Tevin Farmer vs Jono Carroll and Katie Taylor vs Rose Volante top the bill of a jampacked night of boxing in Philadelphia this evening.

Farmer is seeking to defend his IBF super-featherweight world championship against unbeaten Dubliner Carroll in what promises to be a lively contest.

Farmer, defending his title in his hometown, has resurrected his career after four losses in his first 12 fights and wants to unify at 130lb by taking on the best, such as Gervonta Davis.

“Everybody is talking about who the best is in the division - there's only one way to tell,” said Farmer.

“I am ready to fight anyone. It's my third defense in five months, I'm the most active male World champion in the world and I want it to continue like that.”

Taylor meanwhile, is taking on fellow undefeated boxer Volante in perhaps the toughest bout of her career so far.

On the line alongside her WBA and IBF straps is the Brazilian’s WBO title, and Taylor was complimentary of her challenger, saying: “Rose is a great champion. She's strong and has a big right hand, she's undefeated too so she's a proud fighter and she's chasing the same prize as me.”

As both headline-worthy clashes edge closer, here’s all you need to know before the bell rings.
