Meath East TD, and Minister for Sport, Thomas Byrne, has dampened speculation that Katie Taylors dream Croke Park fight with Chantelle Cameron will go ahead this May.
Byrne revealed that nobody from Matchroom boxing, who promote Taylor, has yet spoken to his department regarding the bout, and that Taylors management company last spoke to them over a year ago.
Sean McGoldrick, on the independent.ie website quotes Byrne as saying,
“Nobody talked to us about it. You see this all the time. We’ve said this consistently on this issue and on other issues as well, if they come to us with a proposal, we’ll absolutely look at every proposal fairly, and I’ve said that.”
