'I like proving people wrong': Chantelle Cameron predicts pain for Katie Taylor in Dublin

Chantelle Cameron admits that if it wasn't for Katie Taylor calling her out on Instagram then there is a chance the two of them may never have fought.

Chantelle Cameron has thanked Katie Taylor for calling her out on Instagram, otherwise there is a chance the two of them may never have fought.

Taylor, the undisputed lightweight champion, is not in the habit of pursuing potential opponents and has rarely directly challenged a rival, but Taylor even tagged Cameron in the post to make her notice.
And speaking ahead of their title showdown this coming Saturday in Dublin, Cameron said: "If it wasn't Katie Taylor going on Instagram this fight would never have happened.
"It was out of character, so I wondered, something's going on here, but it was real."
You could forgive Cameron for wondering if a social media 'mistake' had been made, as the 31-year-old was hardly in the conversation to fight Taylor.
However, when Amanda Serrano pulled out of their rematch, 36-year-old Taylor was adamant her homecoming would remain intact and so turned to Cameron instead.
The undefeated Cameron is Britain's first female undisputed champion and fights weight above Taylor. However, the English boxer has often gone under the radar during her career.
"That's people's mistake. I like proving people wrong," Cameron says.
While fellow Britons Savannah Marshall and Natasha Jonas have dominated the headlines alongside Taylor, Serrano and Claressa Shields, Cameron has quietly become the best female fighter in the UK.

Even though it's Taylor's name all over the posters, it's normally the champion's name that comes first and that just adds fuel to the fire for Cameron.

Indeed, she added, ahead of the contest: "I have a fire in my belly. The amount I have been overlooked, already people are looking past me.
"I'm the champion, I've got the belts, but I'm not being treated like that."
