Taylor vs Cameron LIVE! Boxing updates and undercard results

Katie Taylor faces Chantelle Cameron in her long-awaited Ireland homecoming tonight. It seems utterly remarkable that the boxing pride of the Emerald Isle has never previously competed as a professional in her native country, but that finally changes in front of a raucous sold-out crowd at the 3Arena in Dublin tonight. While not quite Croke Park, there will still be a tremendous atmosphere in what Taylor believes will be the hardest bout of her illustrious career to date.

Rather than accept a low-level opponent or mandatory defence after the postponement of her much-hyped rematch with Amanda Serrano, the usually unassuming ‘Bray Bomber’ instead went on the offensive and pushed for a massive showdown with a fellow superstar in Nottingham’s Cameron. Victory for Taylor tonight would see her go down in history as a two-weight undisputed world champion.

On the undercard, Terri Harper’s super-welterweight title defence against Cecilia Braekhus was called off this morning, but there was another world title showdown as JJ Metcalf took Dennis Hogan’s IBO belt. There were wins for home favourites Thomas Carty, Caoimhin Agyarko and Paddy Donovan earlier in the night, but Gary Cully was stunned as he fell to a third-round stoppage defeat against Jose Felix Jr. Follow Katie Taylor vs Chantelle Cameron live below!
