The 30-year-old lightweight from Ireland impressed on her professional debut on Saturday when stopping Karina Kopinska in three rounds, and progresses to an opponent who has a more convincing 9-1 record.

Obenauf has also beaten Kopinska.

Their match-up will feature on the undercard of the higher-profile IBF heavyweight title fight between Anthony Joshua and Eric Molina.

"Saturday in London was an amazing experience and I can't wait to fight in Manchester on December 10," said Taylor. "Boxing in front of 21,000 is a new experience for me."
