When is Katie Taylor v Delfine Persoon?The fight is one of the big fights of lockdown and it’ll be well worth tuning into on Sky Sports Box Office.

Taylor v Persoon is expected to get underway at around 9pm.
The full fight card for Saturday August 22 is:
- Dillian Whyte v Alexander Povetkin (WBC interim heavyweight title)
- Katie Taylor v Delfine Persoon (Unified WBA, WBC, IBF, WBO, and The Ring female lightweight titles)

Taylor v Persoon: Who is Favourite To Win?The two fighters have met before, back in June last year and Taylor won by majority decision on that occasion.
She’s favourite to get the win once again, priced at 2/7 with Paddy Power, although the Belgian Persoon bounced back with a good win against Helen Joseph last November. She’s priced at 10/3 to get the win.
The bookies are backing the decision or a points win for Taylor and we’d be inclined to agree, with nine out of Taylor’s 15 fights having gone the distance.
The bookmaker is pricing the decision at 4/7 and is far and away the betting market to back.

Tale of The TapeDelfine Persoon is a much more experienced fighter than Katie Taylor but the latter is one of the best in the business and is only getting better.
Taylor is a year Persoon’s junior but has fought 31 times fewer than the Belgian. Persoon’s record is impressive, having lost only twice, but the fact one of those was to Taylor really does leave a lasting impression.

Our Katie Taylor v Delfine Persoon TipsIt’s almost inevitable that this fight will go the distance and given the trajectory of Taylor’s career it’s difficult to not be backing the Irish champion.
There’s little value in doing so, priced at 4/7 with Betvictor to win by decision, but it could be worth backing as a double with the Whyte v Povetkin fight, with us also seeing a Whyte win by KO at 6/4 with the bookie.
The double can be backed at 19/10 with Betvictor and provides a much better payout on what will be a fantastic night of boxing.
