Katie Taylor knows she has all the tools to beat Chantelle Cameron.
Back in May, Taylor suffered a shocking defeat as she was a massive betting favorite over Cameron. Many expected Taylor to cruise to a win even though she was moving up in weight to fight the undisputed champ.
However, Taylor ended up losing by a decision and the two will now run it back on Nov. 25 and the Irishman believes she learned a lot from the first fight and has confidence going into the rematch.
“I think so. I think failure causes you to analyze things a little bit more and that’s been the case for this fight,” Taylor told BoxingScene.com. I think that’s where all the growth happens. Unfortunately, it has to be that way. When you suffer a loss, you’re forced to look at every single detail. In that aspect it’s always a good thing.
“I definitely feel like I’m a better boxer now than obviously the fight before and hopefully I can show what I can do on the actual night,” Taylor continued.
Even though Katie Taylor has a lot of confidence, she is the betting underdog as she’s +160 while Chantelle Cameron is a -190 favorite.
