EVERY MORNING THESCORE.IE brings you the stories you need to know before your first cup of coffee.

1. #BOXING Katie Taylor is on the brink of a fourth world title, having won her semi-final on a scoreline of 16-6 this morning.

The 25-year-old from Bray led her opponent, Mavzuna Chorieva from Tajikistan, throughout in Qinhuangdao this morning. She’s now guaranteed at least a silver medal when she takes to the ring again tomorrow.

2. #HCUP Leinster and Ulster will today name their sides for a mouth-watering all-Ireland European Cup final in London tomorrow. Brad Thorn is looking to make world game history with a title win. We spoke to some of those involved in Ulster’s last continental victory this week to piece together this oral history of ’99 meanwhile.

5. #EURO2012 It’s time to get going. Giovanni Trapattoni yesterday held his first training session of the tournament camp with 10 or so of the Ireland squad. Here’s how it looked. We were in Donnybrook to chat to RTÉ’s team of pundits yesterday morning meanwhile, and Chippy Brady has some pretty interesting views on one of Ireland’s group rivals.

6. #CHAMPIONS LEAGUE There’s also the small matter of the Champions League final tomorrow. As well as being in Twickenham, we’ll have Miguel in Munich. Here’s the lay of the land at the moment.
