Cameron takes on Esther Sanchez in title eliminator

Chantelle Cameron in her quest for a title shot will move up to super-lightweight to meet Anahi Esther Sanchez in a WBC final eliminator – with the winner getting a title shot at Jessica McCaskill.

The undefeated ‘Il Capo’ (11-0, 7 KOs) collides with Argentina’s three-weight world champion Sanchez (19-4, 11 KOs) on the #MTKFightNight at York Hall on November 9th – live on ESPN+ in association with Top Rank and on iFL TV worldwide.

Cameron in her last contest defeated handily Anisha Basheel in a ten-round unanimous decision back in July.

Cameron, who remains the reigning WBC Silver champion at lightweight, said: “Sanchez is a good opponent who has been around. She’s had a lot of world title fights and had good fights with Katie Taylor and McCaskill.

“She has a good boxing brain and knows what she’s doing in there but I’m confident that I’ll simply have too much for her on the night.

“She carries power too but as I showed against Basheel, I’ve got power AND I can box. I’m not concerned by her power because I won’t be taking clean shots. We’ll see if she can take mine in return.

“I’ve boxed at super-lightweight before and I felt really strong and powerful. I still have the option to do lightweight but at super-lightweight, I have that bit of extra power to use.”

On another packed bill at the iconic London venue, joining Cameron vs. Sanchez is a world-level showdown between undefeated WBO European welterweight king Michael McKinson against Luis Alberto Veron, and world title challenger Liam Walsh.

Also on the card as well is undefeated Daniel Egbunike, faces Billy Allington for the vacant Southern Area super-lightweight title, plus there is another battle of two unbeaten stars as Josh Adewale takes on Michael Elliott. Rising talents Alex Bellingham, and Jack Martin are in action too.
