Jonas reveals 'the plan' for a Taylor rematch


Natasha Jonas could attempt to enforce a Katie Taylor rematch after fulfilling her own world title ambitions in a big unification clash with Hannah Rankin.

The Liverpudlian was narrowly edged out on points by Taylor in their first fight in May 2021, but Jonas has since become the WBO super-welterweight champion following a second-round stoppage of Chris Namus in February.

Taylor's sensational career hit new heights last weekend after a thrilling split decision win over Amanda Serrano and Jonas still hopes to force her way back into the Irish star's future plans.

It's no secret that I'll never make super-feather again, so that division is out the window," Jonas said.

"With potentially another rematch between Taylor and Serrano, Chantelle Cameron is now fighting, [Jessica] McCaskill is now fighting, so it makes sense to stay at this division and see what the outcomes of all those fights are, before going back down a weight.

"I would love a rematch with Katie [Taylor]. I think a lot of people did say they would love to see it again. It's not impossible, I just have to put myself in a position to be mandatory and that was kind of the plan all along."
