Taylor claimed a comfortable win live on Sky Sports on Saturday night, defeating Miriam Gutierrez on points at Wembley Arena.

Victory meant the Irish scrapper kept hold of her four world lightweight titles.

Cameron, who has won all 13 of her professional bouts to date and who is a world champion a division higher, is desperate to get a chance to take on Taylor.

There have been suggestions from some that Taylor would not fancy that fight as it carries too much risk, but that is a claim she strongly denies.

"I think they've mentioned a few names and every female boxer in the whole world is calling me out right now," Taylor told Behind the Gloves.

"I'm ready and I'm ready to step in the ring with every single one of them.

"There's no shortage of big fights and I'm happy to fight whoever."

When it was put to Taylor that Cameron thinks she doesn't want to fight her, Taylor smiled and said: "Why does she think that?

"I actually heard similar things before we fought each other as amateurs and I beat her as an amateur as well.

"Chantelle is obviously a great fighter but I'm happy to fight anyone.

"I don't duck anyone and I think my career has shown that."

Taylor has won all 17 of her professional fights.

And promoter Eddie Hearn said: "She does want to push the boundaries.

"She won't duck one of them. I just think there is no fight she wouldn't take."
