Katie Taylor's next opponent is Milena "Hells Baby" Koleva

(MAR 17)  Katie Taylor’s fourth Pro fight – on March 25th at Manchester Arena - will be against Sliven, Bulgaria’s Milena “Hell’s Baby” Koleva who has so far won nine of her seventeen bouts including three by knock out.

The 28 years old from Sliven, Bulgaria’s eight largest city, is two years younger than Taylor albeit the latter, as an ‘amateur’ has a wealth of experience having won not only an Olympic Gold medal but she has also won five consecutive gold medals at the Women's World Championships, six golds at the European Championships, and claimed another five at the European Union Championships. Add to that the inaugural European Games crown in Baku in 2015 and it is a record unlikely to be equalled in AIBA ranks.

The fight in Manchester, the Bray woman’s fourth professional fight will take place on the undercard of Anthony Crolla’s World Lightweight title unification rematch with Jorge Linares at the Manchester Arena on Saturday March 25, live on Sky Sports.

Taylor made it three fights unbeaten in the paid ranks with a second stoppage win after clinically dispatching Italian fifth round Monica Gentili on the undercard of Tony Bellew’s rollercoaster win over David Haye in London last month.

It will not be her first appearance either in the Manchester Arena having gone the distance with Vivienne Obenauf there in December, and Taylor is ready to put on another scintillating display as the 30 year old gets into her groove as a pro.

“The Linares Crolla fight rematch is a brilliant fight and another massive event. It was a great atmosphere at The O2, but every fight is a big one. You can’t afford to slip up in the pro game so every fight is like an Olympic final.

Taylor had intended to attend her friend Michael Conlan’s Pro debut at Madison Square Garden on St Patrick’s Day to support her fellow London 2012 medallist but it was not to be.

Instead she is flying back from her training camp in Connecticut (with Ross Enamait) this weekend ahead of her six-rounder with Koleva
“I was going to go to Michael’s fight to cheer him on but it’s too close to my fight. It’s an individual sport and you have to concentrate on yourself.

The highly experienced Bulgarian has fought for World titles and among her opponents in those previous 17 fights have been, Maiva Hamadouche, Myriam Dellal, Klara Svensson, Eva Walstrom, Delfine Persoon and Ina Menzer.
