WATCH: Katie Taylor knocks out Monica Gentili

Katie Taylor [3(2)-0] took the short route to victory on the David Haye v Tony Bellew undercard.

The Wicklow lightweight stopped Monica Gentili in the fifth round of their contest, the chief support on the night.

Taylor sent the Italian down in the fifth with a furious flurry and, while Gentili did beat the count, the bout was correctly waved off.
