Katie Taylor’s 3Arena rematch with Chantelle Cameron is set to draw another sellout crowd to Dublin’s Docklands on Saturday night, promoters have confirmed.

The pair convened in Dublin for the sequel’s press conference back in September where Matchroom UK promoter Eddie Hearn claimed Taylor’s career was “on the line” facing into the rematch.

Hearn went on to add that demand for tickets for the rematch had trumped that of the fight night last May and predicted an “instant sellout”.
