Natasha Jonas says she is ready for the fight of her life against Ireland's Katie Taylor on Monday.

Great Britain's Natasha Jonas has said that she is completely focused on the fight of her life after making the quarter-finals in the women's boxing.

Jonas squeezed past American Quanitta Underwood to become the first female boxer to win an Olympic bout for Team GB.

The 28-year-old will now face Irish world champion Katie Taylor, with a win guaranteeing the Liverpool native a medal.

Jonas said: "History and records are great but I'm here at the Olympics and I don't want to just make up the numbers.

"I believe Katie and I are two of the best boxers in the world at our weight and it's unfortunate that we have fight so early. She's the world champion but with a crowd like that I think I have every chance."

Jonas will need to improve on her 21-13 win over Underwood on Sunday if she wants to beat Taylor in an enticing quarter-final clash.
