Katie Taylor Defeats Delphine Persoon And Retains Lightweight Titles

She faced off against Delfine Persoon in a rematch of last year's controversial bout.

The Bray native claimed Persoon's WBC lightweight belt by majority decision in their contentious first meeting in 2019.

Taylor had said this week that she's determined not to get drawn into a brawl in the fight at Matchroom's Headquarters in Essex.

She has now been ranked as the number-2 best pound-for-pound boxer in Ring Magazine’s first ever women’s list.

The undisputed lightweight champion is listed below three-weight world champion Claressa Shields.
