Jacobs v Sulecki – RUNNING ORDER – What time is Katie Taylor fighting?

Tonight Katie Taylor [8(4)-0] looks to become just the third Irish fighter to become a unified world champion.

The WBA lightweight titlist takes on Argentina’s IBF champion Victoria Noelia Bustos in a big unification at the Barclays Center in New York.

The fight will be shown live on this side of the Atlantic on Sky Sports Main Event (401) and Sky Sports Action (407) – as well as on Sky Sports Mix (121) which is part of the basic Entertainment package for Sky customers.

Taylor’s is the opening TV bout on Sky – but will not be shown on HBO stateside – and is expected in the ring at around 2:00am (Irish time)

Also on the Jacobs-Sulecki undercard alongside Taylor in an untelevised contest will be Monaghan light welter Larry Fryers [6(2)-0].
