Conor McGregor Supporting Katie Taylor Taylor vs Persoon Seniesa Estradas Opponent

Persoon, who could not believe the decision and swiftly returned to her dressing room in tears, provided Taylor with the toughest fight of her life and will feel robbed given how hard she worked over the course of the 10 rounds. This is the position I want to be in. Nearly all of her career she has been active in her native country only, having taken up boxing 12 years ago after injury ended her judo career. "Belgium is a small country, I think NY is bigger than Belgium", laughed Persoon. It's to Persoon's advantage to fight on the outside and use her experience to stay away from Taylor's most damaging shots. I won't react to anything she says.

As an outstanding amateur, Taylor won five world titles, six European titles and Olympic gold at London 2012, but even amid that success she believes only when she has become an undisputed professional champion will she have reached the "pinnacle" of her sport.

Taylor won her first world title, claiming the WBA belt from Anahi Esther Sanchez, on the undercard of Joshua's win over Carlos Takam on...


Taylor is now 14-0, the proud owner of the WBC, IBF, WBA, WBO and Ring Magazine lightweight titles but her choice of ringwalk song, U2's I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For, may suggest that Taylor remains very much in the hunt for greatness. "She'll bring the best out of me as I have the utmost respect for her and we're going to lay it all on the line".

"If I can defeat the Olympic champion it'll be after I couldn't go to the Olympics".

- Women's light flyweight contender Seniesa Estrada's opponent has been announced for her next fight on June 13.


"She will win the fourth title, she is the best there is about", he adds. "It could be a very physical fight, but I'm prepared for this type of challenge". She is a volume puncher, busy and somewhat awkward in the ring. She will have an opportunity to relegate her opponent into a one-dimensional fighter attempting to get inside all night if she executes the correct game-plan. Our prediction: Taylor has more power, more versatility, and is far more aggressive.

But, that hardware aside, the nature of Taylor-Persoon will also serve to kick open the door for women's boxing following its steady climb into the consciousness of the fighting public over the past few years.

"That was a great showcase for women's boxing. They're all behind me (in Ireland); I hope I make them proud at home".


The Belgian felt that she outworked Taylor in a brutal final round before both received a deserved ovation from a thrilled crowd at the final bell.
