THE LOWDOWN

Katie Taylor is putting her WBA, WBC, IBF, WBO, and The Ring female lightweight titles on the line in this highly-anticipated rematch against Delfine Persoon. Taylor has an unblemished record of 15-0 in the professional ranks, but she was perhaps fortunate to get the nod on points against Persoon in their thrilling ten-rounder at Madison Square Garden in June 2019.

Belgium’s Delfine Persoon is hungry for revenge after that defeat against Taylor and she has the undoubted quality to make this fight as competitive as the first one was. Persoon has only lost twice in 46 professional bouts and successfully defended the IBF lightweight title on numerous occasions prior to losing it to Taylor in that aforementioned bout.

THE PREDICTION

This fight may be taking place at ‘Matchroom Square Garden’ as opposed to Madison Square Garden but regardless of the venue both fighters will be highly-motivated and hopefully we will be treated to another enthralling encounter between these two top quality boxers. Taylor will probably opt to avoid getting embroiled in such a torrid battle this time out, she has the ability to outbox her opponent and a points victory for the champion is tipped.

Prediction: Taylor to win on points
