    TAYLOR VS JONAS – ROUND FIVE

    Taylor is keeping Jonas at range and then stepping in with the left hook.

    Both fighters trade bodyshots in the middle of the ring, but it's Taylor who's in control.

    Jonas is finding it hard to overpower the Champion.

    TAYLOR VS JONAS – ROUND FOUR

    Jonas won round three, but Taylor won round one and two.

    Round four is vital for Jonas, and she's starting to show her skillset.

    Taylor, however, catches Jonas with a nice right hand and then a left hook knocking Jonas slightly off balance.

    The champion – at the end of the round – goes over the top of Jonas' jab and hits the Brit with a left hook.

    And it looks like the round will go to Taylor.

    TAYLOR VS JONAS – ROUND THREE

    Jonas is showing some real fight at the start of round three, landing some body shots.

    But Taylor hits back right away and the fight comes back to the centre of the ring.

    Jonas' corner says "she doesn't like it to the body" – that's where the key to victory could be for the Brit.

    "She's all over the place Sash," says Jonas' corner.

    TAYLOR VS JONAS – ROUND TWO

    Taylor catches Jonas with a sweet left hook – it's a good start by the champion.

    But Jonas lands a good shot of her own, catching Taylor with a jab.

    The referee has to have a quick word with the two fighters, not too sure what he's telling them.

    Taylor catches Jonas with a right hook just before the bell.

    And round two ends.

    All of the lightweight titles are on the line tonight, can Jonas get her hands on the belts?

    HATTON VS DUNN – ROUND FOUR

    Hatton starts the fourth and final round on the front foot!

    And he’s targeting the body, where he’s been getting some joy – but Dunn is still in it.

    The referee has to remind Hatton not to hit the back of the head, but apart from that it’s been a dominating display.

    It looks like Dunn is heading for another defeat.

  • Joshua Mbu

    HATTON VS DUNN – ROUND THREE

    Round three of four is underway and Hatton JUST has the edge….. Dunn’s not out of this one just yet.

    Hatton is an aggressive fighter and doesn’t want to give his opponent any time or space.

    Dunn tries to back Hatton up against the ropes, but the latter lands some heavy body shots.

    “Good shot!” says Hatton’s corner.

  • Joshua Mbu

    HATTON VS DUNN – ROUND ONE

    Dunn is yet to register a professional win and Hatton knows him well.

    Hatton made his professional debut in Gibraltar not long ago, he won, but he was rushing things.

    Should be a good fight, four rounds of boxing.

  • Joshua Mbu

    CHISORA WATCHES ON

    Chisora watches on!

    Hatton vs Dunn is up next and then it's onto Taylor vs Jonas!

  • Joshua Mbu

    EUBANK JR VS MORRISON – EUBANK JR WINS

    98-92 for ALL the judges!

    Eubank jr won this one comfortably, but Morrison levelled up tonight too.

    Eubank Jr said: “I felt good. I boxed.

    “I had him hurt bad in the second round and could have ended the fight there.

    “I listened to my new coach [Roy Jones Jr’s] instructions and decided to box.”

    EUBANK JR VS MORRISON – ROUND TEN

    Tenth and final round!

    Eubank Jr hits Morrison with three straight jabs to start off the round on the front foot.

    Morrison does come back with a strong showing, but it doesn’t look like it’ll be enough to stop a Eubank Jr win.

  • Joshua Mbu

    EUBANK JR VS MORRISON – ROUND EIGHT

    A rather slow round eight, but Eubank Jr remains in control of the fight.

    Morrison is getting some joy with some counter punches, catching Eubank Jr.

    Two round left in the fight….. someone needs to go for it!

  • Joshua Mbu

    NOT LONG TO GO

    Katie Taylor and Tasha Jonas isn't far away! But just before them is Campbell Hatton vs Levi Dunn.

    EUBANK JR VS MORRISON – ROUND FOUR

    Morrison does well to slow the pace of the fight down, that’s what he’s looking to do.

    But Eubank Jr is adamant that’s not the way he wants to fight!

    Just before the end of the round, Morrison catches Eubank Jr with body shot and a jab.

  • Joshua Mbu

    EUBANK JR VS MORRISON – ROUND TWO

    Very strong start to round two by Eubank Jr!

    Eubank Jr traps Morrison on the ropes and unloads on his opponent, but Morrison shows some good defence. 

    I think Eubank Jr’s good start to round two has shocked Morrison into life! Much needed.

  • Joshua Mbu

    EUBANK JR VS MORRISON

    Here we go!

    Marcus “Sweet MNM” Morrison makes his ring-walk in his hometown of Manchester!

    The 28-year-old has won 23 of 26 professional fights, losing the other three.

    But 16 of the 23 wins have come by knockout.

    Chris Eubank Jr makes his ring-walk – the returning Brit has his sights set on IBF middleweight champion Gennadiy Golovkin.

    But Morrison stands in his way.

    Eubank Jr only has two losses on his record……… this is going to be a HUGE fight! 

    “Fresh out of the Gulag”.

    Campbell Hatton vs Levi Dunn follows……. and then it's onto the big one! Taylor vs Jonas.

  • Joshua Mbu

    BIVOL VS RICHARDS – BIVOL WINS

    Dmitry Bivol has beaten Craig Richards with a unanimous points win!

    118-110, 115-113, 115-114 the judges scored it.

    Bivol has been out of the ring for 18 months, but he brings home the win and retains the WBA Light-Heavyweight World Title.

    Up next is Chris Eubank Jr vs Marcus Morrison!

    TALE OF THE TAPE

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

  • Alex Terrell

    '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."
