Born & raised in the idyllic coastal town of Bray overlooking the Irish sea Katie Taylor remains as humble as her roots. She hails from a fighting family, her brothers all boxed, her father was a senior Irish champ at Light Heavyweight & even her mum Bridget has refereed bouts! You could say Boxing is in Katie’s blood. Katie picked up training formally herself at 11 with dad as her head coach. She progressed quickly & over the years collected multiple world championships as an amateur before winning a Gold Medal at the 2012 Olympics. Since debuting little more than a year-and-a-half ago Katie has remained undefeated & picked the the WBA & IBF Female World Lightweight championships. The quiet unassuming young woman unleashes hell on her opponents with furious, powerful combination punching that reminds one of Manny Pacquiao, all the while she carries herself with the grace befitting the new Queen of combat sports.
