KATIE TAYLOR FACES the biggest challenge of her professional career so far on Saturday night.

The 2012 Olympic champion faces the unbeaten Nina Meinke in a world title eliminator in a sold-out Wembley Stadium.

Taylor took the ring yesterday for an open workout, and showed off her hand/eye co-ordination and speed in this drill with a difference.

Wearing a baseball cap with an elastic band and tennis ball attached to it, Taylor bobbed around the ring while testing her reflexes.


Here’s full footage of the workout from IFL TV. The tennis ball drill begins around 8:30:
