Chantelle Cameron has publicly called for Katie Taylor to face her in a trilogy fight after losing in the pair’s rematch at the end of November in Dublin.
Taylor reversed the result from their initial encounter in May to become a two-weight undisputed champion when she claimed Cameron’s super-lightweight titles by majority-decision.
Northampton’s Cameron was however denied what looked a legitimate knockdown in the first round and later complained of Taylor’s persistent holding down the stretch.
The 32-year-old has taken to X, formerly Twitter, on Saturday afternoon to call for a rubber match with Ireland’s Taylor.
She wrote: “Had my break from boxing to clear my head and recover from my first loss. @katie_t86 we both took each others 0, let’s get the trilogy on next. I agreed the first fight in less than 48 hours no excuses. If you are anything like me you will not want to leave this at 1-1.”
Cameron suffered her first professional loss in her 19th outing against Taylor in the Irish capital after initially defeating her via majority-decision in May.
Promoter Eddie Hearn has alluded to a historic event at Dublin’s Croke Park next summer, with both a trilogy fight with Cameron and a rematch with Amanda Serrano touted as potential opponents.
The stadium has a capacity of 82,000 and has long been targeted as a venue for Taylor in her native Ireland.
Taylor, who also won Olympic gold in 2012, already holds a split-decision victory over Serrano after ousting the Puerto Rican at New York’s Madison Square Garden in April last year.
