Katie Taylor's fourth opponent of her professional career has been revealed.

The 2012 Olympic gold medallist will face the Bulgarian fighter Milena Koleva in Manchester on Saturday night.

The bout will be on the undercard to British boxer Anthony Crolla's meeting with Venezuelan Jorge Linares.

Koleva is a veteran of 17 fights, with her last outing a losing attempt at winning the IBF World featherweight title in Paris against Maiva Hamadouche back in January.

The 28 year old Bulgarian has lost seven her 17 fights since 2008, winning nine times and drawing once in 2011.

She had been due to fight Taylor in the Irish fighter's third pro fight but had to pull out beforehand due to a chest infection.

Instead, Taylor won her third fight since turning pro on the night of March 4th as she comprehensively defeated Italy's Monica Gentili with a fifth round stoppage at the O2 Arena in London.

That followed up previous victories over Karina Kopinska of Poland and Brazil's Viviane Obenauf.

The Bray native is also due to fight again on April 29th at Wembley on the undercard of Anthony Joshua and Wladimir Klitschko heavyweight contest.
