She did it. Katie Taylor ended all the whispers that she was getting too old, that her speed and skill was starting to decline due to age after she lost to Chantelle Cameron 6 months ago via a decision. All of those whispers got silenced inside the 3Arena in Dublin Ireland last Saturday as Katie put on a boxing display for the ages to defeat Chatelle Cameron by a majority decision. 98-92, 96-94, 95-95
Following the fight the 2012 Olympic Gold Medalist showed no signs of slowing down as she called for a welcome home fight at Croke Park asking for the rematch with Amanda Serrano and eluded to the possibility of a trilogy matchup with Chantelle Cameron which would be the first in the history of Women’s Championship Boxing.
Cyborg who was rumored for a possible superfight matchup against Katie Taylor last year in a true MMA X Boxing crossover fight that would have been similar to the Francis Ngannou X Tyson Fury fight had this to say about the performance, “Katie Taylor is such a global icon for the sport of Boxing and a real representative for all women in sports. I love seeing her achieve her goals and look forward to seeing her finally get to fight in Croke Park.”
Cyborg who is now 2-0 in professional boxing since those initial rumors of a superfight back in 2019 has now scheudled her return to the professional boxing ring when she will face the #3 ranked female fighter in the USA Jan 19th in Temecula California as the main event of WFC 163, get your tickets to watch Cyborg fight Boxing HERE.
