Katie Taylor’s entire World Championship record

The AIBA World Women’s 60kg Elite title is on its way back to Ireland again today, courtesy of Katie Taylor.

The five-time AIBA World Elite lightweight champion won her first bout at the AIBA World Women’s Elite Championships in Podolsk, Russia in 2005.

But in the next round, on September 28th of that year, she dropped a points decision to Kang Kum-Hui of North Korea in the quarter-finals.

That reversal remains her only defeat at this level as just over a year later she beat Argentina’s (Erica) Anabella Farias, who has won a World title in the pro ranks, in the lightweight final in New Delhi and has held a firm grip on the 60kg crown since.

Taylor, Michaela Walsh, Joanne Lambe and Claire Grace represented Ireland at the 2014 AIBA World Elite Championships in Jeju, South Korea.

The Irish squad and staff are due to arrive in Dublin Airport at 5:40pm this afternoon.
