Munster Hatrick for Katie Taylor

Katie Taylor beat Kristin Carlson of the USA to record her third win in three days over the weekend.

The Olympic champion, who recorded two victories in Cork last Saturday and Thursday, earned a unanimous decision over Chicago schoolteacher, a bronze medallist at the 2014 US Nationals, at the Dungarvan Sports Centre in Waterford this evening.

Saturday’s win improves Taylor’s career stats to 143 victories in 150 outings – a 95% strike rate – since 2002.

Meanwhile, Lynn Harvey lost to Maureeca Lambert of the USA in the flyweight class last evening.

Speaking after her victory, Taylor, who will be aiming for her sixth successive European title in Bucharest, Romania next month, thanked everyone for their support and also thanked her opponents in Cork and Waterford.

The Dungarvan BC hosted Saturday’s 11-bout show.
