Katie Taylor v Jennifer Han Boxing Betting Tips & Predictions

I have no problem in saying that Katie Taylor has ridden her luck on a number of occasions during his unbeaten run of 18 successive victories.

I am not sure if she lost any of the fights, but she was pushed extremely hard by Natasha Jonas and Delfine Persoon, while Christina Lindardatou had relative success against the Irish woman.

Taylor had her raised in all of those fights and being honest, I cannot see her being in much trouble against American Jennifer Han.

Han has won her last eight professional bouts, with her last win being a unanimous eight-round decision over fellow countrywoman Jeri Sitzes in February 2020.

The American has been the IBF featherweight champion since beating Helen Joseph in Texas back in September 2015.

The 38-year-old is a talented fighter, but she has not been in the ring with anyone as dangerous as Taylor before. She will give it her best, but like many before, her best will not be good enough.

I have gone for Taylor winning this on points. I haven’t gone for that decision because I don’t think Taylor can knock her out – I think she can. I just feel two-minute rounds are not long enough for Taylor to get in enough rhythm. That is why 12 of her 18 wins have come on points.

Taylor will do enough in each round to win this unanimously, but I think Han will hang around until the final bell.

Katie Taylor v Jennifer Han Boxing Betting Tips & Predictions: Fighter’s Predictions

Katie Taylor: “I’m expecting the toughest fight from Jennifer. She has a lot of amateur experience and she’s a very technical fighter. She was my (mandatory challenger) as well, so I had to take the fight. These girls have stepped up, they’ve boxed beyond themselves, they have raised their game against me. I’m expecting a very, very tough fight and I’m going to be prepared like I have been for every single fight I’ve had over the last few years. She is a fighter that believes in herself. This fight is going to bring the best out of the both of us. I love the fact that she’s stepping into the ring confident, like I am, as well. I don’t really take much notice of what other fighters say, I just focus on my own performance and my own preparation. We’re going to be stepping into the ring 100% prepared. The only words that matter are, ‘And still.’ Training is going well. I feel good and sharp. I can’t wait to step in again and get another great victory.”

Jennifer Han: “I’ve been a road warrior, I know how it is, the odds are stacked against me, she’s the hometown girl – I get it. When I went to Korea, I felt I dominated the fight and the decision was taken away from me, so this time I have to not only dominate but be in command of every single round or go for the KO. This is huge, it’s the biggest fight of my life and you can’t get bigger than Katie Taylor. I’m going to be fighting for all her belts, this is the greatest opportunity that God has blessed me with, I’ve worked my whole life for this, and I am ready. I hope she underestimates me and takes into consideration all the things that are stacked up against me. I hope she hasn’t trained hard; she’s taken me for granted, that’d be sweeter for me. I was hoping to just be on TV and become a two-weight World Champion, but this is the biggest platform possible for me. I’m not going to take anything away from her, but she’s beatable. Believe me, my camp and I are studying her inside and out. We have plenty of strategies.”
