Fight Preview

Katie Taylor comes into this fight with a 19-0 record including six knockouts. This will be her third fight this year and her fifth since August 2020 so fatigue may play a factor as Taylor hasn't really rested at all in the last year. However she has dominated the lightweight division, winning her last five fights by unanimous decision and is the bookies' favourite to win again.

Sharipova isn't too shabby either. She has been unbeaten for over five years and her only loss in her pro career came in her first fight when she lost to Sofya Ochigava, the woman Taylor beat for the gold medal at the 2012 olympics. Sharipova has actually called on Ochigava for her training camp to help her beat Taylor. Sharipova should be one of Taylor's toughest challenges yet in her unbeaten pro career so far.
