Women?s boxing is slowly starting to become more accepted.

In recent times fights involving the females of our species have started to appear on the under-cards of the big shows.

One female fighter who is tipped to have a huge future is the Irish lady Katie Taylor.

Having turned professional Taylor, the 2012 Olympic champion, has won her opening two fights, against Karina Kopinska and Viviane Obenhauf, in convincing fashion.

Taylor will have her third fight on the bill topped by the clash between Haye and Bellew, with the 30-year-old fighting an opponent who has yet to be named.

Talking about her plans for this year, Katie has remarked to the media,

‘It’s the start of a very big year for me and there are big plans but I need to keep winning and performing.

‘I think people are really excited about the Haye-Bellew fight and the rivalry between those guys and as a boxer these are the kind of nights you want to be a part of.

‘It’s a massive stage for me and I’m really looking forward to it.’


And so are we, as women?s boxing starts to make an impact in what has always been a male dominated sport.
