Katie Taylor is determined to make the first defence of her WBA lightweight title so she can ensure a "big 2018" and pursue her ambition of unifying the division.
The 31-year-old meets America's Jessica McCaskill at London's York Hall, having won her first professional title in October on the undercard of Anthony Joshua's defeat of Carlos Takam.
She also tops a professional bill for the first time in her eighth fight, following a decorated amateur career, and told reporters at a London press conference: "My dream is to unify the division.
"I'm not looking past Wednesday, my aim is to win to set me up nicely for a big, big year in 2018.
"I didn't think it was going to happen this quickly that I would headline a card.
"This is the sort of platform I've always wanted where I headline my own show. It's such a wonderful card to be boxing on in such an historic venue. I really can't wait."
McCaskill, 33 and from Chicago, regardless insists she has discovered "mistakes" in the highly-respected champion's make-up.
"A lot of the good things you see about Katie Taylor are in highlights," she said. "If you watch the actual fight there is a lot of mistakes.
"There are opportunities there and I intend on taking advantage of that."
