BOXING

Katie Taylor’s fourth professional opponent has been revealed.

The 2012 Olympic gold medallist will face the Bulgarian, Milena Koleva in Manchester on Saturday night.

The bout will be on the undercard to Anthony Crolla’s meeting with Jorge Linares.

Koleva is a veteran of 17 fights, with her last outing a losing attempt at winning the IBF World featherweight title in Paris.

ATHLETICS

The Paris bid team has reportedly told the International Olympic Committee they will only host a Games in 2024 – not four years later.

IOC president Thomas Bach said last week he wanted to change the rules so whoever lost out of Los Angeles and Paris, would be given the 2028 Olympics.

But at a meeting today, a spokesman for Paris’s bid is quoted as saying “2024 is now or never.”
