In part because of YOU

On July 7, Katie Taylor, the world champion of female boxing, won her fifth European Union Amateur Boxing Championship title for Ireland in Keszthely, Hungary.

Over all, the Irish women’s team came away from the 23-nation tournament with 15 medals; a record for Irish boxing. Taylor, Kristina O’ Hara, Grainne Gavin, Jacqui Lynch and Amy Broadhurst all received gold medals in the 7th European Union Women’s Senior, Youth and Junior Championships.

However, none of their fights were televised.

“We still don’t get equal publicity with the men,” said Taylor in a phone interview, a few days after the Irish team returned home to Dublin from the tournament, and hours before Taylor jetted to New York for a holiday. “I’ve worked my whole life to get where I am and no television coverage for those fights is not fair.

Taylor has now won 15 major gold medals since 2005 and is the reigning Olympic, World, European, EU and Irish lightweight champion. She is planning to fight professionally for the first time in her career.

n September or October, Taylor will enter the World Series of Boxing (WSB), a professional competition in which amateurs are encouraged to take part. Taylor describes the opportunity as a “transitional event,” where she will fight, for the first time, without head gear and compete for prize money.


World Series of Boxing.

Without head gear.

This is not good.
