Welterweight contender Conor Benn and undisputed lightweight champion Katie Taylor will co-headline a Matchroom Boxing card at the M&S Bank Arena in Liverpool on December 11.

“I’m so excited to fight in Liverpool again after fighting at the arena back in 2018,” said Benn (19-0, 12 KOs). “I was in Liverpool earlier this month for the Liam Smith vs. Anthony Fowler show and the atmosphere was absolutely incredible. I’m expecting another banged out crowd and top atmosphere on December 11 as I look to end 2021 with a bang.”

Irish star Taylor (19-0, 6 KOs), who will defend her WBC, WBO, WBA and IBF 135lbs crowns, added: “I had less than a week at home after my last fight and then it was back to the US to start training again because I wanted to get another fight as soon as possible. I’m looking forward to finishing the year on a high in Liverpool with a big performance and another successful defence of my titles.”

Benn and Taylor’s opposition will be announced in due course.
