Katie Taylor's next bout will be in England on November 2nd, where she's set to top the bill. 

Promoter Eddie Hearn has confirmed that the undisputed world lightweight champion will headline a card, with the venue likely to be London's York Hall.

He's also suggested that the Bray fighter will soon move up in weight to chase world titles at super-lightweight.

Taylor looks set to have a busy 2020 with a bout against the winner of next week's clash of Amanda Serranno and Heather Hardy also on the horizon.

"Both Serrano and Hardy have signed to fight Katie Taylor if they win," Hearn told Sky Sports ahead of the rematch between Andy Ruiz and Anthony Joshua.

"That is definitely a fight we are looking at in early 2020 as well so we have to see."

The promoter also revealed that a rematch with former lightweight world champion Delphine Persoon is also a possibility.

"I think that is coming. She wants that rematch. I've spoken to Persoon's team. There could be a move up in weight for the next one to challenge the world champion at 140.

"She's got to fight Persoon and at some point her mandatory of the WBA, WBC and IBF. She has to go through all those eventually."
