Betting preview: Cameron to unify division, Babic to continue KO streak

Cameron can unify the super lightweight division while heavyweights Babic and Fisher can continue their rise through the ranks.

Chantelle Cameron, Mary McGee, Kali Reis and Jessica Camara fight it out for 140lbs supremacy in a super lightweight tournament beginning this weekend.

Britain's Cameron will look to unify the division at London's O2 Arena when she collides against Mary McGee with the WBC, IBF and Ring Magazine titles on the line.

The pair will headline Saturday's card following the withdrawal of Dillian Whyte who was scheduled to take on Otto Wallin in a WBC eliminator for the WBC heavyweight title.

While it's a big dent on the card, it doesn't take away the fact that female's boxing is going from strength to strength and it will now take centre stage.

Cameron (14-0, 8 KOs) displayed an impressive performance last time out in her maiden WBC world title defence, beating former champion Melissa Hernández by TKO in the fifth round to retain the green and gold strap.

McGee (27-3, 15 KOs) comes into the fight with increased momentum, notching seven straight wins since her world title loss in 2013 and picking up the IBF super lightweight title on the way. The American's last win came via a ninth round TKO against Deanha Hobbs to retain her crown.

When: Saturday, October 30

Where: O2 Arena, London

How to watch: DAZN from 7pm BST

Cameron to progress into the final?

The winner will take on the winner of the other semi-final between WBA titlist Kali Reis and Canada's Cobra Jessica Camara.

American two-weight world Champion Kali Reis (18-7-1, 5 KOs) retained her WBA world title and won the vacant IBO strap in August 2021 with a convincing unanimous decision against challenger Diana Prazak.

Meanwhile, Camara (8-2) beat former world champion Heather Hardy impressively last time out, scoring a unanimous decision to hand Hardy her second career loss - the other being against Amanda Serrano - and dramatically boosted the Canadian's ranking in the 140lbs division.

Cameron - trained by Jamie Moore - is undefeated from 14 bouts, winning eight of them inside the distance and has won world titles in two divisions.

At one point Cameron was linked with a showdown against Katie Taylor but talk has since cooled, forcing the former Team GB star to take another option in the 'Road to Undisputed'.

There is no doubt that if she can progress and become undisputed champion then perhaps Taylor - the current undisputed champion - will take more notice of her rival. For now, Cameron must focus on the job at hand and McGee is no fool.

While she has three defeats on her record, she has not tasted a loss since 2013 with her last two wins coming inside the distance. Despite the punching prowess McGee possesses, we expect Cameron's ring IQ and boxing skills to earn her a huge victory in London.

Craig Richards vs Marek Matyja

Craig Richards

Craig Richards returns for the first time since his brave defeat to Dmitry Bivol earlier this year and is planning another world title tilt at light heavyweight.

He faces Poland's Marek Matyja - a fighter who is 20-2-2 and while his resume is respectable Ricahrds will come through unscathed.

There are a lot of domestic dust-ups on the radar for Richards but the easiest one to make would be against Joshua Buatsi - who also fights under the Matchroom banner.

Alen Babic vs Eric Molina

Alen Babic

Babic is back and is looking to make a statement of intent against former heavyweight world title challenger Eric Molina.

The Croat was originally slated to face Australian Lucas Browne only for him to pull out due to visa issues. Molina has been in the ring with Anthony Joshua and Deontay Wilder and has certainly got more experience than Babic.

However, given the result of his last performance - which saw him destroyed inside five rounds by Fabio Wardley - Molina appears to just be here for the payday and Babic will take care of him even quicker than Wardley.

Johnny Fisher vs Alvaro Terrero

Johnny Fisher only has three wins under his belt as he begins his journey as a professional but there is a lot of hype around this heavyweight.

For this fight alone he sold more than 1200 tickets and is already becoming a fan favourite. With Tyson Fury, Joshua and Dillian Whyte already established, it is an exciting time in boxing and to see a new rising heavyweight in Fisher.

Mark Tibbs trains him and he is the man previously behind Whyte and more recently Billy Joe Saunders. This fight will be over in quick fashion too but Fisher is certainly somebody to keep a close eye on.
