Katie Taylor and Rose Volante make weight for unification clash

Taylor admitted she would love to secure a stoppage victory but is ready to go the distance against her fellow undefeated opponent Volante.

“That will be fantastic if I could stop her but I’m ready for a tough 10-round fight, it’s going to be the hardest fight of my career so far. I am prepared for this bout but I just want to perform great tomorrow evening. I hope I make it a happy Paddy’s Day for everyone.”

Jono Carroll and home favourite Tevin Farmer were both inside the 130lbs super featherweight limit with the Irish challenger weighing 129.2lbs and the IBF champion 129.7lbs.

Carroll and Farmer, who clashed during the press conferences, had to be restrained during the face-off with both men shouting at each other with their noses touching.

Luke Campbell weighed 137.8lbs for his 10-rounder with Adrian Young, who at 138.1lbs, was a shade over the catchweight limit of 138.
