When explaining 🇮🇪 “Irish” Katie Taylor (17-0-0, 6KO) and her placement in boxing, a wall of excellence is evident, as praise has to be heaped upon her shoulders for her laundry list of accomplishments. Being a 5-time Amateur World Champ, and 2012 London Olympic Gold-Medal
Winner, the 34 year old continued her exploits at the professional level, and now sits atop her class as the Undisputed Lightweight Champion of the World, and has an arguable case for being the best all-around boxer on the women’s side of the sport.
She will look to make the 3rd defense of her Undisputed claim, and the 10th overall Lightweight title defense, and standing across from her on Saturday will be suitable competition. Britain’s talented former Amateur standout 🇬🇧Natasha Jonas (9-1-1, 7KO) will roll the dice, and has her intentions fixated on winning, not just showing up.
Her last bout was a doozy, as she went to war with skilled unbeaten WBC Super-Featherweight Champion 🇬🇧Terri Harper. They fought tooth and nail, and the fight was scored a draw, thus Harper retaining her WBC title, and Jonas ultimately falling short of coming home with a belt. She will get her second opportunity at the world title picture, this time moving up a weight class, and she will once again be pit against elite opposition in order to get there.
The fight will go down at the Manchester Arena, in England. DAZN will be the platform to view this contest. With all five RING / WBA / WBC / WBO / IBF Titles on the line, see who will emerge victorious.
