Jennifer Han knows exactly how the Fans, Pundits and professionals see her title fight with Undisputed lightweight champion Katie Taylor, which takes place on Saturday Sept. 4th on Mauricio Lara Vs Josh Warrington Rematch undercard at the Emerald Headingley Stadium in Leeds.

Han (18-3-1 1 KO), a former IBF Featherweight champion will be taking on the biggest fight in her career after taking some time off due to child birth but has worked her way back to shape and believes she can upset odds against the unbeaten undisputed Lightweight champion Katie Taylor on Saturday.

Han has only fought ones outside the US and was edged with a decision back in 2013, when she fought Ji Hye Woo. She felt she had done enough to win the fight but the decision was taken away from her. Han knows she has to be at her very best to win the fight and take the titles away from the unbeaten Taylor.

“I’ve been a road warrior, I know how it is, the odds are stacked against me, she’s the hometown girl – I get it,” said Han. “When I went to Korea, I felt I dominated the fight and the decision was taken away from me, so this time I have to not only dominate but be in command of every single round or go for the KO.

“This is huge, it’s the biggest fight of my life and you can’t get bigger than Katie Taylor. I’m going to be fighting for all her belts, this is the greatest opportunity that God has blessed me with, I’ve worked my whole life for this, and I am ready.

The 38 year old will be moving up in weight to face Taylor at 135 pounds, in a fight that has been long overdue and was derailed due to the COVID 19 restrictions and requirements of last year and also due to the fact that, she was having a baby. However, she is prepared to take on the biggest test in her professional career.

“After I fought last year, I was meant to defend my title again versus the interim champion, but she lost, and the new champion wasn’t ready to fight yet. The IBF granted me the opportunity to fight Jeri, and then they made me the number one contender at Lightweight so I could fight Katie – but then COVID got in the way and crushed those dreams.

“Americans weren’t allowed to go over to the UK, so the fight was shelved, there was nothing out there for me, so I had baby number two. I kept my number one spot which I did, I didn’t think that the opportunity would come around so soon, but it has, you must be prepared for this, and I am, it’s great and I have trained so hard for this and it’s going to be so worth it.

Han also reserved some praises for Taylor, for her accomplishments but was clear, she has never faced an opponent on her level and with the odds stacked up against her, she will be happy, if Taylor takes those odds into consideration to create a perfect stage for an upset.

“She has amazing strengths, an Olympic gold medalist, Undisputed World Champion, she’s beaten a lot of talented fighters, but they are not the same as me, and I think what I bring to the table she hasn’t seen before so I hope that I surprise her with my technique.

“I hope she underestimates me and takes into consideration all the things that are stacked up against me. I hope she hasn’t trained hard; she’s taken me for granted, that’d be sweeter for me.

Han relishes the opportunity to fight in such a big stage and was mostly expecting to get herself on TV, showcase her talent like she has always done but see’s this as the biggest stage in her career.

“I hope she underestimates me and takes into consideration all the things that are stacked up against me. I hope she hasn’t trained hard; she’s taken me for granted, that’d be sweeter for me.
