Chantelle Cameron says she will target names like Katie Taylor and Jessica McCaskill if her proposed undisputed super lightweight clash with Kali Reis is delayed any further.
Cameron defended her WBC and IBF belts with a shutout victory over two-weight world champion at the O2 Arena on Saturday night, on the undercard of Joshua Buatsi’s win over Craig Richards.
A four-belt undisputed title showdown with WBA and WBO champion, Reis has been put on hold with the American sidelined with personal health issues.
Despite the pair entering a tournament and beating previous world champions Mary McGee and Jessica Camara respectively to set up a final, the 31-year-old Brit admits she is keen to continue with her career, with or without the Providence native, who has been vocal on social media in recent days to insist that the fight will happen.
“To be honest I don’t want to be waiting around,” Cameron told proboxing-fans.com after her win on Saturday.
“Obviously, I wish Kali Reis a speedy recovery and stuff, but for me and my own career I just want to get back out.
“It ain’t all about undisputed, I just want to kept active now.
These know it all conspiracy theorist are the best! 😆@chantellecam safe skills Saturday night. Have no doubt you’ll defend successfully. You already what it is 😉
See you soon.

“[I’ll] just see what happens. See when she can give a date and if there’s not a date set then [I’ll] crack on with something else.
“Obviously it’s a massive opportunity, but I think its kind of lost its spark now.
“I think the tournament was wicked, it was going to be unreal.
“We both had good wins, the final was going to happen and for me now it’s just kind of like I want the big fights now, undisputed or not.”
‘Il Capo’ has long been linked with a bout with undisputed lightweight champion, Katie Taylor who defended her titles with a thrilling split decision victory over Amanda Serrano at Madison Square Garden last month.
The Irish two-weight world champion could be set for a rematch with fellow pound-for-pound star, Serrano, but Cameron insists she would open to facing her as well as undisputed welterweight titlist, Jessica McCaskill.
“Yeah, great fight,” the Northampton native replied when asked about a potential fight with Taylor.
“Katie Taylor, [Jessica] McCaskill, anyone really.
“I just want to be in them big fights and that’s how you’re going to get remembered ain’t it, being in them kind of fights.”
