Katie Taylor is performing at a very high level and she has developed a great deal since turning pro although she did struggle with her last opponent Delfine Persoon. Katie is becoming a very, very experienced boxer and it will take someone truly elite and special to beat her. Linardatou has a record of 12-1 and she is a World Champion. The best thing Linardatou has going for her in this fight is her size.
Linardatou is strong and able but her technique level, not quite at the level it needs to be when she is facing someone like Katie Taylor. She will not win a single round in this contest.
