Katie Taylor is just one more victory away from that first world title shot she has craved so much since turning professional.
The vacant WBA Intercontinental Lightweight belt will be up for grabs when the Bray boxer takes on Germany's Nina Meinke at the end of the month.
The winner will then be given the chance to take on Uruguay's Cecilia Comunales for her WBA world lightweight title.
"Meinke is a step up for me but I want to test myself against the very best opposition available because it's fights like these that are going to elevate the sport," Taylor told Sky Sports today.
"She's won a title already and has an unbeaten record too, but it's a challenge I'm relishing. As an amateur I only ever wanted to test myself against the very best and that's exactly what I want to do in the pro ranks as well."
23-year-old Meinke, like Taylor (4-0), is undefeated having fought one more pro bout and will face the Irish Olympic gold medalist on the undercard of the Anthony Joshua-Wladimir Klitschko bout on April 29.
90,000 fight fans are expected to fill Wembley Stadium to see the two men clash for the IBF, IBO and WBA Super Heavyweight straps, representing a great chance for Taylor to gain more exposure.
Taylor's promoter Eddie Hearn was keen to emphasise the fact that this is a step-up to "another level" and has thrown the gauntlet down to his fighter.
"In just four fights, Katie has established herself as the most exciting female fighter on the planet but now we get the chance to see if she is ready for the world stage."
