Chantelle Cameron added the WBA and WBO title to her collection to become undisputed super lightweight champion, dominating undisputed welterweight champion Jessica McCaskill over 10 rounds.
Cameron and McCaskill would trade early, with the Brit coming off the better in the first round, as she managed to get behind the jab, whilst McCaskill looked for a brawl.
Cameron stuck to her game plan, as McCaskill just could not get into a rhythm as she appeared frustrated. McCaskill was struggling to close down the distance too, as Cameron continued to keep her at bay.
Round four saw McCaskill try and close the range but would end up eating a huge uppercut from Cameron. Cameron continued her success in round five, catching McCaskill clean on multiple occasions, and marching down her opponent as she continued to extend an inevitable lead.
Round seven would see McCaskill finally find some success. A cut would open up on the bridge of Cameron’s nose, which would spur the American on. However, Cameron did not let the cut deter her as she continued to work behind her jab.
McCaskill came on strong in the ninth, but the fight had slipped away, going into the final round, the American needed a stoppage, which she couldn’t find, despite a spirited effort in the final round, it was not enough.
