LONDON – Katie Taylor successfully won the undisputed super lightweight women’s boxing world title last weekend. This success has made many other female boxers interested in testing the abilities of the boxer who also has the status of undisputed lightweight champion.
One of the female boxers who is excited to be in the same ring as Katie Taylor is Caroline Dubois. The rising young star is ready to fight for her right to fight Taylor.
Currently, Dubois is the top contender in the IBF and WBC lightweight divisions. Not long after Taylor’s victory over Cameron, Dubois also issued a challenge via his personal social media account. “I want that fight! Let me face it,” wrote Dubois, quoted on Tuesday (28/11/2023).
During 2023, Taylor has stepped into the ring twice, and all of his fights were just to face Cameron at super lightweight. Automatically, throughout this year, there will be no duels for the lightweight championship. Dubois himself has been waiting for the opportunity for a title fight.
Meanwhile, the WBC is preparing to give Taylor time to choose which division he will compete in next. After that, the new WBC will give a mandate to a challenger.
“We don’t have any problems at the moment. We won’t press. Let them rest well and we’ll see. We will communicate to see what their goals are in the future,” explained WBC president, Mauricio Sulaiman, as quoted by Sky Sports. .
Taylor himself is open to doing a fight trilogy with Cameron. However, if their trilogy does happen, it will be at super lightweight or lightweight.
“Let her enjoy the moment. Why rush anything. She is a two-division champion right now. She and Chantelle Cameron gave the world an incredible fight. They will probably do it again. If I were a promoter, I would do it in the lightweight division for both divisions,” explained Sulaiman.
“Let them enjoy this moment and we’ll see,” he added.
