Even after everything she has achieved during her storied career, Katie Taylor finds herself in the midst of something new.
The undisputed lightweight champion is putting the final touches to preparations for her rematch with Chantelle Cameron.
Unbeaten Cameron travelled to Dublin in May and ruined Taylor’s highly anticipated homecoming, successfully defending her 140lb titles by outboxing and outfighting the Irish hero over twelve frantic rounds.
Taylor has had six months to reflect on the first professional defeat of her career and put plans in place for the return.
There are material prizes on offer on November 25th - becoming the super lightweight champion would allow Taylor to add to her collection of belts by becoming one of a very select group of fighters to have claimed undisputed titles in multiple weight classes - but when you throw in the opportunity to gain revenge over the only fighter to have beaten her as a professional and the chance to prove those who suggest she may have passed her peak wrong, it all adds up to a potentially special night.
“I think it will be one of the best wins of my career,” Taylor told BoxingScene.com “It’s hard to rank it in terms of the other ones but as I said, the next fight is always the most important fight but this one definitely feels like a must win fight for me. I’m definitely looking forward to just the revenge I guess and making things right.
"A lot of people I think are doubting me and I love going into this type of fight where people are doubting me. I think this could be one of the greatest nights of my career.”
