Katie gets professional career off to a flying start

Katie Taylor got her professional career off to a flying start in London last night.

Katie won her debut fight as a professional with a third-round stoppage of Karina Kopinska.

The Bray girl said after the fight “Firstly I want to thank my fantastic supporters, I don’t want to get too carried away, it was only my first fight as a pro, but I plan to do big things in this sport. I hope to be multiple-weight world champion.”

Her next fight is on the under-card of Anthony Joshua-Eric Molina on 10 December and she could challenge for a world title at the end of 2017.
