmatched Pole before a beautiful left hook to the liver floored Jaworek in the third before a replica of the same punch ended the contest later in the very same round.

Kent super-bantamweight Martin Hillman (now 11-6) ground out a hard fought four round decision and first win in three starts against gritty Yorkshireman Russ Midgley (now 1-21-2). The referee scored every session to Hillman, posting a card of 40-36.

Athletic Wimbledon welterweight Louis Adolphe advanced to 9-1 in beating rugged William Warbuton convincingly over six rounds. Warbuton’s record, now 26-143-10 doesn’t tell the story of just how dangerous or tough he is but Adolphe’s pressure and variety was far too much for the Lancashire veteran, without ever looking like forcing the stoppage. Adolphe punished Warbuton to the body and moved around the ring very well. Adolphe’s sole defeat was a disqualification loss to fellow prospect Nathan Mcintosh a year ago. The referee scored every round to Adolphe, posting a 60-54 scorecard.

Former southern area middleweight champ Grant Dennis knocked out 50-fight veteran Harry Matthews (15-33-2) with an overhand right over the jab just 48 seconds into the first round. Dennis, now 12-1, is now campaigning at super-middleweight.
