Katie Taylor Says This Weekend’s Title Fight Is A Dream Come True
Irish women’s boxer Katie Taylor says this weekend’s title fight is something she has dreamed about for a long time. Taylor is set to fight for her firs world title on Saturday, almost 11 months to the day when he made her professional debut.
The Olympic gold medalist is set to fight Anahi Sanches for the WBA female lightweight title, on the undercard of heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua’s fight with Carlos Takam, exclusively live on Sky Sports Box Office.
“It’s very exciting. When I first sat down with Eddie (Hearn), we always planned to box for a world title in the space of a year, so we are definitely on track.” Taylor told Sky Sports.
“It’s just very exciting. I am expecting a tough fight. These are the kind of fights I dream of. I can’t wait.”
Should she pull off a famous win, Taylor will become Ireland’s first female boxing world champion.
“It’s a bit more intense and a bit more nerve-racking for this fight. There’s a lot on the line but these are the fights that get the best out of me. I can’t wait for it.”
