Ed Sheeran spotted ringside ahead of Katie Taylor’s 3Arena fight

Ed Sheeran has been spotted ringside at the 3Arena in Dublin ahead of Katie Taylor’s rematch with Chantelle Cameron.

The singer-songwriter was sitting next to Taylor’s promoter, Eddie Hearn, watching the earlier fights at the venue.

Meanwhile, UFC fighter Conor McGregor, who has faced criticism in recent days over his comments on the Dublin riots, has predicted a “landslide victory” for Taylor in the fight.

Taylor suffered the first defeat of her career by majority decision to Cameron in May. She will head into the ring in the unusual role of underdog in front of her home city fans.

But Taylor has taken heart from the belief that she did not perform to her best in the pair’s first meeting. She hopes subsequent improvements will be enough to inflict a first career defeat on Cameron.

“I don’t think I’ve ever been this motivated for a fight,” Taylor told DAZN. “I really just can’t wait to step in there and perform.

“I love my job and I love being involved in these big nights. I don’t mind being the underdog for this fight.

“I’ve obviously put the work in over the last few months, I’ve put my body in the trenches, and once I perform I think that’s going to be enough.”

The pair each weighed in just under the 140lbs light-welterweight limit on Friday.

The two rivals are due in the ring around 10.30pm.

That victory means Brennan is the new Celtic light heavyweight champion.
