Eight years after her famous Olympic victory over Natasha Jonas that sparked a women’s boxing revolution in the UK and Ireland, Katie Taylor is preparing to make more history in the sport on Saturday night. The 34-year-old puts her WBC, WBA, IBF and WBO lightweight titles on the line against Spain’s Miriam Gutierrez in London.
Taylor’s triumph over Jonas set new decibel records at London’s ExCel and it is a mark of how far women’s boxing has progressed that talk of a professional rematch between the pair raises the very real prospect of a post-COVID stadium-filler.
Taylor said: “I think it would make a fantastic fight.
“She showed in her last fight that she’s still capable of producing great performances, she is at that level and it is a fight that people would be very, very interested in.
“If it’s a fight that people want to see then I’m very happy to take that fight, and I’m sure she would be too.
