Katie Taylor v Jessica McCaskill – RUNNING ORDER


Katie Taylor [7(4)-0] makes history once again tonight.

Bray’s WBA lightweight champion defends her belt for the first time against Jessica McCaskill [5(3)-1(0)] at the famous York Hall in London, becoming the first ever woman to top a Sky Sports boxing card.

Taylor tops a packed bill which was recently bolstered by a number of late additions following the cancellation of the Tony Bellew v David Haye 2 card set for this coming Sunday.

The Wicklow woman is tentatively scheduled to make her ringwalk at 10:30pm, however this may be a bit later.

The fight will be shown live on Sky Sports Main Event (channel 401) and on Sky Sports Mix, which is included in a standard Sky Entertainment package (channel 121 Ireland, channel 407 UK).
