Katie Taylor suffered a narrow defeat in her homecoming fight after moving up a weight class to face England's Chantelle Cameron in a bid to become the undisputed light-welterweight champion (Taylor is still the undisputed lightweight champion). Cameron won by majority decision with the judges giving 95-95, 96-94, and 96-94 in favor of the English fighter. Eddie Hearn, who manages both boxers, has announced he is working on a rematch, again in Dublin.
