Katie Taylor beats karen elizabeth
Katie Taylor once again showed her quality by defeating and dominating Argentine Karen Carbajal for 10 rounds, the Irishwoman retained the lightweight titles of the four main boxing organizations: WBC, WBO, IBF and WBA.
Carbajal had a perfect 19-fight winning record, but came up against the best fighter in the world. Taylor dominated the fight at distance, with a lot of speed and excellent waist movement.
The fight went the distance, but Taylor got the victory 100-91, 99-91, 98-92.
“She had everything to gain, I think I boxed smartly, I was a bit open at times but just happy to get the victory,” said Taylor, who hoped her next fight would be in Dublin – for what would be her first professional bout in her home country.
Carabajal, a former national and South American champion, was fighting outside of Argentina for the first time and the 32-year-old came to London with a record of 19 wins from 19 bouts, although only two of those victories had been inside the distance.
She talked up her chances of causing a shock win and taking the belts back to Argentina with her but Taylor, cheered on by a raucous and passionate crowd in London, quickly stamped her authority on the fight.
Taylor was backed by the bookmakers at odds of 1-25 before the contest started and immediately showed her class, speed and power, taking the centre of the ring as Carabajal was caught by jabs and struggled to land anything meaningful in the first of the 10 two-minute rounds.
