BRITAIN has a new boxing world champion in Northampton super-lightweight queen Chantelle Cameron.

The 29-year-old snatched up the vacant WBC crown on Sunday night inside Stadium MK, with a masterful mauling of her rock-hard Brazilian opponent known as ‘The Pitbull’.

Cameron overcame ‘The Pitbull’ despite her Brazilian opponent failing to make weight

Adriana Araujo was soundly beaten by the former Team GB ace, who has been haunted by the failure to make the 2016 Olympics in Rio.

But she proudly lifted the iconic green and gold belt aloft to banish those demons and announce her name on the world stage.

Araujo, 38, was a whopping 5lbs over the 10st limit at Saturday’s weigh-in and Cameron punished her ruthlessly for the unprofessionalism.

Cameron said: “I wanted this belt.

“She wasn’t professional enough to make weight. I took it in my stride.

“I could feel the weight difference, I felt it in her punches.

“I want all the belts.”

The convinced judges all scored the pasting a shutout of 100-90.

Cameron could now set up a huge clash with Irish great Katie Taylor

Cameron had vowed to box like a student and fight like a thug and she fulfilled her promise with the perfect blend of boxing and banging.

The early rounds were a boxing clinic and, in the sixth, she even bulldozed her rival into the floor with a rugby tackle.

The final five rounds were little more than a demonstration of Cameron’s brilliant skills and Araujo’s concrete skull so it was pleasing when the final bell ended the beatdown.

The Jamie Moore trained attention dodger will now aim to become the undisputed ruler of the class and hopefully meet Irish icon Katie Taylor soon.
