Katie Taylor has successfully defended her world titles against Cindy Serrano.

.

Three judges scored 100-90 in favour of Taylor, allowing her to defend her IBF and WBA Lightweight world titles. He was saying awful things and it was his wife who was in the ring.

"This will be my first time watching you live, I'm very excited", he said.

But the evening belonged to Taylor, who came through her hardest test to date with flying colours to get the win and cement her place as the women to beat in the lightweight division.

Serrano dropped to 27-5-2, with 10 knockouts.

McGregor delivered to Taylor a passionate pre-fight motivational speech, swiftly before she took to the ring where he emphasised just how much admiration he has for her.

The two also had a few words post-fight in Taylor's dressing room.

Now Taylor looking ahead and wants a showdown with Amanda Serrano. "You're an Irish hero and I'm proud of you for who you are as a woman, not even as just a boxer", he said.

"I think I'm fighting December 15th? I think it will be one of the biggest ever female fights". It was great atmosphere tonight, it was great to fight one of the Serrano sisters and the other one I hope is on the way sometime next year as well. There's a lot of talk around all these fights that are happening. "It's great for the sport and it's great to be a part of it".

Not alone did the Bray pugilist win every round, she won every second of every round, as Serrano's sole ambition appeared to be staying upright and going the distance. "But the most important thing was that I got a good win under my belt".

"I expected a tough challenge, but it wasn't like that at all". I would still love to fight a champion because I know Katie is about legacy.
