Taylor Seeking An Active 2024

A lot is expected of Omarah Taylor, and after a confident debut, she will look to gain her second win in the paid ranks on BCB Promotions ‘Powar Moves’ at the Bescot Stadium in Walsall on April 26th.

The 30-year-old from Birmingham has decided to drop down to welterweight after previously boxing in the division above and has been making some new additions to her team to add to experienced coach Jobi Clayton.

“I’m glad to have a fight date and be back out again. It has come a bit later than I maybe would have wanted, but that was out of my control, and now I am focused on April 26th and have been training hard.

“Part of growing is knowing you need to build the right people around you to support the work I am doing with Jobi. I have brought a new strength and conditioning coach on board as well as a sports masseuse, and I think I can be strong at welterweight.

A former Team GB amateur, Taylor made her professional debut in December, sharing six rounds with Ester Konecna at the Eastside Rooms in Birmingham. The thirty-fight veteran from the Czech Republic did manage to take a round on Kevin Parker’s card but was soundly beaten 59-55.

“It was a good six rounds against an experienced opponent; after the first, I realised this wasn’t going to be a case of an easy knockout, and you have to focus on being switched on all the time. After twenty-five amateur fights with head guards and bigger gloves, you have to get used to the differences as a professional going through things like the day before weigh-ins, but I handled it well.”

The headline bout that night saw Sian O’Toole pick up the Midlands Area Featherweight Title in just her third fight, and with opportunities in the woman’s game often coming quick, Taylor knows she could be in for some big night’s this year.

“I won’t lie, I am in a hurry and want an active year, moving up to an eight-rounder soon and getting in another two to three fights in 2024. At my age and with the sparring experience I have gained, I know I can push myself when the time comes.

Tickets for ‘Powar Moves’ are now available, priced at £40 standard and £80 Ringside VIP, from the boxers directly or by emailing info@bcb-promotions.com.
