Matchroom Boxing makes a big signing with Chantelle Cameron. The 12-0 Brit nicknamed “Wham Bam Chan” is the best women’s boxing lightweight in Britain and second in the world on BoxRec.
Chantelle Cameron is excited to be on teams with Matchroom and Sky Sports to further develop her platform.
“Matchroom and Sky are a huge platform,” said Cameron. “It’s always been in my sights and I’ve not had the chance until now to link-up, I can’t wait to get going. Day by day under Jamie and Nigel I’m improving but I’m still not the finished article. This time has allowed me to work in different areas I probably wouldn’t have focused on in proper training camp.”
Now having such big promoters behind her, she’s ready to take on the champs in two divisions now that she’s become mandatory.
“I wasn’t expecting to become mandatory in two weights, it was a bit of a shock but I’m delighted with MTK and Jamie since we’ve all come together. The last two fights have been great matchmaking and now a World Title shot is not too far away either at Lightweight or Super-Lightweight.”
Chantelle Cameron and Katie Taylor
Chantelle Cameron has been pushed to fight Katie Taylor, best lightweight in the world. The two have been connected since Cameron’s first fight. The two seemed destined to fight in the future sooner or later.
“Before my first pro fight people were asking me to fight Katie. I’m a massive fan, she’s a legend and I look up to her but at the same time I’m her Mandatory and I want that fight. That being said, I don’t want to be hanging around waiting – it could be years away, she has a fight lined up and is also talking about other fights.”
Cameron has her mind set on her goals. She is just putting in the work to get to her goals right now.
“I want to win World Titles myself and can’t be sitting around waiting for that fight. As it stands, I’m not sure what the next move is given what’s happened with COVID-19 but I’ll be ready to go when the call comes. I’m looking to put on a good show for my Matchroom debut, first impressions last.”
Eddie Hearn is excited to have yet another great young talent under the Matchroom Stable. He has had his eye on Cameron and is looking forward to working together.
“I’m delighted to welcome Chantelle Cameron to the team,” said Eddie Hearn. “I’ve been watching her closely over the last couple of years and she’s a huge talent – exciting, relentless and punches very hard. I believe she is going to go on and become a multi-weight World Champion. Her next fight will be for a World Title and we’ll announce it in the next couple of weeks. Women’s boxing is on fire right now and I’m so excited to be a part of it and deliver huge nights on sky sports and DAZN.”
