President Michael D Higgins says her win in New York was “another fantastic achievement in her monumental career"

Taylor retained her status as the undisputed lightweight champion with a split points victory over Amanda Serrano in New York last night.

It was the first time a women's fight topped the bill at the iconic Madison Square Garden.

Taylor says she'll never forget it and a rematch with Amanda Serrano could sell out Croke Park.

Almost 20,000 people squeezed into the famous venue and the Bray fighter says they could get far more if a second fight took place in Ireland.
