Katie Taylor v Firuza Sharipova: TV channel details, fight time & card details

Katie Taylor Shapirova

Here is everything you need to know ahead of Taylor’s fight against Sharipova.

Katie Taylor will defend her undisputed lightweight world title against Firuza Sharipova on Saturday night, and here is everything you need to know, including card details, what time the fight takes place and TV info.

Who is Katie Taylor’s opponent Firuza Sharipova?

Kazakhstani boxer Sharipova will attempt to become the first professional boxer to defeat Bray’s own Katie Taylor at the M & S Bank Arena in Liverpool.

While Taylor has yet to suffer defeat in the ring since turning pro, she has shown signs of weakness at times in recent bouts, and the Kazakhstani will be hoping to pounce on that.

The 27-year-old has a professional record of 15-1 herself, however, with the Liverpool bout being the first time she has fought in the UK since turning pro herself.

Sharipova has also won her last two fights in a row by TKO, as she hunts down the WBA, WBC, IBF, WBO, and The Ring female lightweight titles.

She has also enlisted the help of Taylor’s greatest amateur boxing foe Sofya Ochigava in order to try and defeat the Bray woman, with Ochigava previously beating Taylor.

The Russian, however, lost to Taylor in the 2012 London Olympics final, although she still disputes that defeat.

How has Katie Taylor fared since turning professional?

Since turning pro in 2016, Taylor now has a professional record of 19-0, with the 35-year-old rarely being tested since making the switch to the pro ranks.

And following her majority decision win against Delfine Persoon, Taylor has won her last five bouts by unanimous decision, with the most recent of which coming against Jennifer Han in September.

Should Taylor secure a win against Sharipova, she will take on Amanda Serrano in one of the biggest fight’s women’s boxing has ever seen in Spring 2022.

Where is the fight on and who else is on the card?

Katie Taylor’s latest fight is on in Liverpool, and it will be on just before the main event that will see Conor Benn take on Chris Algieri. Taylor is expected to make her ring-walk at 9pm Irish time.
