KATIE TAYLOR knows complacency is the biggest threat to her incredible boxing career.
Ireland’s Olympic and two-weight world champion defends her lightweight belts against unknown contender Miriam Gutierrez at Wembley Arena.
Taylor’s last three fights have been two sensational battles with long-reigning champion Delfine Persoon, either side of a leap up to grab a super-lightweight title too.
But 34-year-old Taylor knows she cannot take her eye off the ball against Spain’s Gutierrez, 37, who has nothing to lose.
The County Wicklow icon said: “I never get sick of looking at all the belts — it’s something I’ve worked extremely hard for.
“The journey has definitely been more exciting than I could have expected. One punch can change a fight in professional boxing.
“She is an unbeaten fighter and better than people expect.
“Hopefully I will do a bit of everything — outbox her and outfight her.
“There are no easy fights at this stage. This is a huge opportunity for her.
“Complacency is very, very dangerous. I’m ready for whatever comes my way. People haven’t seen the best of me.”
