Katie Taylor is the headliner. And I know they've been talking about Crolla having a farewell bout, so I guess we have to wait to see if this is it at the press conference.

Gotta be a rematch for Taylor if she's headlining, surely?

First ever Women's fight I'll look forward to.

Not sure Katie Taylor can beat both of these guys at the same time, Hearn taking a chance here but its imaginative and game changing promotion.

Taylor going up in weight so doesn't sound like Persoon is on her radar at the moment, which is shit.

Gives all these girls who are calling her out an opportunity to do a job on Persoon and make Taylor look bad though.

If it’s not the Peerson rematch then it’s shite. Don’t blame them for not wanting it though, getting bashed up by a roughhouse a division below her.

Moving up in weight against someone who was fighting at 130lbs last year :lol:

I can see the Taylor fight being deemed the 'main event', but Crolla going on last.

Garbage. Crolla having a fairwell fight will shift tickets for this but Hearn will use the numbers to push the female boxing agenda which very few are interested in, let alone buy tickets for.

Round and about
Which is a shame, because there are very few female fights that will get people interested -- but that's one of them.
It was a good pub brawl. They beat the crap outta each other, fixed their bras then staggered off to the kebab shop. :lol:

In the IFL video in Manchester from yesterday Hearn states the Persoon rematch MUST happen.

Then in the same breath announces this fight and that Seranno has signed to fight Taylor next year. There will also be mandos coming up.

I reckon they are leaving Persoon in the cold in the hope she gets beaten or just moves on with her career.
