by Michael O'Neill

Katie Taylor will fight leading U.S light-welterweight, Cashmere Jackson, from Cleveland, Ohio on March 30th at Cork’s Silver Springs Hotel in her last bout in Ireland prior to setting off for the 2012 World championships – and only female Olympic qualifier – in Qinhuangdao, China . At that event, Taylor will be seeking to win the 60kg lightweight title for a record fourth successive time.

In Cork she comes up against Cashmere Jackson who has lost only one of her previous 22 bouts (that in the 2010 World’s in Barbados where she went out at the semi-final stage). Jackson did not take part in the recent U.S.A Olympic trials in Spokane having opted earlier to retain her U.S Light-Welter crown (which she won in 2010 and 2011) as part of her own preparations for the Qinhuangdao championships which commence May 9th.

Irish fans though will have other opportunities to see Taylor in action this month for she is almost certain to be part of the Irish team for internationals against the Netherlands in Dublin’s National Stadium on March 23rd and in Cavan two nights later. Taylor’s opponent against the Dutch is likely to be Jessica Belder, the no 1 light weight whom Taylor has defeated in 2011 in Ireland.
