Katie Taylor to face WBO champion Rose Volante in Philadelphia

Katie Taylor stops Rose Volante to unify WBA, WBO and IBF lightweight titles

Taylor sets sights on Persoon and winner-takes-all bout

"To actually overcome that pressure, those nerves, is ideal preparation for those kind of fights coming up", said Taylor, whose bruised face bore testimony to the kind of battle she had faced in her 13th professional bout.

"I think she identifies with it as being a fighter because it talks about training your hands for battle", Bridget said. She's very calming, which is working for her. "But, just like she did as an amateur, she is turning the non-believers into believers one by one".

"We've got some awesome fighters on both sides of the pond but you can't help but admire someone with that much dedication and passion for what they do".

She said in her post-fight interview in the ring: "Now we can start talking about that fight, Persoon".

Promoter Eddie Hearn has confirmed that victory for Taylor would secure a summer showdown against WBC belt holder Delfine Persoon, with all the world titles at stake, on the Anthony Joshua-Jarrell Miller undercard on June 1, live on Sky Sports Box Office. We want each other's belts and unbeaten records, but I have had a great camp and I am full of confidence. She was everything I expected.

"When she made a decision to go professional it was a leap into the unknown for all of us", says Brian.

Russian crew blasts off to International Space Station
The problem that prevented Hague and Ovchinin from reaching the ISS seems to have been fixed, as no incidents were reported since. The system detached a capsule with the crew from the rocket and sent it back down to the ground on a severe ballistic trajectory.


The fight will be aired on Sky Sport Main Event.

"That's a huge honor for me to hear the best heavyweight in the world, just to hear him say those things is incredible", she says.

Although Taylor outclassed her Brazilian opponent on the night, the marks on the Irish woman's face afterwards indicated she didn't have it all her own way.

"She's a unsafe opponent, she comes into this fight obviously undefeated as well", Taylor says of the Brazilian, who will be making her US debut. She has a big right hand, and I knew she was going to try and put the pressure on me right from the start.
