Hello and welcome

Hello and welcome to a huge night of women’s boxing from Wembley Arena!

We have a world title triple header which promises to explode - even if it is behind closed doors.

Britain’s Rachel Ball will challenge for the WBA super-bantamweight title as she takes on super-flyweight world champion Jorgelina Guanini in the first of our three huge female fights this evening.

We then move on to fellow Brit Terri Harper as she defends her WBC and IBO super-featherweight titles against Katharina Thanderz.

And then we finish with the big one. Irish superstar Katie Taylor defends her undisputed lightweight crown against undefeated mandatory challenger Miriam Gutierrez.

Keep up to date with all the live action right here!

Kash Farooq impressing

In one of the early fights on the card, Kash Farooq is impressing here against Angel Aviles. Has won every one of the first three rounds in some style. Can’t see this going the ten-round distance.

Three home wins tonight?

Ball, Harper and Taylor are the home Matchroom fighters tonight and all go in as the favourites in their respective fights.

But can they come away with the victories? Could it be a British and Irish success story this evening?

Farooq bossing things

Farooq continues to give Aviles an absolute pasting here. He has won all seven rounds so far and looks in no danger of letting up. A one-sided beat down that really should be stopped soon.

Brook v Crawford

Worth mentioning that after this blockbuster triple header tonight that Britain’s Kell Brook is daring to be great in Las Vegas as she challenges for the WBO welterweight title against pound-four-pound star Terence Crawford. Well worth staying up for or getting up for!

I will be watching but shall not be live blogging well into the night! You’ll have to tune in to Premier Sports for that one!

Farooq wins comfortably on points

Kash Farooq wins 100-90, 100-91, 99-91 on the judges scorecards. Impressive performance and his promoter thought so too.

Katie Taylor in the building

The star is here…

Docherty v Cullen next up

In the final fight before our three world title bouts, undefeated John Docherty steps up the levels to take on Jack Cullen.

Docherty is being touted by many as a future super-middleweight world champion and will be expected to see off Cullen here, who fought to a draw with Zac Chelli back in August.

But can The Doc deliver tonight?

Three world title fights coverage

Worth mentioning that I will bring you round-by-round coverage of the three women’s world title fights. Before that though, for Docherty-Chelli, you will have to settle for sporadic updates.

Cullen down in the first!

Well, I said I wouldn’t be doing round-by-round for this fight but that was some start from Docherty!

The pre-fight favourite wastes no time as he drops Cullen inside the first minute of the fight with a close range left hook. Cullen was quickly back to his feet but that is not the ideal start.
