KATIE TAYLOR WILL fight for the second time this month after it was confirmed she had earned a place on the undercard of Anthony Crolla’s rematch with Jorge Linares.

The bout will take place on 25 March at Manchester Arena though no opponent is in place just yet.

It will be Taylor’s fourth fight as a professional and comes after a facile victory over Italy’s Monica Gentili on the Tony Bellew-David Haye bill last Saturday.

She told Sky Sports:

“It was a great atmosphere at The O2, but every fight is a big one. You can’t afford to slip up in the pro game so every fight is like an Olympic final.

“Saturday was the first time as a pro that I had a proper camp, I got great sparring in America with seasoned pros every day so I am learning all the time. I feel more than ever that the pro game is made for me.”

After Saturday’s win, Promoter Eddie Hearn hinted that a September world title fight could be on the cards for the Bray woman.
