Chantelle Cameron stops Melissa Hernandez in fifth round to defend WBC super-lightweight title

Chantelle Cameron overwhelmed Melissa Hernandez in a fifth-round stoppage victory to retain her WBC super-lightweight title in Las Vegas.

Britain’s undefeated champion was a class above her Puerto Rican opponent, who had toppled into the ropes in the fourth round, and a string of clean punches from Cameron prompted the referee to wave it off.

From the opening bell, Cameron had landed her right hand with regularity, and Hernandez staggered back to the ropes in the third round.

Cameron scored a knockdown as Hernandez wilted under an array of punches in the following round and the referee stepped in to stop the one-sided fight in the fifth.
