Claressa Shields
(Three-weight world champion)

Katie Taylor cannot outfight Chantelle Cameron... she is too big and too powerful for her. Katie is going to have to be very strategic to not take those punches, not get hit by the body shots and not show that she has been hurt by shots.

If Chantelle comes out and fights with the same game-plan then she can, of course, win again. But if Katie can up her game, stand and trade a little more, and not be so on the defensive, then she does have a chance.

Mikaela Mayer
(Former super-featherweight world champion)

I don't think Katie Taylor will adjust enough to be able to give herself the opportunity to win this fight. For me Chantelle Cameron is just too strong and aggressive for Katie, and the result will be a replica of the first fight.

David Coldwell
(Boxing trainer)

Katie Taylor has been absolutely fantastic for the sport, a trailblazer for women's boxing, but I just can't see her beating Chantelle Cameron. Chantelle is so good, she is big and just outstanding. I can't see revenge at all - I just can't.

Terri Harper
(Two-weight world champion)

Chantelle Cameron will go into this fight with even more confidence than the first given what happened earlier in the year, and I really can't see what Katie Taylor is going to be able to do to stop Chantelle.

Matthew Macklin
(Boxing pundit)

I thought that Katie Taylor looked old in her last fight. Now, maybe she was a little bit overcooked in training; her legs were certainly gone, and the big question for me is whether they were gone because of her preparation or whether they are now just sadly gone.

Katie has had such a long career, so many fights, so many training camps and nobody can overcome age and time in this sport - no matter how good they may have been in the past.

Savannah Marshall
(Two-weight world champion)

I was shocked at how the first fight panned out; the start of the fight was a flip-reverse of what I expected. I thought that Katie Taylor would start faster and Chantelle Cameron would come on strong late on, but the exact opposite actually happened. 

I think Katie is going to have to pull something really magic out of the bag to beat Chantelle.

Jamie Moore
(Boxing trainer)

I think Katie Taylor will come out and look better than she did in the first fight, but I also know that Chantelle Cameron will show an even better version of herself too because she now knows that she can beat Katie, and ahead of the first fight she didn't know that was 100 percent the case. 

Darren Barker
(Boxing pundit)

You hear the saying all time time; 'father time waits for nobody', and I believe that Katie Taylor's best days are behind her now. For me, Chantelle Cameron will upset the Irish fans once again and retain her titles.
