The Road to Rio

Katie Taylor returns to the ring on Sunday 24th February and Friday 22nd MARCH!
Olympic Champion Katie Taylor will return to the ring for two dates on Sunday, February 24th and Friday 22nd March at the Bord Gáis Energy Theatre. The bout swill see Taylor start on “The Road to Rio”, a journey she hopes will end with a second Olympic Gold at the 2016 games in Brazil.

Katie will take on a top-class international opponent as she puts the London Olympics behind her and sets her sights on future goals following her decision to remain an amateur boxer and target further Olympic, World and European titles.

Promoter Brian Peters says he’s honoured to be working with Taylor. “Katie will be immortalised for what she has achieved in her career. Even before London her achievements were extraordinary while the role she played in having women’s boxing included as an Olympic sport should never be forgotten. She lifted the whole nation during the summer and in an age of fleeting celebrity she is truly a sporting icon and a national treasure. I’m delighted that people will have a chance to witness her talent first hand at a venue like the Bord Gáis Energy Theatre. We want to make this a family event for young and old because Katie is such an inspirational figure and as a nation we could not ask for a better role model for the next generation.”
