Chantelle Cameron beats Anahi Ester Sanchez by unanimous decision to become mandatory for WBC World Super Lightweight title
Chantelle Cameron beat Anahi Ester Sanchez by unanimous decision to secure the mandatory spot for the WBC World Super Lightweight title.
The 28-year-old from Northampton showed class and poise to control the three-weight world champion over the ten rounds at York Hall in London, comfortably outpointing her on all three scorecards 100-89 100-89 100-90.
And the Brit is now in line for a shot at Jessica McCaskill's super lightweight belt, although she is also hoping to secure a huge clash with Ireland's Katie Taylor.
After her victory, Cameron said: "Another win. Was a tough one but taken a step up in levels and shown im up there with the world class opposition. A lot taken away from fight and massive respect to Sanchez.
"The BIGGEST thank you to (my trainers) Jamie Moore and Nigel Travis for saving my career and helping me get back into the ring this year. If it wasn’t for you two guys I probably would be working a 9-5.
