Taylor v Persoon bout falls through according to report

It looks like Katie Taylor's proposed rematch with Delfine Persoon is off due to a contract issue.

The Irish Independent is reporting that the bout is off, with Persoon's partner and trainer Filiep Tamper saying that the fight has fallen through due to difficulties in dealing with promoter Eddie Hearn.

The pair were due to rematch on August 22nd, over a year on from Taylor's narrow win over the Belgian in Madison Square Garden.
