As the expectation grows and Saturday approaches, the events prior to Katie Taylor’s defense against Natasha Jonas are being held in Manchester. On Thursday it was the turn of the last press conference, in which the World Boxing Association (WBA) Champion and her challenger gave their impressions about what they expect from the fight.
The Irish will defend her black and gold belt, along with the WBO, WBC, and IBF belts, in what will be a good fight against an opponent like Jonas, who is eager to ruin the champion’s night.
Taylor said she is motivated to give a good show and is ready for any challenge: “I am in this sport to fight against the best. I expect a great fight this Saturday.”
Jonas showed her enthusiasm and said that she is always the underdog in every fight, but she wants to surprise Taylor.
It was a great event with good press attendance and the presence of each fighter’s trainers on the stage to talk about the preparations and camps they had.
The weigh-in ceremony will take place this Friday, the last step before the fight, and once they complete it, they will be ready to offer another great night of boxing to the world fans this Saturday.
