Watch: Katie Taylor Outclasses Anahi Sanchez To Win 1st Pro World Title

One year after making her professional boxing debut, Katie Taylor is the WBA lightweight world title after she defeated Anahi Sanchez on the undercard of Anthony Joshua vs Carlos Takam in Cardiff.

We say Taylor's chin tested for the first time as a pro in what was by far the toughest test she has faced thus far, but it was very nearly over as early as the second round when the Bray woman landed a nasty body-shot that left Sanchez on her knees.

To her credit, the Argentinian refused to quit and even looked at her most threatening in the seconds after Taylor landed her biggest shots.

While it was not as comfortable as her previous bouts, the win was never in doubt for Taylor and she was awarded every round by the judges before having her arm raised and the belt strapped around her waist.


Job done.

Her professional record now moves to 7-0, and speaking to Sky Box Office after her win she outlined her plans to dominated the division for the forseaable future.

Sincere congratulations to Katie Taylor for once again flying the Irish flag with pride and giving us something to celebrate.


This world title is something that has been expected for some time, but she has dispatched of all put in front of her and this win must feel absolutely fantastic, even if she was slightly critical of her own performance.

Onwards and upwards.
