Chantelle Cameron vs Katie Taylor 2 live updates, results: Taylor gets revenge and claims undisputed at 140

For weeks Katie Taylor said that her rematch with Chantelle Cameron would be a completely different fight and the Irish icon was true to her word, scoring a hard-fought 10-round majority decision over Chantelle Cameron to claim the undisputed super lightweight championship. Official scores were 98-92, 96-94, and 95-95.

Taylor (23-1, 6 KOs) was determined to avenge the only loss of her career and she got off to an electrifying start. The victory sees the Bray native equal Claressa Shields and Terence Crawford, as the only three two-weight world champions in the four-belt era. It was a remarkable triumph and perhaps a career-best win.

“Two-weight undisputed world champion, that sounds very nice,” said a jubilant Taylor during her post-fight interview with DAZN. “That was the longest six months of my life, waiting for this rematch. This is my real homecoming tonight. Whoever wrote me off doesn’t know me very well. I was offended that I was the underdog for this fight.”

“The last fight you seen the worst of me and the best of Chantelle. That was a close fight. Tonight, you saw the real me and when I box like that, no one can beat me. Let’s get the trilogy at Croke Park.”

There was no languishing on the ropes from Taylor this time, and conversely, there was a concerted effort to keep the action at ring center. One moment of drama occurred in the opening round when Cameron appeared to deck Taylor with a sharp jab, but the referee immediately ruled no knockdown. Staying composed, the challenger then did a great job of avoiding Cameron’s jab and frequently countered off that shot before escaping off to the sides and finding space.

Cameron (18-1, 8 KOs) struggled to get set against this more mobile version of Taylor, whose speed was evident in the early going. The Northampton-born champ did begin to find success in the middle rounds, punishing the body and bullying the challenger on the inside, but she was distracted somewhat by a large laceration on her forehead that she sustained from an accidental butt in the third.

When the fight began to turn slightly, Taylor reached deep down into that vast reservoir of championship experience to win rounds when it mattered most. Buoyed by a fever-pitch home support, the Irish warrior ignored the exhaustion and let her hands go in rapid-fire bursts down the stretch. Cameron just didn’t have the sharpness and was a step behind on speed.

This was an epic victory for a 37-year-old fighter who looked as good as ever in exacting revenge, setting up a gargantuan 2024.
