Chantelle Cameron Eyes Katie Taylor, Jessica McCaskill in 2020

Chantelle Cameron is priming herself for a world title-laden 2020 and wants to spearhead another surge in the popularity of women’s boxing.

Having won WBC final eliminators in two separate divisions last year, Cameron is poised for world title mega-fights against the likes of Katie Taylor and Jessica McCaskill in 2020.

With close friend Savannah Marshall also widely tipped to collide with middleweight queenpin Claressa Shields, Cameron is enthusiastic over the prospect of women’s boxing hitting new, dizzying heights.


Cameron said: “I’m back in camp now and I’m hopeful there’ll be some big news soon. While I wait, I just concentrate on working hard and putting that graft in.

“I look back on 2019 and it was a really important year for me. There was a lot of pressure on me in those two WBC world title final eliminators in two different divisions but I won both.

“First of all, I had to face the supposed knockout queen Anisha Basheel and I boxed her head off. Then I beat Anahi Ester Sanchez, who’d given Katie Taylor and Jessica McCaskill good fights.

“Looking ahead to what’s in store for 2020, I believe both my career and women’s boxing will get even bigger and better. There are some huge mega-fights that can happen this year.

“You’ve got myself against Katie, which has been talked about for a long time and then there’s other massive match-ups like Savannah Marshall challenging Claressa Shields which could happen.

“The thing is with women’s boxing, the more competitive high-profile fights like this we see, the more the coverage and the quality will improve. The recognition is coming and the whole thing is evolving quickly.”

News of Cameron’s next assignment will be forthcoming in due course.

And I hope women boxing break all the odds and establish. Especially 12 rounds in championship bout and 3 minutes each round.:boxing:
