What have they said?
Chantelle Cameron: “I am not complacent whatsoever, that’s why I put the work in. I feel like it’s the best camp I’ve ever had and I know that I’m going to be up against a Katie Taylor seeking revenge, I’ve taken that in my stride and worked hard because I know that this is not going to be a walk in the park.
“I always set a hot pace every time I go in there, I have a high work rate but I can also adapt to any situation. I can get stuck in and have a fight, but I can also box. I’m embracing the week and enjoying it for once, usually I hate all this but I am taking it in my stride and enjoying it.
“I’ve had great preparation, I’m the fittest and strongest that I have ever been, I don’t have a torn tricep this time, so I am good to go.”
Katie Taylor: “I’m very grateful for this opportunity again, I have a second chance and I just can’t wait to fight at this stage. Whether I am seen as the underdog or the favourite, whoever walks first or second, it’s irrelevant, I am just hungry for the rematch, I can’t wait to step in there on Saturday and perform the way I know I can.
“I don’t really take too much notice of what people are saying to be honest, I am very single-minded and the only people I listen to are my team and my family, the people that I trust. I understand that this is a huge fight, I understand it is must-win for me, I know I am going to perform to the best of my ability on Saturday and it’s going to be a completely different fight to last time and I am just excited to showcase that.
“I feel a lot better this time around. I hate all the talk, I hate all these press conferences, there’s nothing to say, I am just excited and ready. I am always ready for whatever comes my way, ready to dig deep if I have to, that’s why I put my body through the trenches week in, week out to be ready for these situations.
“This is what every fighter dreams of, to headline a huge sold-out show like this, it’s going to be another amazing night on Saturday, the atmosphere is going to be electric again, may the best fighter win.”
Tim RicksonBBN Editor: “The first fight was a thriller, they went toe to toe, but, for me, Cameron won handily. It was nowhere near a draw so I feel like the ringside judges were biased that night to score it so close, despite giving it correctly to Cameron, their scores make it appear like they did it grudgingly. She won eight rounds in my view, at the very least seven, but two had it 6-4 and one had it even, which was a diabolical result. When it was announced as a majority decision, everyone held their breath, thinking 'why isn't unanimous?!' Chantelle told me herself that she immediatley thought she was going to be stitched up when she heard the result, knowing she had won the fight clearly. All I hope is that the judges won't do the same in this rematch.
"It was a convincing win. She was busier, bolder, stronger, dominant, aggressive; and, for me, she really beat Taylor up. I believe that Taylor will come back with a different game plan, I'd expect her to box and move this time, not stand and exchange, to sword fence like an amateur and basically just get her shots off and then get out the way. Cameron, I also expect to be better, but to do the same thing – be strong, busy, advancing.
“I predict Cameron to win on points again, with a unanimous decision performance, but scored closer than it really should be, just like last time. So I think she could be stitched up again away from home in Ireland with a majority or mixed decision, at the worst case a draw to set up the trilogy.”
