Katie Taylor is the undisputed world lightweight champion (Richard Sellers/PA)
Katie Taylor defends her undisputed lightweight crown against Jennifer Han on the undercard of Josh Warrington’s rematch against Mauricio Lara on Saturday.
Taylor, who is undefeated in 18 professional bouts, most recently defeated Natasha Jonas in a thrilling contest and is targeting a mega-bout against seven-weight world champion Amanda Serrano next year.
Taylor cannot afford to take Han lightly, though, despite the American’s lack of recent ring time. A former world champion in her own right, Han has fought just once in the last three years but already boasts 18 professional victories.

The fight forms part of an exciting undercard in front of 20,000 fans at Headingley Stadium, with Conor Benn also returning to the ring against Adrian Granados.
Here is everything you need to know:
When is the fight and what time will it start?
The main card starts at 7pm, with Ebanie Bridges vs Mailys Gangloff kicking things off, Jovanni Straffon and Maxi Hughes are next, before Conor Benn steps into the ring with Granados, so we can expect The Destroyer to be in the ring some time after 8pm, while Katie Taylor is next up against Jennifer Han, which should get underway at around 9pm. Though DAZN have stated that the main event should start “approximately two hours later” following the start of the main card at 7pm, so Taylor could be in action earlier. Despite DAZN’s intent to showcase their main events earlier than usual, Josh Warrington against Mauricio Lara will likely start closer to 10pm.
