Katie Taylor's World Title Fight Confirmed For October 28th

Katie Taylor's World Title Fight Confirmed For October 28th
By Arthur James O'Dea Updated

Katie Taylor is set to have her first professional World title fight on October 28th; it is to be on the undercard of Anthony Joshua's similarly staked bout with Kubrat Pulev in Cardiff's Principality Stadium.

With a 6-0 professional record, Taylor, who is represented by Eddie Hearn and Matchroom Sport, turned professional in 2016 after a stellar career as an amateur. Hearn announced the fight this afternoon during a press conference featuring Joshua and the challenger.

A five time World champion at 60 kg, Taylor became an Olympic gold medalist for Ireland at the 2012 London games.

On a night that Joshua defends his IBF, WBA and IBO heavyweight titles for the first time since claiming the latter two from Wladimir Klitschko in April, Taylor opponent, Anahi Esther Sanchez, is a two-weight World champion herself.

Coming from Argentina, Sanchez holds a 17-2 professional record and will have her WBA World lightweight belt on the line for next month's bout. However, despite a five year difference in age between the two, the 26 year old Sanchez has clocked up those two defeats in the last twelve months.

The fight will be broadcast on Sky Box Office and we will be releasing more details of when and how you can watch the fight later next month.
