Katie Taylor defeated Tipp's Shauna O'Keeffe on Friday night to claim the vacant Irish lightweight belt.

It is the Bray boxer's first contested national title. In the previous four years, no opponent entered against Taylor, meaning she won via walkover.

The Olympic, World and European champion won by unanimous decision against O'Keeffe, 40-34, 40-36, 40-36.
