Today’s Katie Taylor vs Chantelle Cameron got a celebrity boost today when UFC superstar Conor McGregor made a surprise appearance at the 3Arena in Dublin just hours before the big bout. Taylor will move up in weight to challenge WBA, WBC, IBF, WBO, IBO, and The Ring female light-welterweight chap Chantelle Cameron for the belt collection. Take a look at Mac’s arrival below:

Katie Taylor fans in Ireland owe Conor McGregor for her return

Katie Taylor has brought home Olympic boxing gold to Ireland along with one of the most impressive belt and trophy collections in boxing history. Taylor is a two-weight world champion and the current undisputed lightweight champion, she’s had the WBA title since 2017; the IBF title since 2018; and the WBC, WBO, and The Ring magazine titles since 2019, as well as having briefly held the WBO junior-welterweight title in 2019.

After beating Delfine Persoon in 2019, she became one of only eight boxers in history (women and men) to all the big four boxing belts (WBA, WBC, IBF, and WBO) at the same time. But she’s never fought professionally in her home country…until now.

“It wasn’t happening otherwise. There were roadblocks and all the rest of it,” Conor told Ariel Helwani (see video below). “I reach out and said I’m in on this. Let me in on this. Bring our champion home. Katie is Olympic champion. World champion. She’s never fought in Ireland professionally. Get our champion home. “I was happy to jump at it. So we jumped at it and that’s it.”
