Boxing | Taylor vows to "outbox and outright" Gutierrez

Katie Taylor has vowed to "outbox and outfight" Miriam Gutierrez in her world lightweight title defence on Saturday.

Taylor, 34, will defend her belts against WBO mandatory challenger Gutierrez on Fight Night at the SSE Arena in Wembley.

The fight, which will be available to stream for free on Sky Sports Arena, YouTube, Facebook and, is one of three women's world title bouts at the London venue.

2012 Olympic gold medalist Taylor - who has won all 16 of her professional fights - says people have yet to see the best of her.

"I never get sick of looking at all the belts - it's something I've worked extremely hard for," the Bray boxer told Sky Sports.

"The journey has definitely been more exciting that I could have expected.

"One punch can change a fight in professional boxing. She is an unbeaten fighter and better than people expect.

"Hopefully I will do a bit of everything - outbox her and outfight her.

"There are no easy fights at this stage. This is a huge opportunity for her.

"Complacency is very, very dangerous. I'm ready for whatever comes my way. People haven't seen the best of me.

"Every belt is on the line. She has a lot to fight for. But this is the position I've always wanted to be in, defending my titles.

"I'm prepared to walk away the undisputed champion."

Gutierrez (13-0) is a 37-year-old Spaniard who beat Keren Batiz last year to win the interim WBA belt.

Terri Harper will also defend her WBC super-featherweight title against mandatory challenger Katharina Thanderz on the same card, while Rachel Ball will also fight reigning IBF super-flyweight champion Jorgelina Guanini for the vacant WBA bantamweight title.
