Chantelle Cameron on Eddie Hearn

In an interview with BBC Look East, Chantelle Cameron said the following about Eddie Hearn: "They always knew I was a threat against Katie Taylor, and that's what happened in the first fight when you see Eddie nearly crying when I actually beat her.

In the second fight, in the celebrations, he forgot I was his fighter as well," Cameron said as quoted by boxingscene.com. "He was jumping up and down, happy. Obviously, they've had a great story together and a great journey, but they represent me as well.

I want the trilogy, but it's hard to work with someone who does that to you. I respect him as a promoter; I became undisputed [champion] under him, but that [Hearn celebrating Taylor's win] was a little bit cruel and embarrassing for me as well".

Eddie Hearn on Chantelle Cameron's comments

In an interview with IFL TV, Eddie Hearn responded to Chantelle Cameron's statements: "I wasn't happy with the comments. I like Chantelle. She never seems to be happy with the job we've done," Hearn said, as quoted by boxingscene.com.

"I got you two life and career and legacy-defining fights with Katie Taylor back-to-back and made millions of pounds. I don't know what else we can do. There's no hard feelings between myself and Chantelle. I watched the interview, and I was just like, 'Wow,' but it's boxing. We don't all have to go out and have mince pies together, but we want to do good business together."
