Boxer Terri Harper calls Katie Taylor her 'Queen' and says she wants to fight her

WBC super featherweight champion Terri Harper has said that she wants to fight Irish boxer Katie Taylor.

Harper has said she wants to fight the best in the world and for her that's Taylor.

“To me Katie is the Queen. In my opinion she’s the best out there. A few more learning fights for me first, build myself up and then I will probably want to fight the best out there, and that’s Katie,” she told The Telegraph.

Harper won her super featherweight title earlier this month after she beat Eva Wahlstrom by unanimous decision. 

After winning her title, Harper and her fiancee Jenna Hayden flew to Gran Canaria to celebrate. However, she has said she can't relax too much as she expects to fight again in April.

“We booked this getaway quite close to the fight so I flew out with all my black eyes. I’ve had a good week. I’ve been relaxing, but training too. I’ve had strict orders not to put much weight on.  

“I believe I’ll be fighting in April, May time. That’s my problem, as soon as I stop, the weight goes straight back on, but I’m staying on it and staying professional.”
