Six months after they met in the ring with the undisputed super-lightweight world title on the line, Chantelle Cameron and Katie Taylor will do it again.
The fighters return to Dublin to square off for a second time this year, after Cameron successfully defended her belts against undisputed lightweight champion Taylor in front of a partisan crowd at the 3Arena in May.
Taylor gets a second shot at Cameron's belts as the Irish fighter looks to become undisputed in two weight classes, but the Briton is confident she can once again stand up to the challenge.
“Last time out I pulled off one of the best ever away wins against the best female fighter on the planet,” said Cameron.
“To go over to Ireland for her homecoming with my belts on the line and beat her was a brilliant experience, but beating her on November 25 will surpass that as I know what to expect now."
Here's everything you need to know ahead of Cameron vs. Taylor 2.
- Date: Saturday, November 25
The eagerly anticipated rematch between Katie Taylor and Chantelle Cameron has been officially confirmed for Saturday, November 25 in Dublin’s 3Arena. The undercard start time is yet to be confirmed but main event ringwalks are expected at around 10pm.
Last time out I pulled off one of the best ever away wins against the best female fighter on the planet,” said Cameron. “To go over to Ireland for her homecoming with my belts on the line and beat her was a brilliant experience, but beating her on November 25 will surpass that as I know what to expect now.
“I’ve boxed at that high level with a huge amount of pressure on me and the crowd against me. Going into November 25 I’m more than prepared this time. I know what it feels like now and I’m going to go in there with more aggression and energy and I’m confident of getting the job done in better fashion.
“I’m going to be a lot better in the rematch. In the gym we’re correcting mistakes that I’ve made. There were little things that I was doing during the first fight that led to me being headbutted a lot – that’s why my face was very bruised up at the end of the fight.
“Going back to Ireland to beat Katie Taylor twice in a row will show that it wasn’t just a lucky night for me and an off night for Katie. I said it last time – I think I’m all wrong for Katie. I’m too big, I’m too strong and my will to win is too strong. I’m going to be there all night long. Katie picked the wrong fighter to fight.”
Katie Taylor 2:
“I’m delighted the rematch has been made and really can’t wait for another huge night in November,” said Taylor. “I relish challenges like this and these are the occasions I live for.”
