The Irish Amateur Boxing Association hopes to confirm in the near future that they will host the Women’s European Boxing Championships in October, with Ireland reportedly the sole bidder to stage the competition.
An announcement was due in November but has been postponed due to internal movements within the European Boxing Confederation.
This would lead to Taylor, who won gold in the women’s lightweight classification at London 2012, competing in front of a home crowd in a potentially-lucrative box-office environment.
Taylor is a five-time European champion and will be a heavy favourite to make it six, whether the event is awarded to Ireland or not.
The 26-year-old was recently named Sports Star of the Year by the Irish Independent during a ceremony held at Dublin’s Westbury Hotel and is back in full training ahead of her next fight in February.
Taylor also confirmed her desire to represent Ireland once again when the Olympics reach Rio in 2016, saying: “I’m still only 26 and I feel I have things to prove and things to achieve in the sport.
“I’m busy getting ready for the fight and it’s great to get back into training again properly.”
