Katie Taylor will fight Poland's Karina Kopinska in her professional debut at Wembley's SSE Arena on November 26.

Taylor, 30, recently agreed promotional terms with Matchroom after concluding the amateur career that made her Ireland's most decorated fighter. They are to fight at super-featherweight.

Kopinska, 27, has won seven and drawn three of her 24 fights.

She also has the experience of having fought WBC super-featherweight champion Eva Wahlstrom of Finland, and in London at York Hall in February 2014.
