Katie Taylor and Defline Persoon will come face-to-face for the first time since their epic Fight of the Year contender at Madison Square Garden last year in a special ePress Conference chaired by promoter Eddie Hearn at 8pm (BST) tonight on Matchroom Boxing’s YouTube channel ahead of their massive Undisputed Lightweight World Title rematch at Fight Camp on Saturday August 22, shown live on Sky Sports Box Office. 

The biggest rematch in the history of women’s boxing sees Irish legend Taylor (15-0, 6 KOs) put her WBC, WBA, IBF, WBO and Ring Magazine crowns on the line against  Belgium’s Persoon (44-2, 18 KOs), the former long-reigning WBC World Champion, at the Matchroom Boxing HQ in Brentwood, Essex, later this month. 

Taylor vs. Persoon 2 lands on the final week of Matchroom’s sizzling summer schedule as Dillian Whyte  (27-1, 18 KOs) puts his WBC Interim Heavyweight World Title on the line against Russia’s Alexander Povetkin (35-2-1, 24 KOs) in a battle of the left hooks and Luther Clay (13-1, 5 KOs) defends his WBO Global Welterweight Title against Chris Kongo (11-0, 6 KOs), with more fights to be confirmed soon.
