1 min


EDDIE HEARN CONFIRMED IN INTERVIEW WITH SKY SPORTS IF THE IRISH CHAMPION IS SUCCESSFUL IN TAKING THE WBO BELT FROM ROSE VOLANTE SHE WILL SECURE THE BOUT ON ANTHONY JOSHUA VS JARRELL MILLER UNDER CARD Promoter Eddie Hearn confirmed he intends to deliver a massive fight between Taylor and WBC champion Persoon, with all four of the division’s world titles at stake in Madison Square Garden. “Yes, correct,” Hearn told Sky Sports. “Delfine Persoon actually won at the weekend, impressive stoppage, and if Katie can get past Volante at the weekend, we want to make the undisputed fight on the AJ card at Madison Square Garden. “It would just be the most amazing occasion.” Katie Taylor must first get passed WBO champion Volante, an undefeated Brazilian, who has stopped both of her challengers to date.. “She’s got a tough fight against Volante,” said Hearn. “She’s got a good team, is incredibly strong. They are bang up for this fight, all the pressure is on Katie Taylor, but we know she’s a beast. “We know she is, in my opinion, pound-for-pound the best female fighter in the world, and her long-time objective was to be the undisputed champion. She’s effectively two fights away from that. “That could happen on June 1, if she’s successful on Friday.” Watch Katie Taylor’s unification clash with Rose Volante and Tevin Farmer’s IBF title fight with Jono Carroll in Philadelphia on Friday, from 11pm on Sky Sports Action.
