“I always knew I was wrong for Katie Taylor.”
The first time around, Cameron was brought forward as an option because the original opponent, Amanda Serrano, picked up an injury that ruled her out of the fight.
Undisputed and undefeated in her own right, the English fighter was the perfect replacement to make sure that Taylor’s homecoming had the spectacle that it deserved.
However, Cameron completely spoiled the party in Dublin when she beat the previously undefeated star, and now that they are running it back, she is more confident than ever.
“I’m feeling full of confidence,” Cameron told Boxing Scene. “Obviously been there done that in May and now I’m coming back here. I’ve kind of had a taste of what it’s all about. I’ve put all of the work in.
“I’ve done everything that has been asked of me and I’m fitter and stronger than I’ve ever been. I’m just in a good place. No matter what happens on Saturday night I know that I’ve got no excuses. I’m the best version I can be.
“I always knew I was wrong for Katie Taylor. That’s why I always wanted the fight. Nothing changes now. I think all that changes is that Katie is going to come in desperate to get that revenge and I’m coming in knowing that I can beat her and I beat her not on my best night either.
“So I’m coming in there full of confidence knowing that it’s going to be a more convincing win for me. The blueprint is there but I’m going to make sure it’s better this time. I didn’t box my best.”
Chantelle Cameron has changed how she thinks of Katie Taylor after first fight
Last time around, Taylor had an aura of invincibility about her, and Cameron admits that she was “in awe of that” but after her victory she has changed how she thinks of the Irish woman.
“Me at my best and everything I’ve been doing in the gym, I’m too much for Katie Taylor. I’m too stubborn, my work rate is too high, I’m too strong and I’m too big. I know that I’ve never been this fit. As long as I do on Saturday what I’ve been doing then Katie isn’t going to stand a chance.
“I’m going to be all over her like a rash! May 20th I was in awe of Katie Taylor. This time I’m not in awe of her. I’ve already beat her, so now I’m coming here, defending my belts and it’s more now for me that I’m cementing my own career. I know that this can open up doors for me.
“I’m going in there full of spite and full of aggression knowing that I’ve just got to finish the job here.”
