The boxing world has taken a shining to Ireland boxing sensation Katie Taylor as her star in world boxing continues to grow.
She was made to work hard last night however against a tough American opponent who pushed Taylor hard in patches in the contest.
Certainly the toughest assignment of her pro career to date.
But over the course of the ten rounds, she did enough to get the win and will no doubt learn much more from last night alone then all our professional outings put together thus far.
She’s been winning over a lot of folks in the boxing world in recent times.
Here’s the pick of what people had to say about the WBA lightweight world champion following her mid-week title defence this week:
Sky Sports attempting to break a record for how many times they can call Katie Taylor British in one evening.

I keep seeing ‘Katie Taylor is a great female boxer’ posts. After watching her last few fights, a tip for everyone, the word ‘female’ isn’t needed. Which ever way you grade fighters, she is a GREAT BOXER. End of

Whoever Katie Taylor’s marketing team is needs to get a warm slap in the face, seems like no one knows she’s on tonight and she’s up there as Ireland’s greatest sports star
