IABA Press Officer Bernard O’Neill

Katie Taylor convincingly beat Jessica Belder in Sunday’s Ireland versus Holland international at the Cavan Crystal Hotel.

The World number one, who beat Belder 25-5 at the National Stadium on Friday, romped home to a 27-4 lightweight decision on Sunday evening.

Taylor’s Bray BC team-mate Laois Traynor also won last night, a 16-13 win over Lisa de Vilder securing a double for the Co. Wicklow club.

World Youth bronze medalist Michaela Walsh impressed en route to a 13-4 decision over Scotland’s Kristen Fraser, but Dervla Duffy was edged out by a single point by Bianca Elmir of Australia.
Despite a brave performance, Oliwia Samsanov, who boxes out of the Cavan BC,  lost out to Alicia Holsken at light-flyweight and Sinead Kavanagh was beaten by Dutch middleweight Nouchla Fontijn.
Jade Corcoran and Daria Lach met at flyweight, Corcoran producing a fine performance to win out the four-rounder.
