Chantelle Cameron is the #1 women’s super light weight boxer, the unified lightweight champion, and the light welterweight champion. She’s intent on becoming a three division champion by taking on Mary McGee, the IBF champion at super lightweight. We’re here to make an accurate Chantelle Cameron vs Mary McGee betting pick.
We’re looking closely at the betting odds to choose the most lucrative bets. You’ll see a breakdown of the fight to determine which fighters money line or which fight prop works best for you.
Odds and Props for Chantelle Cameron vs Mary McGee
|Fighter||Money lines and payout per dollar||Over/Under 8 1/2|
|Chantelle Cameron||-1800, $0.06||O -286, $0.35|
|Mary McGee||+900, $9.00||U +205, $2.05|
Cameron is the challenger and a serious favorite. Despite McGee’s champion status, we’re seeing some sportsbooks give Cameron a -3000 or better rating.
The Over/Under prop bets meet their closest point at the 8 ½ Round mark of this ten round fight. It’s notable that Mary McGee’s last two knockouts were 9th and 10th round TKOs. As a McGee fan, betting the under means ignoring her propensity toward heating up as the fight comes to a close.
Other Prop Bets for Chantelle Cameron vs Mary McGee
|Fight Goes to Decision||-250|
|Fight Doesn’t Go to Decision||+175|
|McGee via TKO||+1600|
|Cameron via Decision||-225|
Three of Cameron’s last six fights have gone to decision, and only two of McGee’s last six have gone the distance. McGee has three losses, each via decision.
To me, the obvious outcomes are that McGee will knock Cameron out or Cameron will win a long fight. The two prop bets available are far better than the money lines either fighter has produced.

Cameron is taller but gives up three inches of reach. McGee has double the fight experience and nearly double the knockouts.
McGee hasn’t fought since early 2020 when she knocked out Deanha Hobbs in the ninth round.
Cameron has stayed active, fighting earlier this year and once last year after a four fight sprint in 2019.
Fight Record for Chantelle Cameron
Cameron has taken on higher levels of skill in recent years. In her last bout she’s outboxed now 23-8 Melissa Hernandez, a boxer with seven TKO’s . Let’s look at her toughest opponent’s and their total TKOs. The table below skips over most fighters with low knockout rates or losing records.
|Adriana Dos Santos Araujo||1|
|Anahi Ester Sanchez||12|
On paper, Cameron’s toughest test to date was Anahi Ester Sanchez, a boxer with few notable wins outside of Cecilia Sofia Mena. Cameron is mostly untested, and McGee will have more knockouts and more experience over quality opponetsn than anyone on Cameron’s record by a long shot.
Ratio of Winning to Losing Fighters
Cameron has been active as a pro since 2017. Fighting 14 times in four years is fast by any standard. Five of her fourteen opponent’s have had losing records. Compare that to McGee, who fought three debuting fighters early in her career, skipping an amatuer career and going pro in in 2005 when she was just seventeen. Shes fought 15 fighters with losing records, but has double the fight experience.
Fight Record for Mary McGee
Mary McGee has lost to three fighters. Holly Holm, Erica Anabella Farias and Brooke Dierdorff. Farias was the only undefeated fighter. Each fighter won via decision.
The Holly Holm Fight
McGee came up in weight to fight Holm. She complained that Holly was significantly stronger. Holly moved side to side and stayed out of McGee’s exchanges. She was frustrated by the footwork and fienting.
The Anabella Fight
McGee again struggled with lateral movement. Farias moved side to sde and repeatedly beet McGee down the center line.
Both of these fights were eight years ago. Cameron started her pro career only four years ago. I feel oddsmakers are not taking into consideration the changes made by the McGee camp.
Style comparison for Mcgee vs Cameron
Cameron is a solid pressure fighter, walking opponents down early in the fight. She controls the centerline well and stays right on the edge of the pocket. She’s open to the jab from an opponent with reach, but she’s happy to trade shots.
Cameron will often switch stances to recover and circle the ring.
McGee will meet Cameron center ring. They’ll either end up clench range, or one of them will fade to the ropes. McGee is patient, but Cameron is clearly faster.
McGee underutilizes the jab, and her wide punching will leave room for Cameron’s signature upercut.
Other Factors in the McGee vs Cameron Title Fight
Compubox stats for both fighters are limited in availability. Cameron has been working with Catterall boxing full time.
McGee has a son in school, a new fight camp at Hammond Boxing. She has a job outside of boxing and has an injured knee thats been receiving treatments as recently as mid September.
