The return of WBA lightweight champion Katie Taylor is being pushed back, from Dublin to the United States, according to The42.
Less than two weeks ago, Taylor was being lined up for a hometown world title defense in Dublin, Ireland.
But now it appears that Taylor will see action on April 28 at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York - as part of the undercard to Daniel Jacobs' next fight on HBO.
Eddie Hearn promotes both Jacobs and Taylor.
Last week, he mentioned to IFL TV that Taylor would fight in Dublin on April 14, but now those plans have been put on the shelf for the moment.
Hearn has been making a big push into the American market, with Jacobs being his first big signing.
The British promoter made his Matchroom USA debut last year, when Jacobs topped an HBO televised card from Long Island, New York and dominated Luis Arias over twelve rounds of action.
Hearn's new United States venture appears to have a solid working relationship now with HBO, despite Matchroom's biggest star, Anthony Joshua, fighting for rival network Showtime.
As BoxingScene.com previously reported, Irish middleweight Gary ‘Spike’ O’Sullivan is a frontrunner to face Jacobs in the main event. At the moment the two sides are trying to work out the financial details as they are not on the same page with the monetary terms.
The42 names several potential opponents for Taylor - including IBF lightweight champion Victoria Bustos of Argentina, WBO champ Rose Volante of Brazil and even Heather ‘The Heat’ Hardy.
The fight would be Taylor's second jump at the Barclays. He fought at the venue in July of last year, when she stopped the unheralded Jasmine Clarkson.
In her last fight, Taylor (8-0, 4 KOs) had a very tough outing in winning a ten round unanimous decision over Jessica McCaskill at York Hall in London.
