Can Katie Taylor do it again?



Television news


Grab yourself a ringside seat on April 29 as Katie Taylor gets set to enter the ring to go toe-to-toe with Germany’s Nina Meinke at Wembley Stadium in an eliminator for the WBA World Lightweight title.

This will be Katie’s fifth professional bout. The Bray Bomber has fought four professional fights so far, with two victories by technical knockout.

Katie certainly is a force to be reckoned with – she already has an Olympic gold, five World Championship titles, six European titles and five EU championships to her credit. That’s a lot of sporting bling for the mantelpiece.

Speaking to the Irish Times, she said, “It’s a massive fight for me on a massive night of boxing.

“I’ve only been a professional for five months, and already been lucky enough to box on some huge events. But Wembley Stadium on the Joshua-Klitschko card is going to be something else again.”

Taylor will be fighting on the Anthony Joshua-Wladimir Klitschko undercard. It looks like the clash of the titans as the two six-foot-six bruisers square off for the IBF, IBO and WBA Uper Heavyweight Championships in the culmination of a five-fight card that promises to be a great night of boxing.

England’s Joshua has 18 knockouts to his credit. That’s very impressive – until you see that the Ukrainian Klitschko (A.K.A. ‘Dr Steelhammer’) has clocked up 64 wins (53 of them KOs and just 4 defeats).

Here’s all you need to know about the night’s fights:

First Fight: 18:30 approx.
Main event: 22:00 approx.
Curfew 22:50
