Here's all of the info you need to watch DAZN in Ireland.
Katie Taylor is the undisputed lightweight champion of the world, she's fought 22 times professionally winning all 22 fights, six of those coming by way of Knock out. This Saturday will be the Bray Native's first professional fight on Irish soil as she seeks to add Cameron's light-welterweight belts to her WBA, WBC, IBF and WBO titles.
Taylor had originally been set to defend those titles in a repeat of her famous showdown with Amanda Serrano, with some posing the fight for Croke Park. However, when Eddie Hearn and Croke Park couldn't reach an agreement the 3 Arena was announced to host the encounter. Serano later pulled out of the clash, with Chantelle Cameron taking her place in what could be the greatest women's fight of all time.
Cameron is the undisputed light-welterweight champion holding all four belts at that weight. She's fought 17 times winning all 17, 8 of those coming by way of knockout. The fight will be in Cameron's favour as Katie Taylor moves up a weight to take on the British Boxer.
This could very well be one of Katie Taylor's steepest challenges, she's the favourite on paper but in practice, very little will separate the two fighters. However, a win for Taylor in the sold-out 3 Arena would only further her place as one of the greatest Irish sportspeople.
