Katie Taylor unifies lightweight world titles

Ireland’s Golden Girl Katie Taylor has unified the lightweight World Titles after a master-class display in Brooklyn moments ago.

Taylor has now added the IBF title to the collection with an unanimous points win against Victoria Noelia Bustos in the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.

“I’m thrilled to unify the titles. It’s a dream come true. It was a great fight and she was a brave opponent,” Taylor told Sky Sports afterwards.

“Possibly, because I knew the quality of opposition was much higher than before,” she responded when asked if it was her most difficult professional assignment to date.

“I had to be clever right from the start, she was a clever counter puncher, but I think I mixed it up well between boxing and fighting her tonight.”

The former Olympic Gold Medalist could now face Cecila Braekhus in Ireland towards the end of 2018. Their’s been mentions of the fight taken place at the 3 Arena.
