Katie Taylor 

“It’s great that she has finally signed for the fight and I’m delighted that Eddie has been able to make it,” said Taylor (13-0, 6KOs) who makes the seventh defense of at least one major lightweight title. “After my fight last month I went back home for a week but then it was straight back to Connecticut to start the hard work in training camp for this fight.
“When I turned professional my first goal was to win a World title but then my next priority was to become undisputed champion so obviously this fight gives me the opportunity to do that so it’s massive for my career.”

Delfine Persoon

“This is a very unique opportunity for me and I’m thankful we’ve got the fight made,” said Persoon, who makes the sixth defense of her World Boxing Council (WBC) lightweight title, the lone belt for which Taylor has yet to compete as a pro.“I did not have the opportunity to participate in the Olympic Games and now I get the chance to compete with the Olympic champion in Katie Taylor. I expect this will be a very tough and honest fight, and that the best boxer may win this title fight – and I expect that to be me.”
