Chantelle Cameron Leaves Matchroom

Former Undisputed Junior Welterweight Champion Chantelle Cameron has left Matchroom Boxing. 

Cameron joined Matchroom in 2020, working her way through the 140-pound division. A win over Adriana Dos Santos Araujo secured her the WBC belt. She then unified by securing a victory over Victoria Bustos for the IBF belt before becoming undisputed with a win against Jessica McCaskill.

Her biggest success came against Katie Taylor last year. Cameron dominated the fight to retain her 140-pound undisputed title, albeit the scorecards had it as a majority decision. It was Taylor’s first defeat of her career. The rematch took place in the same year. However, Taylor won a majority decision to become a two-weight undisputed champion.  

Cameron was unhappy with the referee, seeing her first-round knockdown of Taylor ruled as a slip. Taylor repeatedly connected on Cameron with her head, going unpunished. Following Taylor’s win, Cameron called out Eddie Hearn’s apparent favoritism towards her. Since they were both under Matchroom, it did not come across well. Cameron was chasing a trilogy with Taylor. But Taylor chose to face Amanda Serrano in a rematch set for July 20. Cameron has now gone in a new direction. 

“Matchroom Boxing can today confirm that we reached an agreement last month to release Chantelle Cameron from her promotional deal. We would like to wish Chantelle all the best in her future endeavours.”
