by Michael O'Neill

Following her win on Friday against Switzerland's Sandra Brugger, Katie Taylor had another fine win on Saturday evening in the Royal Hotel tournament in her native Bray.

She gained an unanimous points win over world no. 10, Ingrid Egner from Norway, one of those likely to take part with Taylor in the forthcoming World Championships in China which also acts as the only women's Olympic qualifier.


iaba.ie reports that Katie was on top for the opening two rounds of last night's encounter, before upping the pace in the second and running away with the fourth en route to yet another victory.
Saturday's victory was Taylor's third on-the-trot over the Norwegian champion, Egner.

Her dad and coach, Pete Taylor, said that he was were delighted with the performance and thanked the people of Co. Wicklow and beyond for coming out to support the World number one.

Taylor senior and Zuar Antia were working Taylor's corner at the Royal Hotel.Next up for Taylor will be the International bouts in Dublin and in Cavan in March whilst there remains the possibility of a bout against Queen Underwood, the U.S no.1, probably in Cork on 21 April though that has yet to be confirmed.
