Olympic gold medallist and five-time world champion Katie Taylor plans to make history at Baku 201527 May 2015
Ireland’s Olympic champion boxer Katie Taylor has revealed her plans to make history at Baku 2015. Katie Taylor is the most decorated athlete in the history of women’s Boxing, and is the current Olympic champion after winning gold at the London 2012 Olympic Games. The 28-year-old has won five consecutive World Championships, six consecutive European Championships, and five European Union Championships, and is an Ambassador of the first ever European Games in Azerbaijan.
Katie Taylor said: “I really can’t wait to be boxing and representing my country again in such a major competition. It’s an absolute privilege that I have another chance to make history.”
“It’s always great to go into a country where they are very knowledgeable about the sport, and to have a really strong boxing team as well. I know the atmosphere is going to be fantastic in the Crystal Hall.”
However, the Olympic champion made it clear that she has only one goal at Baku 2015: “We’re all there to win the gold medal but only one person walks out with a gold medal, and I plan to be that person.
“I want to be the best female boxer of all time.”
