KATIE TAYLOR faces losing one of her world titles just days after becoming a two-weight undisputed champion.
Taylor overcame the odds be avenging her May loss to Chantelle Cameron with a redemption job in their rematch.
It saw the two-time Olympian rip all four super-lightweight titles from Cameron inside a raucous 3Arena in Dublin.
Taylor already came into the bout as the undisputed lightweight queen and now holds all the belts across the two divisions.
But that causes a problem with the WBO, who only allow champions to reign over one division with their belt at a single time.
And they warned she must choose whether to keep her 135lb or 140lb straps.

A statement read: “If Katie Taylor wins the bout against Cameron, she has up to 10 days thereafter to determine which weight division she will retain.
"Failure to comply with such conditions will result in the Committee proceeding per WBO Regulations of World Championship Contests.
“Consequently, in light of the foregoing, Katie Taylor must decide within the timeframe provided in the referenced provision which weight division she will retain, either the Lightweight or Jr. Welterweight division."
Taylor was hit with the same dilemma in 2019 when she beat Christina Linardatou for the 140lb title.

She later vacated the belt.
Promoter Eddie Hearn revealed Taylor's two likely next fights are a trilogy with Cameron, 32, or a rematch with Amanda Serrano.
Taylor, 37, beat Serrano, 35, in their 2022 thriller to retain her undisputed lightweight throne.
If the two are to rematch, the Irish legend would likely opt to keep her 135lb WBO title.
But with Hearn teasing a trilogy with Cameron at Ireland's 82,000-seater Croke Park, keeping the 140lb version seems more realistic.
