Last June at Madison Square Garden, Taylor became Ireland's first ever unified world champion with the IBF, WBO, WBA and WBC lightweight titles to her name after a majority decision win over the Belgian.
That was only half the story - after giving Taylor the toughest test of her career, Persoon appealed the decision that left her incensed, believing she had done enough to get the win in New York.
They will now do it all again from Fight Camp in Eddie Hearn's back garden in Brentwood, Essex, as boxing continues behind closed doors.

Last summer's meeting was a brutally close contest over 10 rounds and many will still feel Persoon did enough to get the win that night.
Taylor responded by adding another title to her collection - becoming a two-weight world champion after beating Christina Linardatou for the WBO super-lightweight belt in November.
Persoon will undoubtedly have a point to prove after what happened in New York but so will Taylor who will be eager to erase any doubts left from that night.
