The inaugural Ring-Magazine World Title has been thrown in the pot, and the semi-final match-up to take place this week will yield a winner that oversees the division. WBC Junior-Welterweight titlist, and #8 Ring-Magazine P4P ranked fighter 🇬🇧Chantelle Cameron (14-0-0, 8KO) will risk her unbeaten record against current IBF Junior-Welterweight belt holder 🇺🇸Mary “Merciless” McGee (27-3-0, 18KO) for a main event that will take place at the O2 Arena in London, England to determine who will be in the WBSS final round.
Chantelle Cameron has been impressing pundits with skill, and her work ethic, putting her in the position as one of the sports standout fighters on the women’s side of the ledger. Winning the vacant world title back in October 2020, against 🇧🇷Adriana dos Santos Araujo, she made the first defense of her 140 lb. WBC strap in the first round of the tournament against 🇵🇷Melissa Hernandez, whom Chantelle stopped by 5th round TKO. It appears that the path is set for Chantelle to take towards standing atop the division by way of the division bracket, but he has a hungry fighter in front of her.
The American Mary McGee took on a more traditional route. The 35 year old’s first attempt at a title was against 🇺🇸Holly Holm in 2013 (yes, for those who didn’t know or forgot, she was a Champion in boxing prior to her UFC career), where McGee lost by wide unanimous decision. Her second opportunity didn’t go well for her either in her next bout, losing wide on the cards once again.
The third time was the charm for Mary in December of 2019, where she picked up the vacant IBF title against 🇦🇷Ana Laura Esteche by way of 10th round technical knockout. Her first title defense, like Cameron, came in the first round of the tournament, as she cleared out 🇦🇺Deanha Hobbs by 9th round stoppage. A victory in this bout come Saturday would certain be a career defining achievement.
