  • Katie Taylor and Delfine Persoon in action during the bout

Persoon has already confirmed she will lodge an official complaint with boxing authorities following the decision. "But I feel like I did enough to win that fight".

"However, there is a great desire to have a statue erected in Katie's honour to celebrate what she has done, both as an amateur and a professional, as an ambassador for Bray".

"It was a very, very close fight". Judges scored the bout 95-95, 96-94, 96-94 in Taylor's favour but many felt it should have gone the way of the Belgian. "Even if it will probably not help anything".

Persoon had held the WBC title for almost five years but Taylor managed to reach what she described as "the pinnacle" of the sport after 10 rounds of spellbinding boxing on the undercard of Anthony Joshua's shock defeat to Andy Ruiz Jr. "I think it's going to be a great rivalry in the future. "(Manager) Brian Peters knew and (trainer) Ross Enamait knew that I had it from early on in the fight.

Roland-Garros - Fognini, la question sur Zverev qui l\'irrite
Si elle a montré quelques signes d'agacement en fin de match, elle n'a jamais laissé la nervosité la submerger. Le N.1 mondial s'est imposé en trois sets 6-3, 6-2, 6-2 face à l'Allemand Jan-Lennard Struff.

"I train in Corinthians Boxing Club and always get so excited watching Katie fight because I love what she does".

As for a potential rematch, Taylor said she would be open to that, but noted that there are other big fights out there that she would love to have as well.

By the sixth round, it seemed that Taylor had established the control necessary to cruise to victory, but Persoon gradually fought her way back into contention. However, she questioned if statues were only meant to be erected for dead people.
