WATCH: Katie Taylor v Milena Koleva weigh-in and head-to-head

Katie Taylor [3(2)-0] was on the scales this afternoon in Manchester ahead of her fourth pro fight.

Just three weeks after her chief support slot on the Haye-Bellew PPV, the Wicklow woman boxes on the undercard of the Jorge Linares v Anthony Crolla WBA lightweight title rematch at the Manchester Arena tomorrow night.

Here she will take a big step up to face Bulgarian Milena Koleva [9(3)-7(1)-1] in what will be her first eight rounder.

The Bray boxer came in at a career-highest 134.6lbs (9 stone, 8 pounds, 8 ounces).

Koleva, who lost to Maiva Hamadouche in an IBF super featherweight title clash last time out, tipped the scales at the slightly higher weight of 132.1lbs (9 stone, 6 pounds, 2 ounces).

The pair then went eyeball to eyeball.
