Chantelle Cameron Riding Wave of Women’s Boxing
IBO world champion Chantelle Cameron is eager to push herself to the pinnacle of the thriving women’s boxing scene as she prepares to return to action.
The Northampton lightweight (8-0, 5 KOs) heads to York Hall on April 26 to face Feriche Mashauri (7-3), who took another MTK Global fighter Tasha Jonas the full six rounds in March.
With unification bouts beckoning, Cameron is hopeful of taking part in super-fights sooner rather than later.
Cameron said: “It’s really exciting that women’s boxing is taking off. It needs big fights and the Claressa Shields vs. Christina Hammer was the first big one for a long time.
“The ball is rolling for more big women’s fights. It’s great to be a part of it.
“My aspirations for the rest of the year are simply to have as many fights as possible and challenge a world champion for their belt.
“I can stay at lightweight or step up to super-lightweight division but either way, I want to win another belt as soon as possible.
“The younger generation is now looking up to women fighters like me and it’s motivating to think I’m inspiring them as a fighter and a person. It helps me push harder and get results. Hard work and discipline pays off.”
Cameron, who has long been linked with a huge showdown with Katie Taylor, is joined on the iFL TV show by the likes of unbeaten London light-heavyweight Dan Azeez, Kazakh sensations Viktor Kotochigov and Nurtas Azhbenov and many more.
