WORLD and European champ Katie Taylor will be back between the ropes tonight (August 11th)
versus experienced Swedish lightweight Helena Falk at the Royal Hotel in Bray.
The “Royal “Rumble” with the European bronze medalist will be the Bray woman’s first competitive outing since she retained her European Union title in Poland last June.
The Taylor/Falk duel will headline a 12-contest card and is part of Taylor’s build up
toward the 2011 European Championships in Holland.
The two-time AIBA World female boxer of the year will be aiming for an unprecedented fifth European
title in-a-row in in Rotterdam in October.
Following the European Championships, Taylor’s focus will then switch toward the 2012 AIBA Women’s
World Championships in Chongqing, China next May.
The 2012 World Championships – where Taylor will be aiming for four-in-a-row – will act as the only qualifier for the female boxers for the London Olympics.
