The Wicklow lightweight fights at the famous Madison Square Garden Arena where she will defend her WBA and IBF titles versus former amateur rival and reigning WBC super feather champion Eva Wahlström of Finland.

The bout is expected to take place some time just after midnight in Ireland and will be aired live on the DAZN over-the-top streaming service and, in the UK and Ireland, on Sky Sports Main Event.

Following Taylor’s fight there will be a further three contests before the main event in the early hours of Sunday morning.
