Taylor excited by return to ring

Olympic women's gold medallist Katie Taylor is excited by the prospect of returning to action in the ring in February.

The 26-year-old from Bray in County Wicklow has opted to remain as an amateur and the bill is being promoted as the Road to Rio.

Organisers say she will have a top-class international opponent.

Taylor's fight is to take place at the Bord Gáis Energy Theatre in Dublin on 24 February.
