Eddie Hearn says Katie Taylor has received the respect and adulation of the boxing world ahead of her lightweight title fight with Victoria Noelia Bustos, live on Sky Sports.
Taylor will take on her Argentine opponent in the WBA and IBF unifier at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn in the early hours of Sunday morning.
