    TALE OF THE TAPE

    Here is how these two girls line up on paper tonight.

    'TASHA COMING 'ATCHA

    Natasha Jonas has told Taylor she is not worried about the past going into the ring tonight.

    She said: "I’ve got nothing to lose and if you’re in a fight for the four belts on the biggest stage, the biggest platform and you can’t get yourself up mentally then you’re probably in the wrong sport.

    “I’ve got absolutely nothing to lose and I’ll be presenting the best version of myself mentally and physically on the night and she has to be able to deal with that.

    “I proved last time I am world level. I know I have to be that and better for Taylor.

    “I wanted a challenge, I want to stay at this level, I want to be competing at this level and be winning at this level, more importantly.”

    WOMEN WITH ATTITUDE

    Good evening and welcome to tonight's blog of Katie Taylor's lightweight bout against Natasha Jonas.

    The Irishwoman warned Jonas to worry about her own damaged chin before vowing to knock her out.

    The Olympic icon defends her undisputed lightweight crown and 17-0 record against her old London 2012 rival tonight.

    Jonas, 36, has boldly predicted that she is the one with the power to cause a shock KO inside the ten two-minute rounds.

    But only Jonas has a stoppage defeat on her record and Taylor used her trademark whisper to menacingly remind her.

    The Wicklow warrior said: "I don't think I'm someone who anyone can get under my skin.

    "Tasha has a loss on her record, and that loss has come from a knockout, so if anybody can be hurt it's her."

    Taylor, 34, remembers her 2012 quarter-final victory over GB's Jonas in London as the fight that sparked the women's sport into life.

    She said: "Without the Olympic Games, I don't think pro women's boxing would be where it is right now."
