Katie Taylor vs Jennifer Han: Irish star to continue her boxing dominance

Taylor is looking to extend her unbeaten record to 19-0 and victory could see her face Chantelle Cameron next.

Katie Taylor says she is relishing the opportunity to make the latest defence of her undisputed lightweight crown this weekend at Headingley Stadium.

The Irish star, who will fight in front of 20,000 fans on the undercard of Lara vs Warrington 2, returns for the first time since overcoming Natasha Jonas in May - nine years on from their London 2012 Olympic Games bout.

Taylor will put her belts on the line against the six-time amateur champion and former IBF featherweight titlist Jennifer Han - her latest mandatory challenger who is enjoying an eight-fight winning streak.

"My father was born and raised in Leeds, so we all grew up as Leeds United fans," said Taylor.

"There are still a few Leeds United fans out there! I'm excited to fight in Leeds and in front of so many fans. It's kind of like a second home to me so I just can't wait.

"It's going to be so exciting boxing in front of 20,000 people. The atmosphere is going to be insane. Leeds fans are very passionate and loud."

Taylor to win 1/33

What Taylor has said:

"I think the last 12 months have been fantastic for me personally. I'm still sitting here as the undisputed champion, 18-0 with some fantastic performances and some amazing fights under my belt. The fights I've been in have elevated women's boxing to another level.

"This is the pinnacle of professional boxing - holding all of the belts, that's what everyone in professional boxing wants to do. Everyone's dream is to become the undisputed champion.

"I'm going to try my best to hold on to every one of those belts for as long as I can. This is what I'm in the sport for. I want to make history, I want to be a world champion and I want to hold all of the belts - I'm all in.

"The women are definitely more inclined to take a few more risks and actually go in and take the bigger fights. I love that about the female fighters. We actually want the big fights. We're willing and able to actually step in the ring and fight all of these other champions.

"I'm expecting the toughest fight from Jennifer. She has a lot of amateur experience and she's a very technical fighter. She's a six-time world champion. She was my number one mandatory as well so I had to take the fight.

"These girls have stepped up - they've boxed beyond themselves, they have raised their game against me. I'm expecting a very very tough fight and I'm going to be prepared like I have been for every single fight I've had over the last few years.

"She is a fighter that believes in herself. This fight is going to bring the best out of both of us. I love the fact that she's stepping into the ring confident like I am as well. I don't really take much notice of what other fighters say, I just focus on my own performance and my own preparation. We're going to be stepping into the ring 100% prepared.

"The only words that matter are, 'and still'. Training is going well - I feel good and sharp. I can't wait to step in again on September 4 and get another great victory."
