Katie Taylor has become a two-weight world champion after taking home the WBO Super Lightweight belt last night.
The Bray woman is only the third Irish fighter to hold belts in two weights – following in the footsteps of Carl Frampton and Steve Collins.
Her win over Christina Linardatou at the Manchester Arena last night takes her record as a professional fighter to 15-0.
She was making her debut at 140-pounds and was handed a unanimous decision victory by ringside judges.
The 33-year-old was already the undisputed lightweight world champion – holding the WBA, WBO, IBF, WBC and The Ring belts in the weight class.

She now looks set for series of big fights in 2020 – when she will work to unify the super lightweight division.
