The newest to the Lympo Athletes roster is a British professional boxer, Chantelle Cameron. Cameron, nicknamed “Il Capo” or “The Boss”, has captured the public's attention with her unwavering determination in the ring, natural athleticism and fierce competitive spirit. She currently holds 5 boxing champion titles, is a world champion in two weight classes, and most recently became the Undisputed World Light-Welterweight Champion, making her the United Kingdom’s first Undisputed female boxing World Champion.
Born in Northampton, England, Cameron started her combat sports at the age of 10 with kickboxing and later moved on to Muay Thai at 16. She quickly made a name for herself, winning amateur titles in the IKF and WAKO before switching to boxing at 18.
Before starting her professional career, Chantelle Cameron earned numerous amateur boxing accolades. She won two English women's national championships — the ABA Championships in 2010 and the ABAE Championships in 2015. Cameron also participated in EU Championships, winning silver in 2010 and bronze in 2011.
Cameron turned professional in 2017 and quickly established herself as a rising star in the sport. She made her professional debut in May 2017 and won a six-round points decision. The same year, she earned herself an IBO Inter-Continental female super-featherweight title, which she held until 2019.
Chantelle Cameron moved up the weight class only a month later, fighting for her first world title — the IBO female lightweight title, which she won. Afterwards, she moved up to another weight class, which she fights for to this day.
One of Cameron's most significant achievements came in 2020 when she won the vacant WBC world female light-welterweight title. Cameron's victory was an important milestone for women's boxing in the UK, as she became only the fourth British woman to win a world title. The win also earned her recognition as one of the best female boxers in the world.
In 2021, Chantelle Cameron accomplished IBF female light-welterweight and the inaugural Ring titles in a win against previous champion Mary McGee. And in 2022, Cameron defeated Jessica McCaskill, making her the undisputed world light-welterweight champion and the United Kingdom’s first undisputed female boxing world champion.
During her career, Chantelle Cameron has fought and defeated some of the best boxers in her division, including Anisha Basheel, Jessica Gonzalez, and former world champion Melissa Hernandez. Cameron's achievements in the sport have not gone unnoticed, and she has been praised for her skill, dedication, and determination. In 2021, she was named the British Boxing Board of Control's Female Boxer of the Year, further cementing her status as one of the top boxers in the UK.
