Katie Taylor's status as the hottest ticket in Irish sport was confirmed by the news of a second fight date for the Olympic champion in Dublin next spring.

Promoter Brian Peters revealed that tickets for the February 24 show at the 2,100-seater Bord Gais Energy Theatre "sold out in record time" and Taylor will now top another card at the same venue on Friday, March 22.

No opponents have yet been named for either contest, but the Bray boxer's appeal already seems to transcend her sport.

Adult tickets for the second show will be priced from €40, with children's tickets available from €25.

Peters commented: "Katie is delighted to add another Dublin date to her 'Road to Rio' tour and is very excited to get the opportunity to fight on her home turf as part of her preparations for the European Championships and, ultimately, Rio 2016."
