That she is being talked about in the same breath as
World Championship silver medallist Amanda Coulson
and four-times ABA Champion Natasha Jonas is all the more remarkable when you hear Cameron only made a real commitment to the sport by quitting kickboxing in July 2010.
"She hasn't been on the scene long but she's coming back with the right results and she's dealt with switching from kickboxing without any problems.
"When you're her age, you're always that much more intense about everything, including training.
"As long as she stays as determined as she is, and keeps focused, she can achieve just as much as I have and maybe even more.
"To compete at the Olympics is all I've ever wanted to do, and I'm sure she's thinking the same thing."
And whilst the experience of full-time training, top class coaching and working with illustrious squad mates is clearly something Cameron is enjoying, she does not regard representing Great Britain at the Olympics as out of reach.
"It's amazing on the podium squad," said Cameron. "Being a full-time athlete is what I always wanted to do - a dream come true.
"For every athlete, the Olympics is the target. All the training would be worth it, although it wouldn't feel real if I did qualify.
"I'm just thinking about beating Katie Taylor at the moment. If I can beat her, I'll know I've got a chance for the gold - I don't want silver or bronze."
Chantelle Cameron is one of BBC Radio Northampton's three featured athletes as part of 'Olympic Dreams' in the build-up to London 2012.
