Katie Taylor will face Karina Kopinska on her professional debut Wembley's SSE Arena in London on Saturday 26 November.

Taylor makes her much anticipated bow in the paid ranks following a glittering career as Ireland’s most decorated amateur boxer.

The Bray boxer's 15-year career saw her claim five world titles, six European titles and Olympic gold at the London 2012 games, where she was the nation’s flagbearer.

However, Taylor fell at the first hurdle in her defence of her Olympic title at Rio 2016 as Finnish veteran Mira Potkonen prevailed on a split decision at the quarter-finals stage.   

The 30-year-old will face a testing start to her professional career against the experienced Kopinska. 

The 27-year-old Polish fighter has already fought in 25 professional bouts, and recently went the distance with WBC super-featherweight champion Eva Wahlstrom before eventually losing on points.

Taylor will be looking to kick-off with a commanding win as she then heads to the Manchester Arena on 10 December to fight on the undercard of the IBF world heavyweight title defence of fellow Olympic gold medal star Anthony Joshua.
