I’ve limited enough knowledge of boxing and I don’t have Sky Sports anymore so I’ve no access to most fights but I do enjoy the sport so starting this thread again - it might even entice Corleone back to the board.
Katie Taylor has just been crowned world lightweight champion in India. I was hearing her results as the competition progressed and she won her first few fights against ex-champions on the 15 point rule - basically if you open up a gap of 15 points (before the last round) the contest is deemed over. She won one of her fights by stopping her opponent in the first round.
Now she’s after winning the title against the reigning champion 31-14. It’s the margin of her victories that’s so impressive - nobody has come even close to her. Fair play.
She’s only 20 and ranked number 1 in the world. She is now expected to win the boxer of the tournament award.
