The Irish powerhouse and the unified lightweight champion, Katie Taylor, is ready to defend her titles when she enters the ring against Miriam Gutierrez on November 14. Coming off strong from her recent win against Delfine Persoon in August, ‘The Bray Bomber’ is at the peak of her career at this point.
That said, her upcoming opponent might not be an easy contender to deal with. Similar to Taylor, she hasn’t tasted defeat yet. Thus, someone’s clean record is going to fall when Taylor and Gutierrez lock horns. However, Katie Taylor is still the favorite in the contest. Considering her title reign and constant dominance, Taylor is leading the odds.
Moreover, she has recently thrilled the fight fans by giving a glimpse of her training, where she is pouring all her power on a punching bag.
The unified female lightweight champion posted a clip on social media, showcasing her powerful hands. She was pouring it all on the bag.
It is no surprise that Gutierrez needs to stay alert throughout the fight. Although Taylor has got only 6 knockouts in her 16 professional wins, she will hunt for a KO in her next fight. She won’t mind taking it to the distance too.
Meanwhile, the Spaniard also has the tools to land a stunner. Boasting a professional record of 13 wins (5 KOs) and 0 losses, Miriam Gutierrez is one of the most lethal punchers in the women’s division. She can become the new unified lightweight champion in her next fight.
Not only that, but a win against Taylor will also ensure her stardom and global popularity ahead. She is already a well-known elite, but defeating Taylor will bring a lot more for her. Thus, she will do everything to seal the victory.
Taylor vs Gutierrez will be a 10-round battle in the Wembley Arena, London. No doubt, fight fans will witness an epic women’s lightweight title showdown soon.
Should Katie Taylor pass this test, Eddie Hearn (Taylor’s promoter) will attempt to set up a boxing match with Bellator MMA’s featherweight champion, Cris Cyborg.
