The pair squared off in Madison Square Garden to a crowd of thousands in a fight that would see Taylor successfully defend her unblemished record as the undisputed lightweight champion.

As the bell tolled following the final 30 seconds, Taylor reigned supreme as the judges scored it 94-96, 97-93, 96-93, all in Katie’s favour.

The fight is Taylor’s 21st professional victory as she remains the undisputed lightweight champ.

During a press conference afterwards, Katie described the fight as the “best moment” of her career.

She said: “I think the most important thing is always to come out the winner, regardless of how I perform.

“Tonight was fantastic. I had to dig deep and produce a career-defining performance to actually win.”

Katie then applauded her opponent, saying: “What an amazing champion Amanda is, she’s a phenomenal fighter and we definitely got the best out of each other. Coming into this fight, they were saying it was the biggest fight in women’s boxing, but I think it exceeded it.”

She continued: “It was a special, special moment, the best night of my career.

“I was not sure if anything could reach my Olympic gold medal moment, but tonight was absolutely the best moment of my career.”
