It’s Official Katie Taylor will fight on Lee Saunders undercard

Olympic Champion Katie Taylor will compete on the undercard of Andy Lee’s WBO World title defence in Thomond Park on September 19.

The Irish Icon will get the chance to show her vaunted talent in front of a potential 33,000 crowd and live on Boxnation on the much anticipated show.

The world renowned Bray BC fighter will fight over four two minute rounds against an opponent yet to be confirmed.

The greatest female fighter on the planet will reveal more about the clash and her participation in the biggest boxing event to come to Ireland since Steve Collins fought Chris Eubank at a press conference next Tuesday.

The five time World champion’s inclusion has been made more significant by the fact Frank Warren, who co promotes with Adam Booth,has stated he isn’t a female fight fan and Billy Joe Saunders’ comments on women, which he stresses were made in jest.

However, while that is a ticket selling subplot most Irish fight fans will simply be delighted with the chance to see Taylor compete on such a massive card.
