Katie Taylor achieved her long-held goal of unifying the world lightweight championship. She gave to her fans entertaining majority-decision win over Belgium’s Delfine Persoon at Madison Square Garden in New York.
“What a grueling and amazing night at MSG! Dream come true to come away with all the belts”, says Katie.
“It was a very close fight but mission accomplished! Thanks so much to the fans for all the support. Today is a day for celebrating with family as UNDISPUTED!”
Taylor (14-0, 6 KOs), who entered with the WBA, WBO and IBF titles at 135lbs, survived her toughest moments as a professional to add Persoon’s WBC strap.
