Katie Taylor stunned her hometown fans for the first time in her career with a ring walk to remember.As an amateur, Taylor was five-time Women’s World Champion, a six-time winner at the Europeans and a 2021 Olympic Games Gold Medalist.
She turned over and breathed life into women’s professional boxing, becoming universally adored within her country and beyond.
This weekend, she fought in Ireland for the first time, moving up from lightweight to challenge for a second undisputed title against England’s Chantelle Cameron.
Despite hopes of local stadium, Croke Park, playing host, the smaller 3 Arena held in the atmosphere well. Let’s face it, Taylor could have fought in the street and it would’ve been electrifying.
To mark the special occasion, a special walk to the ring was required, and the promotion delivered just that. You can relive the moment below.
