Taylor in European Games Final

June 26, 2015

Olympic champion and five-time world champion Katie Taylor beat Azerbaijan’s Yana Alekseevna on a split decision to reach the women’s lightweight final.

It was a close-fought battle Taylor was pushed to the limit by Alekseevna who was roared on by the partisan home crowd.

The three judges all scored the bout 38-38 but two of them, from Poland and Finland, opted to give Taylor the final decision to book her spot in tomorrow’s final against France’s Estelle Mossely.
