World, European and European Union amateur champion Katie Taylor will face American lightweight Queen Underwood at the National Stadium in Dublin, Ireland on Friday night as part of the Ireland versus USA men's senior international at the home of Irish boxing.
Taylor, of the Bray Boxing club, claimed her second consecutive world title in Ningbo City, China last year and was also crowned AIBA female boxer of 2008 in Moscow in December.
Underwood won a Chicago Golden Gloves title in 2007 before going on to win a 2007 National title. She has also represented her country at World Championship level.
Note: Katie Taylor is the second most searched-for boxer on my worldwide boxer bio site wban.org these days, topped ONLY by Laila Ali! She is becoming the "international emblem" of women's amateur boxing on the internet, only India's Mary Kom coming close to her in number of search requests. .
