After her win over KT, Cameron sat down for an interview with TalkSport. During this conversation, the interviewer asked Chantelle whether Katie Taylor was the toughest opponent she has ever faced in her career. Surprisingly, she picked her rival Mary McGee over Katie Taylor as her hardest test and explained why the former was a much bigger threat.

“I wouldn’t say she actually was in all honesty. I think Mary McGee was. She was bigger, she was stronger. Katie’s an amazing boxer, literally unbelievable. Her boxing IQ is second to none. But for toughness of the fight, I’d definitely say Mary McGee.”

“The toughest part of boxing Katie Taylor was probably keeping my composure and my nerves coming into such a hostile crowd. She’s so fast and sharp, but toughness wise I definitely would say that’d be Mary McGee.”

The judges scored the contest 100-90, 99-91, and 99-92 in favor of the British champion. However, the scorecards do not reflect the complete story of the fight as McGee landed many good shots in the ten-round bout. But Cameron’s speed and movement were too tough to deal with for Mary McGee and as a result, she absorbed a lot of punches.

In the end, both boxers showed great heart and durability as they absorbed a tremendous amount of power punches and took the fight to the distance.
