Katie Taylor Preview – Taylor to remain undefeated

Back on June 1st last year in Madison Square Gardens, Katie Tayler stepped into the ring to defend her WBA, IBF and WBO lightweight titles against Delfine Persoon.

The fight went the distance, but it was Taylor who got the majority decision on the night.

However, it was a decision in such a big unification fight that didn’t sit well with a lot of the media.

There were plenty who thought that Persoon had done enough to win.

Excitingly there is a bit of needle between Taylor and the Belgian, so we can expect a good scrap.

Following that win over Persoon, Taylor faced Greece’s Christina Linardatour in November last year to win the WBO junior welterweight title.

Our betting prediction:
Persoon on Points

Bet at Boylesports

(odds taken 2000 GMT, Wednesday 8 January)


From an objective point of view, the first fight between these two was tight.

Taylor is going to have to be on her toes again and we are fully expecting this to go the distance again between them.

So do the bookmakers as there is only 1/4 available on the fight going the distance on the night* (odds taken 2000 GMT, Wednesday 8 January)

34-year-old Taylor is now on a 15-0 career record.


Delfine Persoon Preview – Revenge on Persoon’s mind

After the decision went against her in that unification fight against Taylor, Persoon was incensed.

She even appealed against the result because she thought that she had done enough to win.

There are some claims there, she gave as good as she got and she sucked Taylor into a real scrap.

It was so passionate between them that the crowd at the Madison Square Gardens were on their feet for most of it.

Persoon is naturally going to be chomping at the bit to prove a point that she should have won that first fight.

That makes her dangerous.

Delfine Persoon has stacks of experience with a 44-2 career record under her belt.

18 of her 44 wins have been by knockout, so we are not expecting her to deliver a hammer blow.

But for some punters, Persoon on Points at 4/1 could be a really tempting proposition* (odds taken 2000 GMT, Wednesday 8 January) in Round Betting.

Notably, in that first match it was Persoon who looked to have more stamina towards the end of the fight.

She has fought once since then, beating Helen Joseph in November last year by a unanimous decision to claim the WBA interim super-featherweight title.


Katie Taylor vs Delfine Persoon Betting Advice

What a mouth-watering rematch this is. These two are both on top of their respective games at the moment and there’s no love lost here.

Hopefully, we get somewhere near to the levels of excitement that was experienced when they met in New York.

The fight should go the distance, but who wins it?


Key Facts – Katie Taylor vs Delfine Persoon Betting Tip

  • Katie Taylor is undefeated in her career
  • Katie Taylor beat Persoon in a 2019 Unification fight
  • Delfine Persoon’s only defeat since 2010 was against Taylor


The safe option we feel is Taylor on Points at 1/2* (odds taken 2000 GMT, Wednesday 8 January).

The simple fact is that we should see a far better mindset from her, a more controlled approach.

She was uncharacteristically drawn into an open fight as Persoon lured control away from her.

We would expect Taylor to come in with a much more disciplined approach and if she does, she gets it.
