Katie Taylor cannot be entitled as an undefeated fighter anymore, as she recently faced her first ever loss against the highly talented Chantelle Cameron. The historic match last weekend was nothing less than super-entertaining.
Both fighters gave their all, but Cameron had a better grip since round one and was successful in putting Katie Taylor under pressure. The bitter taste of defeat will haunt Katie Taylor until she gets an opportunity to prove herself again.
Nothing except the rematch matters to her, she is focused, and Chantelle Cameron has also agreed to give her the rematch. Recently Katie Taylor revealed that the rematch is being aimed for November this year.

It will happen one day in the future, but now my sights are set on securing a rematch with Chantelle". "I take it fight by fight and year by year, but right now I'm not going to end my career like that. I'm excited to step back in there and perform.
This is my passion and I'm so grateful to be doing it every day. She further said: "I haven't looked back on the fight yet. I think the right person won. I have to take the loss and move on from it. I'm just excited to get back to America to start training again for the rematch.
