After just six fights as a professional, the Irish female fighter, Katie Taylor will be fighting for a world title.

Taylor, who has won four of her six fights by knockout, has been added to the huge bill Eddie Hearn is putting together at the Principality Stadium, in Cardiff, a bill topped by Anthony Joshua defending his WBA and IBF heavyweight titles against Kubrat Pulev.

Taylor, who won a gold medal at the Olympic Games held in London in 2012, will be taking on the two-weight world champion Anahi Sanchez.

Up for grabs, on 28th October, will be the WBA world lightweight crown.

Taylor faces a tough fight against her Argentine opponent, who took the vacant crown by beating another Argentine fighter, Cecila Sofia Mena.

Sanchez, in her career as a professional fighter, has had 19 fights, winning 17 and losing 2.

Coincidentally, both of Sanchez?s losses came in fights on European soil.

Last time out, Taylor showed her class by stopping Jasmine Clarkson, In Brooklyn, stopping the American fighter inside three rounds.

It promises to be a fascinating encounter.
