Katie Taylor won the third fight of her pro career on Saturday night, stopping Italian opponent Monica Gentili in the fifth round at the O2 Arena on the David Haye vs Tony Bellew card.
In an interview with Sky Sports after the fight, Taylor said she believes herself to be ready for a world title challenge.
However, her promoter Eddie Hearn feels the Bray boxer still requires a few more bouts before she takes that step.
Hearn outlined what he sees as Taylor's path to a title fight.
Next up will be an appearance on the Anthony Crolla vs Jorge Linares card at the Manchester Arena on March 25th. That could be followed a month later by a fight on the Anthony Joshua vs Wladimir Klitschko card at the Wembley Arena on April 29th.
One fight somewhere in the US will likely precede Taylor's first challenge for a world title.
She's got to learn and Gentili was tough again.
We're going to box again on the Anthony Crolla vs Jorge Linares card in Manchester in three weeks time. Maybe Wembley as well. Then once in the States and then I think she's ready for a world title.
She needs to get some rounds in the bag. It's good to get that many rounds. Maybe an eight rounder thrown in as well and then I think it's a matter of time before she challenges for a world title.
