Chantelle Cameron vs Viviane Obenauf



Hello everyone. Three short weeks ago Chantelle Cameron claimed her first professional title as she won the IBO Intercontinental super-featherweight gong in only her fourth fight. Tonight she's back, and she's back at lightweight and is looking to add a World Title to her resume.

Hear what Chantelle told BTM after winning that title and about returning to the lightweight division below. Be sure to join us from 10pm to follow all the action as she faces Brazil's Vivane Obenauf for the vacant IBO lightweight title. Following that we'll also have updates of the European super-lightweight bout between Anthony Yigit and Joe Hughes for you.

Hello everybody. Who's ready for a bit of championship boxing then? Alistair Sargent here to be your eyes and ears as Chantelle Cameron and Viviane Obenauf clash for the IBO lightweight world title and Anthony Yigit defends his European super-lightweight belt against Joe Hughes in Leicester

Only 21 days ago I was in Edinburgh for the Josh Taylor - Miguel Vazquez card when I was blown away by the performance of a lady contesting only her fourth professional fight. Chantelle Cameron blew away the reputedly very tough Edith Ramos in little over 5 minutes that night, and later, in the press room, her manager Barry McGuigan was singing her praises to anyone who would listen.

When McGuigan announced to the gathered press that Chantelle would beat everyone in the super-featherweight & lightweight divisions, Katie Taylor included, the assorted hacks' jaws dropped in shock & there was almost a laugh of derision But they had been slouchy & presumably not seen Cameron in action. I joined McGuigan in raving about the Northampton lass and I believe him, she will beat Taylor

Tonight she will take an enormous step towards making that fight with Katie Taylor a reality when she beats Viviane Obenauf to join Taylor as a lightweight world champion. And you can take that to the bank.

Obenauf is no slouch. She has three defeats in her career, but all of them are to undefeated and well fancied fighters. Indeed, one Katie Taylor claimed a routine six-round points victory over Obenauf almost exactly 12 months ago. So can Chantelle make a statement by bettering Taylor's performance? If she does she'll go home a world champion tonight. Action just moments away.

Obenauf first to make her way to the ring. Followed by Cameron who is greeted by the sparse crowd in Leicester, not far from her home-town of Northampton.

Really disappointing crowd tonight. Josh Taylor says he fancies the winner of Yigit - Hughes. Only one man is selling tickets for that judging by the response from the people of Leicester to this one.

So here we go then. Cameron unbeaten in her 4 contests as a pro. Obenauf brings a 12 and 3 record
