The scores were 79-73, 78-73, 77-74 for Camara.
Camara had to overcome a knockdown, which came not long after the first bell had sounded to start the fight.
She outboxed, outlanded and outworked Hardy in the contest.
Hardy was unable to deal with Camara's steady jab, which helped set up the rest of her arsenal.
Hardy was entering the ring for the first time since losing a ten round unanimous decision in September of 2019, in a featherweight unification bout with Amanda Serrano.
And on her end, Camara was coming back from last year's ten round decision loss to Melissa St Vil.
Speaking of St Vil (14-4-4, 1 KO), she fought on the undercard and won an eight round unanimous decision over former world champion Olivia Gerula (18-19-2, 3 KOs).
The scores were 80-72, 78-74 and 78-74.
Also on the card, lightweight prospect Tyler Tomlin (11-0, 7 KOs) stopped Tyrone Luckey (13-14-4, 9 KOs) in three rounds. The contest was Tomlin's third fight of the year.
