Breaking: Katie Taylor Confirmed For Massive Test Against Delfine Persoon

Katie Taylor has been confirmed for a massive title-unification showdown against the WBC champion, Delfine Persoon in Madison Square Garden on June 1.

The fight will take place on the main-card of Anthony Joshua’s heavyweight title defense against Jarrell Miller.

Taylor will face off against by far the biggest test of her career to date, the fourth-ranked pound-for-pound boxer in the sport today (according to BoxRec), WBC champion Delfine Persoon.

Unbeaten in nine years, boasting a 43-1 record, the bout will stand as another opportunity for Taylor to impress on the pro-circuit, with this matchup standing as her most stylistically interesting clash to date.

Last seen in action on March 9 with a win over Melissa St Vil, Persoon has won 34 fights in a row and had been campaigning for a matchup against Taylor since last year when she reportedly offered the Bray native $100,000 to fight her.
