Unified super-lightweight champion Chantelle Cameron exchanged verbals with America’s Jessica McCaskill two days out from their undisputed title clash in Abu Dhabi.
Cameron enters the bout in possession of the WBC, IBF and Ring Magazine straps at 140lbs. The vacant WBA and WBO titles will also be on the line on Saturday night.
McCaskill meanwhile steps down from welterweight where she currently reigns as undisputed champion following a victory over Cecilia Braekhus in 2020.
The American looks to repeat a feat only managed by Claressa Shields in becoming undisputed champion in two separate weight divisions.
The Illinois fighter also held the WBC and WBA titles at 140lbs before making the move to 147lbs.
McCaskill wasted no time in sticking it on her opponent at the fight week press conference on Thursday.
“I must say Chantelle, I don’t think you really understanding what you’re getting yourself into. The last girl I fought, she begged her coach to stop the fight. She argued with her coach after three rounds because she fought she was gonna die.
“This is the hurt business. I’m very good at my job, I take it very seriously.”
Cameron responded with a warning of her own. “When I land on your chin, we’re gonna see your face drop. I’m telling you now, we’ll see.
“She’s talking about her last opponent. I was watching and it was boring. I’m gonna stand there, I’m gonna trade and I’m gonna beat her in every single department.”
A potential match-up against pound-for-pound star Katie Taylor may also lie on the horizon for the winner of Saturday’s bout.
McCaskill has history with the Irish fighter after losing out to the Irish fighter back in 2017.
Cameron has long targeted a bout with the Irishman, and could move one step closer with victory this weekend.
