Taylor and Cameron made weight ahead of their bout

Both Katie Taylor and Chantelle Cameron have completed their pre-match weigh-ins ahead of their super lightweight world title fight this weekend.

Taylor weighed in at 139.7 lbs, indicating a gain of five pounds since her fight with Amanda Serrano in 2022. Cameron also weighed in at the same weight as her Irish counterpart on Friday.

Taylor, the undisputed lightweight world champion, has moved up a weight category to face her opponent from Northampton.

During the weigh-in, the two female fighters squared off without exchanging words, concluding the weigh-in process.

This will be Taylor's first professional fight in Ireland, and the 3Arena bout has been sold-out with excitement building throughout the week.

The Bray native is determined to maintain her undefeated record. Taylor's impressive fight record of 17-0 (8 KOs) has been achieved outside of Ireland. This week, Taylor expressed gratitude to the Irish for their support in her debut home professional fight.

"It's amazing to think I'm only a few days away from making my homecoming fight," Taylor said at a press conference in Dundrum Shopping Centre on Thursday. "I'm just so excited about it. It's brilliant to see so many people there on Wednesday as well, so many young kids there, they must've got the time off school - I'm not sure how they all ended up there.

"Just amazing to see so many young girls, especially. It's very cool to be able to have an impact on some of those younger kids."

The main event is expected to start at 10:30 pm, provided the undercards don't go on longer than expected. The Taylor vs. Cameron fight will be available on DAZN in Ireland and in more than 200 countries.
