Catch all the video highlights below.
Round 1: Taylor looking to establish her jab early and doing a good job fighting at some distance, circling around, jabbing, throwing the right behind it, and Cameron isn’t rattling at all, staying in the center of the ring, moving forward. They come in close and Taylor throws more, probably nothing really landed. They’ve also clashed heads twice at least already. Little left hook from Cameron. Right hand pushes Taylor back just a bit. Now Cameron on the back foot. Taylor goes down! She was off balance and it’s ruled a slip/trip but that really might have been a knockdown. Cameron jabbing now to close out the round. Taylor 10-9.
Round 2: Cameron just relentless on the front foot to start this round again. She’s using her hard jab, fighting her way where she wants to be. Taylor throwing as they clinch up a bit. Jabbing again from Cameron. Taylor with a little check hook, doing some good work on the back foot. Heads again come together. It’s just how they fight, nobody’s doing it on purpose or maliciously. Taylor with a good right hand, Cameron tries to make it physical in the clinch. Good shot from Taylor gets in and again Cameron wants to rough her up in close. Right hand and left hook from Taylor! Y’all, we got a fight. Again. These two are excellent opponents. Taylor 10-9, 20-18.
Round 3: Good flurry from Taylor about 40 seconds in after another sharp start. The crowd just wild every time Katie lands, and to be fair here, she’s landing clean frequently. Cameron is fighting well, don’t get me wrong, but Taylor has come with the right plan for the most part. Heads clash again just a bit. Cameron with a right hand, another gets close. She’s bringing hard pressure and lands a nice body shot. Katie with a sharp, short, straight right in the clinch as Cameron holds her left arm; Katie refusing to be bullied in close, or at least trying to make Cameron re-think it. Cameron with good work again and another clash of heads fully busts Cameron’s forehead open. Taylor 10-9, 30-27.
Round 4: Right hand again from Katie. Left hook. Referee wants the doctor to look at Cameron’s cut; her corner did a good job on it, but it’s opened up again. Doctor lets it go for now. If we get through four, it goes to the cards. Cameron backs Taylor to the corner, Katie countering but it’s exactly where Taylor does not want to be. Heads again clash or got real close to it. Taylor out of the corner and trying to jab some more, establish where she wants to be. Left-right and a jab from Taylor. GOOD body shot from Cameron. Another little left in from Taylor. Taylor flurrying again after Cameron lands some solid shots. Taylor may have sealed the round with two more late shots. Taylor 10-9, 40-36.
Round 5: Cameron on the front foot but measured to start this round. Left and a good right hand from Cameron, Taylor landed a shot there, too. Katie with a right hand, she has really just been so much sharper tonight. Cameron again trying to bully Taylor, but Katie is getting off the ropes so quickly this time. Not to say Chantelle doesn’t land a shot or two, but Katie is not getting stuck there this fight. Cameron with some good jabs and a right hand that might have glanced late. Think Taylor is just fighting excellently, and it’s not that Cameron is “off” or anything. Taylor 10-9, 50-45.
Round 6: Taylor is just totally switched on in this fight, and having another good opening half of this round. Andy Lee believes the style “favors Cameron” but I’m just not seeing it, Katie is quite often winning the fight Cameron would, in theory, prefer. But there’s a really nice left hook from Cameron. Taylor has to hang on a bit there, not dramatically but you can see she felt that. 1-2 from Cameron. Think she might have gotten this round, and she needed it. This could EASILY be closer, maybe even even. Many of these rounds close. Cameron 10-9, Taylor 59-55.
Round 7: Gotta apologize a bit to Andy Lee, who as usual is smarter than me. I think Cameron is getting some better work done and Taylor is fighting TOO MUCH of Cameron’s fight now. Both landing good shots. Really good shots on occasion. This is a terrific round in a terrific fight. This is better than the fight in May. Taylor 10-9, 69-64.
Round 8: Cameron with some REALLY good body shots and HARD work on the inside, Taylor can only hold on and wince. The referee really should do more about Cameron’s rabbit punches, even if they’re not super aggressive it’s illegal and dangerous. Taylor trying to stand her ground. It’s insane that this fight is getting better by the round right now. Sharp shots from Katie! HARD right from Katie late but that’s a Cameron round. Cameron 10-9, Taylor 78-74.
Round 9: Taylor trying to find distance and keep it. Cameron refusing to let that be easy. But Taylor doing some good work here in the first half of the round. Cameron trying to rough it up again, Taylor not letting her, and the ref is stepping in quicker with Taylor more aggressively clinching up. It’s a veteran tactic, and it’s working. Cameron with a hard little uppercut inside in a flurry. Taylor lands a right when they separate again, but Cameron still bullying away when she can. She’s tiring, but so is Taylor. Right hand Cameron, Taylor with two back, Cameron with another! This is, simply put, a Great Fight. Taylor 10-9, 88-83.
Round 10: The final round! Barry Jones on DAZN has it 87-84 Taylor, too, for what it’s worth. General belief is Cameron needs something big. Taylor is looking sharp, putting it on for this final round. Taylor with good work, Cameron gets some in close, Taylor fires back! Taylor throwing with both hands! What a fighter, what a fight. What a fighter in Cameron, too. If Katie Taylor needed a stamp on her greatness (she did not), this fight is it. Taylor again landing more when both land! Taylor 10-9, 98-92.
