Two of the best female boxers on the planet will meet again, when Katie Taylor and Chantelle Cameron clash in November 2023.
Here is everything you need to know ahead of this hotly-anticipated rematch between two of the finest female boxers on the planet…
Chantelle Cameron v Katie Taylor 2: Fight Preview
As soon as the words ‘And still’ boomed out of the microphone held by Ring Announcer David Diamante, both Chantelle Cameron and Katie Taylor already knew they would fight again.
A contractual rematch clause allows Taylor another opportunity to become a two-weight undisputed champion on November 25 when she challenges Cameron for her super-lightweight crown. And once again, she has home advantage back at the 3Arena in Dublin, the same venue as the first fight.
Knowing all of that does not dampen the fact that Cameron was the better fighter on May 20 and was a deserving winner, despite the 95-95 scorecard from Chicago judge Patrick Morley.
In the betting the tables have turned as well. Cameron is the odds-on favourite to emerge triumphant with Taylor the short-priced odds-against fighter in what should be another action-packed night of boxing in the Irish capital.

Chantelle Cameron Profile:
Becoming undisputed female super-lightweight champion by beating Jessica McCaskill in November 2002 was proof that Chantelle Cameron was the best of the best at 140lbs.
However, with a lack of depth in the weight division, ‘Il Capo’ knew she needed a household name on her record to take her career to a different level.
Against Taylor she was by no means a longshot and many experts tipped her to win. But going into Ireland to ruin a homecoming for the country’s Golden Girl elevated the challenge facing Cameron.
Cameron may have held all the belts and been the natural super-lightweight, but Taylor was the superstar and looked destined to go unbeaten for the rest of her career.
The fact that Cameron matched her opponent in nearly every department and two of the three judges recognised she deserved to win was a good look for the sport.
On November 25, all of that will be forgotten and the reset button will be pressed.
This time around she may have to be even more dominant to beat Taylor. Cameron knows that not only can she break Irish hearts again, but she has the chance to be the one that retires a legend.
With a stronger mindset, an unbreakable spirit and even greater self-belief,
few would bet against her. Once again Chantelle Cameron goes into the lion’s den to take on not just Katie Taylor but thousands of fans and an entire nation.
