Undisputed Champions Face Off in Ireland

When Katie Taylor and Chantelle Cameron face off in Dublin on Saturday, history is expected to be made. The boxing lines favor Taylor as she fights in her homeland of Ireland for the first time in her professional career. She looks to become the first two-division undisputed champion by dethroning Cameron. But the champ, who is coming off her biggest victory, could just spoil these grand plans.

Taylor Finally Gets Homecoming Fight

At 36 years old and after 22 professional bouts, Taylor finally gets to thrill her home crowd in Dublin. It’s been something the undisputed lightweight champion has wanted for years. And it’s the reason why she’s the favorite on the boxing betting lines. Taylor will most likely get the benefit of the doubt in the event of a close fight.

But as far as skills go, few can match Taylor. Even Amanda Serrano, who many pegged as the best boxer outside of Taylor, was outboxed by Taylor. Serrano may have done more damage to Taylor, but the Irishwoman withstood her onslaught and methodically broke her down like she tends to do.

Against Cameron, Taylor is fighting a boxer who is modeled after her. Cameron boxes and even moves like Taylor. The difference is that Taylor will be a bit smaller and a few years older. But even if Taylor has lost a step, she’s still got the savvy to outmaneuver her British counterpart. Most boxing picks side with Taylor and it’s hard to go against her.

Cameron Must Embrace the Spotlight

Cameron is the next one to Taylor when it comes to being the face of women’s boxing. She’s already an undisputed champion and just turned back Jessica McCaskill, another undisputed champion. This is the fight that could push her into being the star that she’s supposed to be. But can she beat Taylor?

For one, Cameron faces several disadvantages. She’s less experienced when it comes to big fights and she is in enemy territory. The crowd will cheer everything Taylor does. They will cheer against Cameron and maybe even try to get into her head. But Cameron is also the bigger boxer and the more potent puncher.

Power is the great equalizer, as they say. And Cameron may just do more damage against Taylor. Still, that is just half the battle. To break boxing news, Cameron will have to go all the way and batter Taylor. It’s easier said than done as the gritty lightweight will likely survive anything Cameron dishes. Fortunately, the 32-year-old has the skills to pour it on.

Taylor vs Cameron Head-to-Head

Taylor is smaller than Cameron by a bit here. She’s 5-foot-5 compared to Cameron at 5-8. The champion also has a three-inch reach advantage and is four years Taylor’s junior. They both box in the orthodox stance.
