Katie Taylor v Firuza Sharipova Boxing Betting Tips & Predictions
Ireland’s Katie Taylor has proven time and time again that she is a fighting champion. She will take centre stage in Liverpool on December 11 when she defends her WBA, WBC, IBF, WBO and The Ring female lightweight titles for the fifth time.
Taylor is undefeated as a professional fighter. Since turning pro after the Olympic Games in Brazil in 2016, she has won all 19 fights with six by knockout and 13 on points.
The 35-year-old is a clear fan favourite, but a number of her supporters feel she is being protected and on the odd occasion got the decision in her favour when she probably didn’t deserve it.
Taylor was pushed all the way against Delfine Persoon in 2019 – with many thinking the Irishwoman lost the fight. And on another day, Christine Linardatou, Miriam Gutierrez and Natasha Jonas could have had their arms raised.
She comes into this fight on the back of another points win against Jennifer Han back in September. It is a quick turnaround for Taylor, but she always wants to fight.
She takes on Sharipova who has 15 professional fights under her belt. She has won 14 of them with one defeat – that was against Sofya Ochigava in her first pro fight.
Sharipova has eight victories by knockout on her resume, including four of her last five fights. Her last bout was back in her homeland on September 12 when she stopped Russia’s Liubov Beliakova inside two rounds.
Taylor might get the benefit of the doubt in some fights, but I cannot see her needing any help in this one. KT is not a knockout merchant, she is more methodical than that. I expect her to control this fight from start to finish and get her arm raised after the 10 rounds on points.

Katie Taylor v Firuza Sharipova Boxing Betting Tips & Predictions: Fighter’s Predictions
Firuza Sharipova: “On December 11 in Liverpool I will meet Katie Taylor for the title of world champion in the WBC, WBA, WBO, IBF and The Ring! We went to this with my team a long time ago, we talked. Many of us did not believe, we were beaten and slandered, and you do not even imagine that some sticks were put on the wheel by some Kazakh officials. They gave us an assignment to help us, but they did it completely backwards. At the beginning of the year, money was allocated for the preparation for this fight, but they did not reach me. I will reveal the details a little later. I will do everything possible to become the absolute champion of the world. Not a single professional boxer from Kazakhstan and Central Asia has boxed for five major titles. After a month I will be able to realise my dream of all my life and raise the flag of Kazakhstan as high as anyone else!”
