Katie Taylor Wants A Trilogy Fight At Croke Park
In the last seconds, Katie Taylor came dangerously close to falling, but she managed to stay upright at a critical juncture for the scorecards. Two judges gave it a tie; the other two gave Taylor scores of 98-92 and 96-94.
Michael Benson has also shared the image of the scorecard on his X handle, as he captions the post “Katie Taylor MD Chantelle Cameron II official judges’ scorecards…
“Whoever wrote me off obviously doesn’t know me very well,” she said.
“Let’s get the trilogy at Croke Park.”
Taylor, who contested as the underdog for the first time in her career, becomes one of just two fighters in the four-belt era to win uncontested belts in two separate weight classes, along with Claressa Shields and Terence Crawford.
Cameron lost the first fight in her 19-bout professional career, and she also lost the light-welterweight championships from the IBF, WBA, WBO, and WBC.
Taylor termed the fight her “real homecoming” and, when she demanded a decisive battle in the 80,000-seater Croke Park, the Gaelic Games stadium, which is also located in the Irish city, she infuriated the already jubilant audience.
