Katie Taylor to fight in Limerick in Ocotber

The first bout in Limerick by Katie Taylor historic gold medal winner at the London 2012 Olympics will take place in the UL Arena on Sunday October 12th 2014.


The World number one will face experienced French lightweight Oshin Derieuw on the Night for the eagerly anticipated first appearance of Katie in the ring in Limerick.


The Taylor Derieuw bout headlines a packed card of top class boxing with several full internationals taking part on a seven bout card.
