The Bray woman secured the gold with a victory over Azerbaijan’s Yana Allekseevana [left] in the 60kg final early this morning. The judges scored the fight 40-36, 39-37, 39-37 in Taylor’s favour. The 2012 Olympic champion is now level with Indian great Mary Kom on five world crowns.

As part of her preparations for her 2014 AIBA World and European Elite title defences, the champion is to fight next month in Bray’s Ballywaltrim Community Centre.
On November 30, she will fight Finland’s Mira Potkonen – who she beat in the EU semi-finals – at the Boghall Road venue.
It will be the AIBA World Number One’s first fight in Bray since she won her Olympic gold back in 2012

We’re calling it ‘The Affray in Bray’.
