Katie Taylor to fight Viviane Obenauf in Manchester
by Michael O'Neill
November 28, 2016

(NOV 28)  Following upon Saturday’s night’s demolition of Poland’s Karina Kopinska, Bray’s Katie Taylor is set for her 2nd Pro bout on the Anthony Joshua undercard at the Manchester Arena on 10th December and live on Sky Sports Box Office. 

Her opponent will be Brazilian Viviane Obenauf, who is based in Switzerland.

The Brazilian has had 10 bouts winning 6 (4k.o’s) with 1 loss. Interestingly the visit to Manchester will be the first time she has boxed outside of Switzerland. Like Taylor, she is aged 30.

Viviane was born on 25.10.1986 in Rio de Janeiro and grew up in Juiz de Fora with her two siblings.

Her sporting talent was obvious at a young age. At the age of 12, she played football enthusiastically and was a passionate runner. Among other things, she was part of the Olympic gymnastics team.

At the age of 18 she took up boxing but in the meantime, she finished her matriculation. After a year at university, Viviane went to work. She worked in hotels as a Receptionist and as a secretary. In 2013, she also passed the Swiss expert examination in Basel and has since then worked in gastronomy.

In August 2016 Viviane opened her own gym. The Fitboxen Obenauf in Interlaken.She became Swiss amateur champion in 2012 (the year that Taylor struck Gold in London 2012) but after a brief period representing Austria, she turned Pro in 2013.

Obenauf enters the bout having beaten Kopinska in her last clash in October in Switzerland, and the 30 year old promises to provide a stiff examination of Taylor’s credentials at World title level having taken on recently crowned Featherweight World champion Vissia Trovato last November – the only loss on her 9-1 record.

Her hobbies include, good food, fast cars, swimming and skiing. Spending quality time with her young son Calvin is important and gives her strength and the necessary balance in everyday life.

Katie Taylor is very much looking forward to the bout. “Saturday in London was an amazing experience and I can’t wait to fight in Manchester on December 10,” said Taylor. “No performance is ever perfect, but I’ve been working hard with Ross (Enamait) in the States and I think things are really coming together.

“Boxing in front of 21,000 is a new experience for me, and I’m looking forward to the next step of the journey and hoping to entertain the fans at the Manchester Arena and watching live on Sky Sports Box Office.”

Taylor’s second pro fight against Obenauf is part of a huge night of action in Manchester as Anthony Joshua MBE defends his IBF World Heavyweight title against Eric Molina.

Dillian Whyte faces bitter London rival Dereck Chisora in an official eliminator for the WBC Heavyweight title and fellow Heavyweights Luis Ortiz and Dave Allen also clash.

Kal Yafai can become Birmingham’s first World champion but the unbeaten 27 year old faces a tough task to rip the WBA Super-Flyweight title against Luis Concepcion, the two-weight World champion that will enter the ring in his 11th World title outing.

Scott Quigg returns to action against Jose Cayetano for the vacant WBA International Featherweight title, Callum Smith defends his British Super-Middleweight title against Luke Blackledge and Hosea Burton will defend his British Light-Heavyweight title against Frank Buglioni.
