Chantelle Cameron will get her crack at all the marbles before the end of the year.
The Northampton super-lightweight will face undisputed welterweight queen Jessica McCaskill on November 5.
The pair will clash at the Etihad Arena in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates, exclusively live on DAZN.
Cameron (16-0, 8 KOs) captured the famous green and gold WBC 140lbs world title by widely outpointing Brazil’s Adriana dos Santos Araujo behind closed doors in October 2020 before adding the IBF and Ring Magazine belts to get collection by decisioning Indiana’s Mary McGee in an all-action main event at London’s O2 Arena last October.
‘Il Capo’, trained by Jamie Moore and Nigel Travis, kept hold of her titles with another unanimous decision points win over former Katie Taylor opponent Victoria Noelia Bustos in May.
McCaskill (12-2, 5 KOs) drops down in weight to enhance her pound-for-pound credentials, having captured the WBA Super, WBC, IBO, IBF and WBO world titles up at 147lb against long-time ruler Cecilia Braekhus back in August 2020 before making three successful defences Stateside, including a rematch against Colombian-born Norweigian Braekhus.
Eddie Hearn, the Matchroom head honcho who recently did a deal with the kingdom to host boxing there, is excited to see his charge Cameron finally get her opportunity at the big time, having waited for her chance.
In a press release he said:
“Chantelle hasn’t put a foot wrong so far in her career but she knows she faces her toughest test to date against Chicago’s brilliant undisputed welterweight ruler Jessica McCaskill who returns to 140lbs for another shot at greatness.”
The first of the ‘Champion Series’ cards is topped by the WBA light-heavyweight champion Dmitry Bivol as he puts his belt on the line against his Mexican mandatory challenger Gilberto Ramirez and Joe Cordina will feature on the undercard as the Welshman makes the first defence of his IBF super-featherweight championship against Shavkat Rakhimov.
