Chantelle Cameron Stops Viviane Obenauf, Wins IBO Crown

By Elliot Foster

Chantelle Cameron put on a glittering display as she outlined her world level credentials.

The Northampton girl stepped up to fight for the vacant IBO female lightweight crown and made short work of her opponent.

Cameron moved to 5-0, exclusively live on Channel 5 in the UK, as she dispatched of former Katie Taylor foe Viviane Obenauf at the Leicester Arena.


The fight came as part of the undercard to Anthony Yigit’s bid to retain his European super-lightweight belt against Joe Hughes –– and it in some ways stole the show.

Cameron was punch-perfect against the Swiss-based Brazilian, failing to put a foot wrong and dominating throughout as she forced the corner of her foe to protect her at the end of round six by withdrawing their fighter.

And now that there is a trinket around the waste of Cameron, there will be plenty to shout about for a woman who knows her way around the ring.

“I just got behind my jab and went to work,” Cameron said afterwards.

“I loved it in there and got caught with some good shots which shows that there is still plenty to work on.

“I like being hit because it switches me on. This announces me, sends a warning sign and I’m looking forward to pushing on now after going back to the gym and working on things with [my coach] Shane [McGuigan].”

Obenauf, in defeat, was stopped for the first time.

Meanwhile, both Jahmaine Smyle and Lennox Clarke produced a war of attrition for a minor trinket.

The vacant IBO Continental super-middleweight title was at stake between the pair, but it was Halesowen’s Clarke who was the victor after 10 enthralling rounds with all three scoring judges handing in tallies of 97 points to 92.

And Kyle Williams stopped Szilveszter Kanalas inside two rounds.
