Chantelle Cameron has taken to social media to urge Katie Taylor not to leave their rivalry 1-1.

The Englishwoman suffered her first professional loss on November 25 as Taylor won by unanimous decision, finding redemption six months after Cameron gave her her own first professional loss.

Now Cameron is calling for the trilogy.

"Had my break from boxing to clear my head and recover from my first loss," she said over X.

"We both took each others 0, let's get the trilogy on next. I agreed the first fight in less than 48 hours no excuses If you are anything like me you will not want to leave this at 1-1."

Taylor has been adamant that her next fight be at Croke Park, whether she takes on Cameron or a possible rematch with Amanda Serrano, whom she defeated at Madison Square Garden last year.

Promoter Eddie Hearn has said the same regarding the venue:

"She deserves everything. Croke Park has to happen! It has to happen. Next spring/summer we will create an event you will never forget."

"We could make a financial case on the tourism and why an event like this would be a huge success for this country. But if they can't understand the compassionate side of giving this event and night to their greatest-ever athlete then I really don't know what we are doing. But also we are not even asking for favours. All we are asking for is for the cost to be in line with the biggest stadia in the world where we hold boxing."

If cost doesn't prove prohibitive, it remains to be seen if Cameron will agree to another fight without home advantage. After the fight, she reposted a Jake Paul X (tweet) calling for the situation to be reversed should Taylor and Cameron meet again.

After an extension was granted by the WBO, Taylor has until Dec. 20 to decide whether to vacate her lightweight or super lightweight (junior welterweight in the American system) titles per WBO guidelines, which do not allow fighters to simultaneously hold titles in two weight divisions.
