Chantelle Cameron produced a stunning display to hand Katie Taylor a first professional defeat and remain undisputed super-lightweight world champion.

Despite coming into the fight defending her belts, Cameron was seen as a major underdog for the Dublin contest, which was the first home bout of Taylor’s seven-year professional career.

Cameron was ultimately rewarded for being the more aggressive fighter throughout a breathless 10-round contest, scoring a majority decision which moves her to 18-0 as a professional.

Taylor, who remains undisputed champion of the lightweight division and a hugely influential figure in the sport, drops to 22-1.

“It was a close fight,” Cameron said in the ring after her victory. “Katie’s a great fighter, pound-for-pound best woman boxer there is, and I turned up for the occasion.”
