Olympic champion lines up first fight after London Olympics.
It now looks certain that Olympic, World and European champion Katie Taylor’s first fight since winning gold at the London Olympics will be against American lightweight Queen Underwood.
If the fight goes ahead it will take place at the Grand Canal Theatre in Dublin on February 24th.
Natasha Jonas from Liverpool who Taylor beat on her way to the title in London was offered a rematch but refused it is reported.
Underwood and Taylor are no strangers with the Bray woman having beaten her three times in the past.
However the Seattle fighter is no pushover having run Taylor close at the 2010 AIBA World Championships in Barbados.
As a footnote Taylor received her third AIBA World Female Boxer of the Year award on Friday 7th December in Yerevan, Armenia, at the AIBA World Youth Men’s Championships.
