Exclusive: Katie Taylor being lined up for world title fight in Dublin

Katie Taylor is being lined up for as the headline act in a sensational boxing extravaganza at Dublin's Aviva Stadium next summer.

Promoter Eddie Hearn has confirmed he is already eyeing up a world title fight for Taylor after the Irish Olympic hero joined his stable of professional fighters last Thursday.

"Katie is a superstar in Ireland and I think it is possible to stage her first world title fight in Dublin next summer," Hearn told the Sunday World.

"It might be a fight we look to put on at an outdoor stadium."
