Former Belgian world champion Delfine Persoon is training to face WBC lightweight champion Irish Katie Taylor in a keenly awaited rematch, which will be in the UK.
Persoon and Taylor fought in June of last year, at Madison Square Garden in New York. Taylor won a majority decision in ten rounds, in a nail bitingly close encounter.
The two fighters will meet for the second time, on August 22 in Brentwood, England.
Persoon is training hard for this important commitment. She said: “Technically Katie is a very good boxer, maybe better than me. I hope this time she comes out to fight and we can have good exchanges of blows. This is a professional fight, it’s 10 two minute rounds. People want to see two fighters delivering everything above the ring, not just running, “Persoon told Sky Sports.
