Big time boxing comes to the 3Arena in Dublin this Saturday night, and in the main event, home hero Katie Taylor will attempt to annex the undisputed super lightweight title in a revenge mission against Chantelle Cameron. Cameron vs Taylor tops a bill packed full of Irish talent.

DAZN televise Cameron vs Taylor live, while Matchroom promote.

Cameron (18-0, 8KOs) came into her original meeting with Taylor (22-1, 7KOs) in May as firmly the B-side and underdog, despite arriving in the Emerald Isle holding WBC, WBA, IBF, WBO and IBO belts, but left with all of her gold intact as she expertly diffused her decorated opponent to take a majority verdict.

Prior to that clash, Cameron had completed the full set of belts at 140 pounds, having previously held the WBC and IBF crowns, by outpointing Jessica McCaskill, while Taylor had reigned as undisputed lightweight queen, and briefly a world champion at ten stone before moving back down in weight. Taylor still holds all four major titles at 135 pounds.

Prediction: It should be a white-hot atmosphere in Dublin, and they will be desperate for their hero to prevail in the rematch. Cameron looked too sharp for Taylor first time around, and 140 pounds doesn’t suit the Irishwoman for me, and I see Cameron repeating the trick via close decision to retain.

On the undercard, Gary Cully (16-1, 10KOs) looks to get back on track after suffering a shock first pro defeat last time out, as he takes on former British title challenger Reece Mould (18-1, 6KOs). Cully was caught cold and taken out in three rounds against Jose Felix in May, and is matched tough here, with Mould’s only loss via stoppage in 2021 in a spirited effort against Leigh Wood. I favour Cully to bounce back with an inside schedule win here.

 

Paddy Donovan (11-0, 8KOs) also sees action, and the Limerick ‘Real Deal’ can halt Danny Ball (13-1-1, 6KOs) in their welterweight encounter set for ten.

 

Skye Nicholson (8-0, 0KOs) defends her Interim WBC featherweight title, and she should retain on the scorecards against Lucy Wildheart (10-2, 4KOs).

 

Zelfa Barrett (29-2, 16KOs) ticks over on the bill, and ‘Brown Flash’ gets an eight rounder at super featherweight against Costin Ion (10-4-2, 5KOs) who has never been halted, so Barrett may have to make do with a points win.

 

Unbeaten prospect John Cooney (9-0, 2KOs) can take his first professional title, the vacant Celtic super featherweight belt, with a victory on points after ten against Liam Gaynor (10-4, 0KOs).

 

Popular heavyweight Thomas Carty (6-0, 5KOs) also appears, and he should remove Dan Garber (5-1, 1KO) from battle before the end of their scheduled eight rounds.

 

The Irish light heavyweight title is on the line, and Emmet Brennan (1-0, 0KOs) can outscore the champion, Jamie Morrissey (5-0-1, 1KO), while lightweight Giorgio Visioli makes his debut, and it should be a points win over four against Lee Anthony Sibley (3-1, 1KO).
