Chantelle Cameron will finally earn a shot at all the belts at 140-pounds on November 5th at the Etihad Arena in Abu Dhabi as she steps in with America’s heavy-handed Jessica McCaskill.
Northampton’s Cameron added the IBF strap to her WBC belt in a unification with Mary McGee in October last year before successfully defending her unified title seven months later against Victoria Bustos in a dominant ten-round display. McCaskill meanwhile is no stranger to undisputed title bouts, with the Chicago fighter already holding all the marbles up at welterweight, a crown she has successfully defended three times since initially upsetting Cecilia Braekhus in March, 2021. The American emerged victorious again in a rematch and looks to cement her legacy by becoming only the second ever fighter to become undisputed in two separate weight divisions, achieved only by pound-for-pound star Claressa Shields. ‘Caskilla’ also has history at 140-pounds, having reigned as unified champion between 2018 and 2019 respectively before making the jump up to welterweight.
The vacant WBO and WBA straps will be on the line as previous unified titleholder Kali Reis embarks on an acting career in Hollywood following her casting in the fourth season of ‘True Detective’, leaving ‘Il Capo’ and Caskilla to clash in a contest being dubbed as ‘All the Marbles’ by Matchroom and DAZN.
The card will be headlined by Dmitry Bivol‘s mandatory defence versus Gilberto Ramirez, while Joe Cordina also seeks his first successful defence of his 130-pound crown against Shavkatdzhon Rakhimov.
