Magnificent 8: Chantelle Cameron joins exclusive club after winning world title

Cameron is the second English female fighter to win a professional world title.

Britain has another world champion after Chantelle Cameron outpointed South American Adriana Dos Santos Araujo via unanimous decision in Milton Keynes.

The Jamie Moore-trained fighter dominated proceedings, winning every round to claim the vacant WBC junior welterweight title with a scorecard of 100-90.

Cameron - a former Team GB amateur standout - shared her joy at becoming just the second English female world champion.

"It's emotional and hard to put it into words. I was bricking it beforehand," said the unbeaten 29-year-old.

While it was an easy win, Cameron fought intelligently against an accomplished fighter in Araujo, who won bronze at the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio.

Cameron is the eighth British fighter to currently hold a professional world title, alongside Harper, Anthony Joshua, Tyson Fury, Josh Warrington, Billy Joe Saunders, Callum Smith and Josh Taylor.

Could Cameron face Taylor next?

Cameron had previously spoken of her interest in fighting Pound for Pound superstar Katie Taylor - the undisputed lightweight champion.

However, for a fight to come into fruition, the "Bray Bomber" would have to either move up a division or Cameron move down to 135-pounds.

Taylor recently outpointed Danish rival Delfine Persoon in their highly-anticipated rematch in the final week of Fight Camp in August.

Taylor is now set to defend her titles against mandatory challenger Miram Gutierrez on November 14 with a super-fight expected to take place next in 2021 as long as she comes through her Spanish opponent.

Seven-division world champion Amanda Serrano is the obvious option for Taylor next year. The pair were originally expected to face off this summer before the coronavirus pandemic.
