Katie Taylor Title Defence Can Be Watched For Free This Weekend

Katie Taylor's world lightweight title defence against Miriam Gutiérrez will be available to watch free on Sky Sports' YouTube and Facebook platforms this weekend.

The Bray fighter takes on the 37-year-old Spaniard at the Wembley Arena this Saturday evening. The fight comes just three months following Taylor's unanimous decision win against Delfine Persoon.

Saturday's card is a tripe-header of world title fights. It also features Terri Harper's WBC super-featherweight defence against Katharina Thanderz and Rachel Ball’s WBA bantamweight title fight with Jorgelina Guanini.

The fights will also be available to watch on Sky Sports Arena and on skysports.com. Coverage begins at 7pm.

"This is more ground-breaking news that helps us push women’s boxing to where it needs to be," said Taylor's promoter Eddie Heard.

"The momentum of the last few years led by Katie Taylor has been special to watch but we have still got a long way to go.

"Nights like Saturday change the narrative of the sport, and as I have said before, it’s not men’s boxing and it’s not women’s boxing, it’s just boxing.

"Katie Taylor is a trailblazer and it is only right that she headlines this card on Saturday on a moment that we have all been working towards for a very long time.

"The key is to give these great fighters the platform to become stars and achieve their dreams. Without the support from Sky Sports this would not be possible and I’m so happy that so many people will be able to watch Saturday’s event."
