Ireland’s Olympic champion and five times World titleholder, Katie Taylor makes a welcome return to the ring in Kanturk, Co.Cork on Saturday 19th February, when she takes on Sweden’s Jelena Jelic, who has previously represented her native Serbia at World and European level in recent years, at 57kg, 60kg and 64kg level.
The event takes place in Dromtariffe Community Hall and with a full supporting card the entrance fees are €20 (adults) €10 (children),so a great opportunity for those in Cork, Kerry and other nearby counties to buy your ticket in advance and see one of Ireland’s all-time great sportswomen in action against a top class International opponent, Jelena Jelic. Tickets are sure to sell quickly
This is Katie’s first bout since winning the inaugural European Games Lightweight (60kg) crown last June and for some weeks now Katie and her Management have been searching for an opponent ahead of the European Olympic qualifiers (scheduled for Istanbul) and the AIBA Women’s World championships in Kazakhstan, both of which take place prior to August’s XXX1 Olympiad in Rio.
