The WBA lightweight champion will defend her belt for the first time next month, and the bout seems set to be something a bit different.
Now though the card, the first ever Sky Sports bill to be headlined by a woman, is set to take place midweek, with Hearn telling IFL TV that the York Hall on Wednesday December 13th being the new plan.
A public workout will take place on Monday 11th, with the press conference and weigh-in both set for Tuesday 12th.
An official announcement from Matchroom Boxing is expected soon, which will officially confirm the date and venue – as well as the opponent.
American Jessica McCaskill [5(3)-1(0)] has been strongly tipped to be the opponent for the ten-round title clash, with ‘CasKILLA’ having been the only fighter namechecked by Team Taylor – as well as calling out the Bray boxer numerous times.
The move sees the card now take place before the majority of the Tony Bellew v David Haye fight week events – rather than right in the middle. The outspoken English heavyweight pair rematch on Sunday December 17th at the O2 in London.
The fight will come just six and a half weeks after Taylor [7(4)-0] won the belt, with the 31 year old having dropped and outpointed Anahi Sanchez on the Joshua-Takam undercard at the Principality Stadium in Cardiff.
