Katie Taylor vs. Natasha Jonas 1/5/21
On Maynight at the Manchester Arena in the United Kingdom, undisputed lightweight champion, Katie Taylor (17-0, 6 KOs), will defend her titles against Natasha Jonas (9-1-1, 7 KOs).
Katie consolidated who`s a supreme champion, has just beaten Miriam Gutiérrez in her most recent fight, in November.
On her side Natasha, she came very close to winning her first world title last summer when she drew WBC super featherweight champion Terri Harper.
Both were face to face in a press conference where they commented on some aspects of the impending combat:
“It’s important for me to produce a great performance every time I step into the ring and that is why I train hard and why I get up every morning and do the road work. I want to show my absolute best every time I get into that ring.
“Right now, I feel very fresh. I obviously still love my job as well and that’s what motivates me. I absolutely love boxing.
“I just want to continue to improve, and it would be amazing to become a multi weight undisputed champion. I just want to be involved in the biggest fights possible and I want to continue to tear down those barriers.”

“I’ve got nothing to lose and if you’re in a fight for the four belts on the biggest stage, the biggest platform and you can’t get yourself up mentally then you’re probably in the wrong sport. I’ll be presenting the best version of myself mentally and physically on the night and she has to be able to deal with that.
“I know that I’m not boxing the aura that is, the legacy that is, the legend that is Katie Taylor, I’m just boxing another human. Everyone’s got weaknesses, everyone’s human, and I will be trying to capitalise on them and put my best foot forward.
“Everyone mentions the Persoon fights, but styles make fights and I’m not Persoon, but what I do think Persoon did was make her (Taylor) look human.”
