Katie Taylor lost the long-awaited match against her people

Irish boxer Katie Taylor’s homecoming party didn’t have the happy ending her compatriots were hoping for, as the fighter suffered her first professional loss on Saturday when she lost to England’s Chantal Cameron by majority decision.

The 10-round title fight saw a scoreline of 95-95, 96-94, 96-94 in favor of Cameron, a result that left the approximately 10,000 spectators who gathered at the 3Arena in Dublin, Ireland, cold.

Taylor suffered the first blemish on her record in April 2022 when she faced Puerto Rican Amanda Serrano in a rematch of the successful clash at Madison Square Garden. He is now 22-1.

He moved up from lightweight to super lightweight to challenge for Cameron’s super lightweight straps. With this decision, both retained their championships: Taylor as the undisputed lightweight champion and Cameron as the super lightweight champion.

According to local newspapers, the result seemed incontrovertible. Some media reported that Cameron was aggressive during most of the 10 rounds. He made a dent in Ireland with power and precision in his strokes.
