Katie Taylor faces Christina Linardatou for WBO super-lightweight belt

Katie Taylor’s press conference with Christina Linardatou was disrupted by a row about a rematch clause ahead of the WBO super-lightweight fight.

The Irish star is stepping up a division to challenge WBO champion Linardatou at Manchester Arena on November 2, live on Sky Sports, but the Greek fighter’s team were quick to voice their anger about not being offered an immediate return bout if the titleholder suffers defeat.

Linardatou’s manager Brian Cohen suggested that Taylor’s contract included a rematch and demanded to know why his fighter did not receive the same terms.
