Now, if you’ve seen any of her fights, she is, she is amazing, she’s, really well known for her aggressive style.
She goes right at the other girls and she doesn’t give them any room to breathe.
I like that kind of a style in a boxer and she’s, definitely got that she she’s got a fast pace to the fights all her fights are fast.
Paced she’s got a lot of gas.
She never seems to uh to peter out she’s she’s in fantastic condition.
For every fight.
She’S also got great hand speed.
She can throw punches from all angles at with wicked speed.
So if you’re checking out her fights just watch her combinations and her counter punching as well are fantastic, so she’s got everything going for herself right across the board.
Her footwork is good.
She knows how to cut off the ring really well and once she gets somebody uh, you know when she once she gets them hurt.
She definitely knows how to put them out.
So she she was also uh.
She fought the first official sanctioned female boxing match in ireland, which is so she’s the very first woman to have a sanctioned boxing match in ireland.
That’S really cool guys and uh.
Her father is her trainer and he was also a boxer.
He won a a title.
A light heavyweight title in ireland and her mother is also involved in boxing or was, as a referee and a judge in ireland, so their whole family’s involved in in in the boxing uh in the boxing, and it definitely shows every time out she she gives her.
All and she’s just winning everything from from top to bottom.
She is winning it all, and i’m really really super impressed with her.
Now our amateur career is probably, unlike anything, i’ve ever seen.
I’Ve never seen a girl that uh that has these uh kind of amateur uh, metal, wins and stuff of that sort.
So it’s unbelievable.
The results she’s had in her amateur career.
So let’s just go over that a little bit.
She won six count them six gold medals at the european championships, 2005 to 2007, 2009, 2011 and 2014.
she’s also won five golds and a bronze at the world championships: 2006, 2008, 2010, 2012, 2014 and 2016.
She won five gold medals at the eu championships.
She won the gold medal at the 2015 european games and topping it all off.
Congratulations katie! She won the gold medal in the lightweight division in the 2012 olympic games in london, england and she fought all those in the lightweight division.
But she is a gold medal winner olympic champion.
Congratulations katie! That is amazing.
Unbelievable topping your amateur career off with that gold medal at the olympics is amazing.
So that’s a total guys of 18 gold medals.
I don’t think i’ve ever seen a girl, a female fighter with 18 gold medals in her amateur career, so she was also the uh flag bear, which is a really big thing for her.
She was the flag bear at the olympics for ireland and i’m sure she was really proud, and the country is really proud of her so and we’re really proud of her here in canada.
We’Re really proud of katie.
So thanks a lot for uh for everything.
So far, and we’re just going to go into your pro pro career – and it’s been amazing, as we all know so, her pro career she’s had 17 bouts, uh of which she’s got 17 wins undefeated.
There you go she’s got six.
Knockouts gives her a knockout percentage of 36 and uh she’s undefeated zero losses, so fantastic katie.
She turned pro in 2016 and immediately signed a promotional deal with maxbox uh boxing eddie hearn at matchbox and october 2000, uh sorry yeah october 2017 uh.
She won her first world title.
She won the wba lightweight title.
That was her first title in april 2018, she won the ibf lightweight title to add to her collection uh, that she made three successful defenses and then in 2018, uh against two former world champions, cindy serrano, which is amanda serrano’s, older sister and ivana woolstrom.
She uh she, she defended them and against them and beat them both.
So those are some really stiff competition to be to be up against then.
In 2019, she won the wbo title over rose valarney, adding that belt to the collection, so she’s, just guys just winning belts left right and center anytime she’s in a title fight.
She seems to just show her her ability and her ability is at the top of the game, so she’s winning belts.
Every time she gets a chance which is fantastic.
Then in 2019 she had a unification belt with uh delphine person, the wbc title holder.
At the time with all the titles uh all the titles, the unification and it was a very, very, very close fight.
Now it was a great fight if you guys want to watch a really good fight.
Watch that fight katie taylor versus uh pearson, the first one and uh there was a little bit of controversy, but i watched it and i thought she did really well and won the fight.
You know she won by majority decision becoming the undisputed lightweight champion female lightweight champion of the world.
So congratulations katie on that and uh.
That’S amazing! In itself, unbelievable! I’M uh, i’m totally blown away that you could uh you’ve done that and going forward.
I’M sure you’re.
Just going to keep adding more and more belts, maybe moving up in uh in weight, class, etc, etc.
In november 2019, she did move up in weight class to challenge for the wbo junior welterweight title against christina, and she ended up winning that fight as well.
So she took that title down as well: the wbo junior welterweight title, so she became a world champion in two different divisions.
It’S only happened three times for irish fighters, so she’s the third one.
So congratulations on that uh.
She she’s unbelievable.
Really, probably, i would say my favorite female fighter right now, going she’s fun as heck to watch she’s really well schooled in the ring she uh she.
She displays excellent, excellent uh everything she does is excellent.
There’S she’s got no holes in her game.
Put it that way, she does have a a scheduled upcoming fight.
May 1st 2021 uh against natasha jonas.
Now she did fight natasha jonas uh before in the uh, the preliminaries for the olympics and peter.
So jonas is thinking.
This is going to be a revenge fight or something but uh.
I think uh.
I think katie’s going to be able to take that one down and then uh that that’s actually on the on the undercard of the joseph parker, derek shazera fight may 1st on the zone.
So if you guys want to watch katie taylor live she’ll, be may 1st.
2021 on the undercard there and uh she’s gon na probably continue just dominating any fights that she’s in she’s she’s really really at the top of her game.
Probably the best female fighter out there right now now some upcoming fights after that, as long as she gets past uh natasha jonas there’s always been this speculation that uh she’s gon na fight, amanda, serrano, amanda serrano, would have to move up to fight her but uh That would be a heck of a fight, because i really really like amanda serrano too.
She is a fantastic fighter.
She’S also been uh thinking about maybe fighting the welterweight champion jessica mccaskill.
I know that she fought her before and did beat jessica mccaskill.
So that again, would be the second time that they fought and but jessica mccaskill has got quite a bit better now and uh.
She could also fight uh cecilia’s brackets later in 2021 or 22.
So the upcoming fights that katie taylor is going to have are going to be fantastic, uh they’re, always action-packed uh.
She always is entertaining from from round one to round ten being if it goes, the distance she’s a fantastic fighter, and i really suggest you guys check out her she’s, probably the world’s, in my opinion, she’s the world’s best female fighter active female fighter right now.
So thanks a lot for coming out guys.
I really appreciate it.
Uh the likes the shares, the comments, the views everything’s been uh, fantastic.
I really appreciate it and uh keep your eyes out for katie taylor going forward.
