Katie Taylor looks to move closer to immortality when she faces off against Natasha Jonas once again, putting her lightweight world titles on the line at the Manchester Arena.

The pair have history, with the Irish superstar emerging victorious at London 2012 on her way to Olympic glory, a stinging defeat for Jonas that she only recently watched back.

The pair will continue the surge in interest in women’s boxing as the chief support to Derek Chisora against Joseph Parker in what could turn into a heavyweight war.

Beyond the chief support and main event, there’s the intrigue of Chris Eubank Jr returning to the ring, with Marcus Morrison hoping to capitalise on any ring rust, while the fascinating journey of Campbell Hatton continues. But the Briton with the biggest challenge of the night is surely Craig Richards, who will look to rip the light heaavyweight world title off the undefeated Russian Dmitry Bivol.

We’ll have build-up to the heavyweights, round-by-round updates from Taylor vs Jonas and more undercard commentary and results from a big night of boxing at the Manchester Arena:

Taylor beats Jonas

“They’re not going to top that, are they?,” says Jonas before they go to the interviews. Over to you Chisora-Parker. I would NOT want to follow that chief support.

Round 10: The two fighters touch gloves and go to war for one final time. Saying that, we’d love a rematch of this.

A lovely left from Jonas beats the speed of Taylor who misses with another flurry. You get the sense both fighters feel it’s all on this final round as Jonas thunders in a right hand!

Body work from Jonas is good but a nice left from Taylor and it’s absolute fireworks!!

Wonderful combination from Taylor with 30 seconds left catches the eye.

And that’s it! We go to the scorecards.

Round 9: Jonas makes Taylor miss at the start of the ninth but doesn’t really offer much in response. A nice left to the body from the challenger and then a right to the head from Taylor!

Both are putting this all on the line in the latter stages as Jonas tries to corner Taylor and unload. They are clearly tired now, a lot of punches are on the gloves.

Yet another round that is very difficult to call. One to go.

Round 8: Taylor has the volume of punches but the quality is now coming more and more from Jonas. Question is, how are the judges scoring it?

A nice body shot and then to the head from Jonas but Taylor fires back with lovely shots on the inside.

Taylor vs Jonas

Round 7: Opening up now, both looking for the bigger shots, exchanging right hooks.

Jonas lands a superb left hand and the challenger is gaining confidence! Taylor a little quieter now as Jonas is relentlessly moving from body to head.

They lock horns, sitting on one another before Jonas’ trainer Joe Gallagher is told off by the referee for being too loud.

THIS IS BOXING. Superb stuff.

Round 6: Nice left hook from Taylor kicks Jonas into gear but again she is denied when coming forward by a smart clinch from Taylor.

Oooo Jonas comes back with a nice combination and Taylor is stunned a little, stopped in her tracks. Jonas then gets through with a jab followed by a right hand.

Round 5: Sharp punching from Taylor again 20 seconds into the fifth but then Jonas goes hunting the champion for the first time.

Jonas takes the centre of the ring and tries to march forward with her hands cuffed high on her head. Taylor fends her off with a clinch and then both exchange body shots on the inside.

Can’t take your eyes off it, but you feel there’s still another level to both fighters.

Taylor vs Jonas

Round 4: Beginning to hot up nicely as Jonas starts to show much more ambition after a cagey opening two rounds.

Taylor bouncing on her feet, always looking to close the gap. Jonas, by contrast, looks to step in and out of range but catches one down the pipe for her troubles.

A few bombs whistle past the head of Taylor and the Irish fighter responds with some nice, sharp jabs.

Almost certainly 3-1 Taylor after four.
