Katie is World Champion

Congraulations to Katie Taylor who has claimed her first professional title after beating Argentinian Anahi Esther Sanchez in Cardiff tonight.

Though Taylor was the bookies red hot favorite, Sanchez went into the fight 17 wins and only 2 defeats.

All three judges scored the fight as 99-90 as Taylor claimed her first world professional crown.

It is likely she will defend her title in Dublin next year.
