The Bray super featherweight stopped Poland’s Karolina Kopinska in the third round on the Matchroom ‘Big City Dreams’ card, shown live on Sky Sports 2.
It was a destructive performance from Taylor, who showed off her immense skill as well as some real killer instict.
Fighters who were perhaps not too familiar with the amateur legend were suitably impressed:
Outstanding performance from @KatieTaylor she has every punch in the book in her armoury.. multi weight world champion no doubt in my mind.👊
