IBO world champion Chantelle Cameron is eager to push herself to the pinnacle of the thriving women’s boxing scene as she prepares to return to action.
The Northampton lightweight (8-0, 5 KOs) heads to York Hall on April 26 to face Feriche Mashauri (7-3), who took another MTK Global fighter Tasha Jonas the full six rounds in March.
With unification bouts beckoning, Cameron is hopeful of taking part in super-fights sooner rather than later.
Cameron said: “It’s really exciting that women’s boxing is taking off. It needs big fights and the Claressa Shields vs. Christina Hammer was the first big one for a long time.
“The ball is rolling for more big women’s fights. It’s great to be a part of it.
“My aspirations for the rest of the year are simply to have as many fights as possible and challenge a world champion for their belt.
“I can stay at lightweight or step up to super-lightweight division but either way, I want to win another belt as soon as possible.
“The younger generation is now looking up to women fighters like me and it’s motivating to think I’m inspiring them as a fighter and a person. It helps me push harder and get results. Hard work and discipline pays off.”
Cameron, who has long been linked with a huge showdown with Katie Taylor, is joined on the iFL TV show by the likes of unbeaten London light-heavyweight Dan Azeez, Kazakh sensations Viktor Kotochigov and Nurtas Azhbenov and many more.
