Cameron admitted "I wasn't expecting her to be that tough."

As well as taking home two world titles, Cameron also claimed the prestigious Ring Magazine belt that was up for grabs in this fight.

The Northampton fighter will now have the chance of becoming the undisputed champion of the world.

Her win over McGee means she moves into the final of 'The Road To Unification' tournament, and will take on the winner of the November fight between American pair Kali Reis and Jessica Camara, who between them hold the WBA, WBO and IBO world belts.
