Katie Taylor gives advice to young boxers with mom Bridget

Katie Taylor recently spent a day training and talking to young boxers.

The undisputed lightweight champion and her mother Bridget have spoken to a number of future fighters as part of boxer Bray’s work with fitness brand Gymshark.

And in typical Taylor fashion, the 2012 Olympic champion insisted the privilege was hers.

Sharing photos on Instagram, she commented, “I spent a day at @gymshark earlier this month with future champions and game changers. The privilege was mine.”

A number of fighters in attendance praised Taylor for taking the time to train them.

One of them said: “An amazing day and an absolute pleasure to train with you.”

Another commented: “It was such an amazing day. So inspired.”

Another added: “It was amazing to meet you! Such a model!”

Taylor successfully defended her lightweight belts against Jennifer Han earlier this month with a stellar performance.

The win took her record to 19-0 and she could be back in the ring before the end of the year.

Speaking after her win over the American, promoter Eddie Hearn said: “I think she’s fighting again in December and then I think she has to fight Amanda Serrano.

“It’s not his fault that this fight didn’t happen. It was a mixture of a lot of things, but that’s the past.

“I think we have to [make the fight]. Amanda Serrano wants to fight. I believe she has done a fantastic job raising her profile. She also brings tremendous value to this fight. It can be rewarded for this value.

“I think we can make the front page of this fight at Madison Square Garden – by far the biggest fight in women’s boxing. We have to do this fight.”
