IRELAND’S Katie Taylor has made a successful third defence of her IBF and WBA lightweight titles after a comfortable victory against Eva Wahlstrom at Madison Square Garden.

The Irishwoman maintained her undefeated record with ease and now has 12 wins from her professional fights after a unanimous points decision.

Considered the most challenging contest of her career, it was Taylor’s first time fighting at one of boxing’s most famous venues, but there was no sign of any nerves as she dominated all 10 rounds.
