Cameron successfully defends her title

  • +1

Chantelle Cameron (14-0 7 KOs) dazzled on her Las Vegas debut by destroying Melissa Hernandez in the first defense of her WBC World Super-Lightweight title.

Cameron said she wanted to shine in Sin City and the Briton did just that, coming out of the blocks with equal parts speed and spite, and her aggressive approach was first rewarded in the fourth round, when a barrage of punches nearly put Hernandez through the ropes, and then the referee stepped in to halt the contest in the fifth with the challenger under more fire.

Ramla Ali (3-0) enjoyed her Las Vegas debut with a shut-out six round win over Mikayla Nebel while Amari Jones (2-0 1 KO) kicked off the night with a first round KO win in his second pro outing.
