Chantelle Cameron Takes Shots At Her Promoter Eddie Hearn, "He Was Jumping Up and Down Happy (After Katie Taylor's Win)"

Chantelle Cameron Expresses Frustration With Promoter Eddie Hearn, “He Was Jumping Up and Down Happy (After Katie Taylor’s Win)”

Chantelle Cameron pulled off the upset over the P4P #1 and female boxing’s biggest star, Katie Taylor in Taylor’s Ireland homecoming this May.

After the fight, Cameron revealed in an interview with NoSmokeSport that she felt her experience in Ireland for the fight was not a pleasant one.

“I’ve been hearing a few bits and bobs from my friends, sponsors, and families that things were happening over there and I don’t think they were very nice to some of the people that were supporting me.”

“My mum definitely didn’t want to be coming back to Dublin. She actually told me yesterday, she’s not going to come back to Dublin to support me if I go back there.”

Cameron did return to Ireland though and was beaten by a near-perfect Taylor who righted the wrongs of the first fight and got the game plan spot on.

Chantelle Cameron Upset At Eddie Hearn Over Preference

Now Cameron has taken shots at her promoter Eddie Hearn over alleged favouritism in both Taylor fights.

She told BBC Look East: “They always knew I was a threat against Katie Taylor and that’s what happened in the first fight when you see Eddie [Hearn, the Matchroom promoter] nearly crying when I actually beat her.”

“In the second fight, in the celebrations, he forgot I was his fighter as well. He was jumping up and down, happy… obviously they’ve had a great story together, and a great journey, but they represent me as well.”

“I want the trilogy, but it’s hard to work with someone that does that to you. I respect him as a promoter, I became undisputed [champion] under him, but that [Hearn celebrating Taylor’s win] was a little bit cruel and embarrassing for me as well.”

Cameron got the first fight with Taylor after Amanda Serrano withdrew due to injury – she did so over another Undisputed champion in the Matchroom stable, Alycia Baumgardner – although Taylor’s preference was always Cameron, who she beat in the unpaid ranks.

Hearn and Taylor have a long-time close working relationship spanning seven years but Hearn has claimed he would, and believes he did, remain neutral throughout the build-ups as he represents both fighters.

The promoter expressed hope of staging another fight with Cameron for Taylor next summer at Croke Park immediately after Taylor’s win.
