This Saturday, the spotlight’s on Dublin’s 3Arena, where Chantelle Cameron puts her undisputed Super-Lightweight World Championship on the line against Ireland’s very own boxing legend, Katie Taylor. You can catch all the action live worldwide on DAZN.

Taylor has already cemented her legacy as one of the all-time greats. And now, Forged Irish Stout is paying a towering tribute to this Irish icon. They’ve unveiled a stunning 14-foot statue, dubbed “Katie The Redeemer,” overlooking the Wicklow coastline where Taylor’s journey kicked off.

Born in Bray, Taylor’s an international sensation, thanks to her string of World Championships and that shiny Olympic gold medal. Her sheer grit and talent have inspired millions worldwide.

This gargantuan homage comes just as Taylor gears up for her rematch against Cameron on November 25, where she’s aiming to settle the score from her first pro loss. The fight night also features Irish talents Gary Cully, Paddy Donovan, and Thomas Carty.

Eddie Hearn of Matchroom Sport is all praise for Taylor, calling her the greatest female fighter ever. He’s stoked for the fight, asking if Taylor will reclaim her throne or if Cameron will defend her title. Hearn invites everyone to tune in for this epic showdown on DAZN.

And hey, if you’re in Dublin, keep your eyes peeled for the “Katie The Redeemer” statue popping up around the city, including the 3Arena and Temple Bar.
