Katie Taylor

Katie Taylor, Boxing Ireland Golden Girl Katie Taylor

Well on the way to Golod after destroying the Great Britain Boxer  - Natasha Jonas. Score was 26-15 in Katie's favour and is through to semi-final.

Irish boxer Katie Taylor, Ireland's world champion women boxing , is an amazing athlete and unstoppable as the world’s top female boxer in the last three consecutive years. Female boxer Katie Taylor is actively pursuing her dream of making women's boxing an official Olympic sport for the first time in the history of the Olympic Games.

Lightweight double World Champion boxing, Katie Taylor from Bray, Co. Wicklow, Ireland, started boxing in 1998. She comes from a family with a boxing background - her coach at the St. Fergal's Boxing Club in Bray is her father Peter who was 1986 Irish senior light heavyweight champion boxer and her mother is a boxing referee.

Katie Taylor first made Irish boxing history - at age 15  - on October 31 2001 in the first officially sanctioned women's bout ever held in Ireland.  She fought 16-year-old Alanna Audley (now Alanna Murphy) of Belfast at the National Stadium in Dublin in the first of three female contests on a sixteen-bout amateur card. Katie Taylor won over three 90-second rounds by 23-12.
