Katie Taylor produced the very best display of her professional career to inflict a defeat and shield her IBF and WBA World Lightweight names in newyork.

Ireland’s Taylor, 32, won every one of those 10 rounds in Madison Square Garden against a opponent who holds some sort of name in a decrease weight division.

Wahlstrom, bloodied overdue on by a head struggle, had no response to Taylor’s speed and ferocity at any time.

100-90 was won by taylor on all 3 cards.

“I presumed it had been a great performance against an undefeated fighter,” Taylor stated. “She found triumph but I thought I boxed very smart in there tonight.

“I would have loved the stoppage but they’re tough to get some times with the two-minute rounds. It would have been a lot easier with three-minute rounds.”

Serrano reacts to impressive Taylor

Taylor won every encounter and had faced 38-year-old Wahlstrom six days.

And she never looked in doubt of a duplicate, dominating rounds to land as quick feet and her clever feints guaranteed she had been in control of space.

She had been clinical body shots as her opponent covered upward if a gap from the protector emerged in round four, Taylor drilled a combination through.

Hapless Wahlstrom, from the onslaught turned to strike early at the fifth. But she had been immediately bettered, together with Taylor landing an uppercut in a barrage which looked as though it was beginning to take its toll.

A head battle from the eighth did little to help Wahlstrom and she at times resorted to pursing, with Taylor drawing cheers for hand speed as she delivered body shots from the ninth.

A specialist righthand left-hook combination caught the eye in 10, as Taylor slipped to 12 wins from 12 as a professional.

She she actually is eyeing contests with champions including Puerto Rico’s Amanda Serrano and also Norway’s Cecilia Braekhus and will now come back to Ireland for Christmas.

Serrano, who’s won world titles in six weight divisions, later posted on Twitter:”I’m honoured to have been cited thus much tonight. Even from Katie Taylor lol.

“I am ready. I am not looking to go the distance like these cushion punchers. Every one talks like a killer but struggles to get people. I actually don’t go the exact distance to often.”
