Katie Taylor faces experienced Pole in London

Katie Taylor faces experienced Pole in London

Irish boxing superstar Katie Taylor will face Karina Kopinska on her pro debut at The SSE Arena, Wembley in London on Saturday November 26.

Taylor left her glittering career in amateur boxing behind to make a move into the paid ranks.

The 30 year old’s 15-year career garnered five World titles, six European titles and Olympic gold at the London 2012 games.

Taylor’s opposition, 27-year-old Kopinska is entering her 25th professional bout, and recently took the WBC Super-Featherweight champion Eva Wahlstrom the distance.

Taylor will be looking to kick-off with a commanding win as she then heads to the Manchester Arena on December 10 on the undercard of the IBF World Heavyweight title defence of fellow Olympic gold medal star Anthony Joshua MBE.
