Katie Taylor scored the fourth straight win of her fledgling professional career last night.
The Wicklow woman boxed on the Jorge Linares v Anthony Crolla WBA lightweight title rematch at the Manchester Arena, with her fight against Milena Koleva being shown on Sky Sports 1 and SHO Extreme.
Taylor dominated throughout, knocking her tough Bulgarian opponent down in the seventh and taking a 80:72 win on the cards.
Taylor won some fans with her performance.
