Congratulations to Chantelle and thank you for this opportunity. I’m looking forward to the rematch.
“I wasn’t surprised by how fast he was. I waited for everything that came my way, but tonight I fell short. I look forward to facing him next time. I knew it was a close fight, every round was close but this is boxing.”
Cameron wants to win more belts.
He said: “I am petrified. I’ve seen results go awry in the past. It was a close fight and Katie is a great boxer, the best per pound. My strength is to apply pressure. I don’t mind getting hit, so my corner got me off the leash.
“I beat (Jessica) McCaskill 147 in the last fight and now I’ve beaten another undisputed champion. I’m tired of holding on to my belts, I want to wear more belts.”
supportive Eddie Hearn He said there would be a second fight.
