Katie Taylor labelled 'Irish hero' by Conor McGregor after retaining titles in dominant victory

Katie Taylor retained her IBF and WBA lightweight titles last night following a dominant unanimous decision victory over Puerto Rican Cindy Serrano.

"What an honour to watch our very own Katie Taylor live tonight in Boston!"

"This lady epitomizes hard work, passion, drive, and laser like focus!"

Taylor was the heavy favourite going into the bout and even though it went the distance, the Bray native was in control throughout the fight as she took her professional record to 11-0 in front of a sell-out crowd at Boston's TD Garden.

"Congrats Katie and coach Ross Enamait!"

"This lady is an asset and should be treated as such". We are watching. Great work team Katie!' It is hard to take someone out when someone is so defensive for the whole 10 rounds.

Ireland's Taylor was aggressive throughout their bout, landed an array of power punches and produced a very convincing victory over a former champion.

At one point during the fight, Katie even put her hands behind her back in an attempt to taunt Serrano into striking but her opponent remained conservative.

Cliffs CEO tears into Wall Street analysts during conference call

"Inside the ring - of course - but outside the ring as well, I've a lot of respect for you".

Taylor said that she wants to fight Serrano's sister Amanda sometime next year with the WBO female super bantamweight champions seemingly eager to make the fight happen. "I would absolutely love that fight".

One woman who could give Taylor a challenge, however, is Cindy Serrano's sister Amanda who has held world titles in six different weight classes. "I was expecting a lot more Cindy". I promise it will be a toe to toe war. I'm not moving nowhere!

In the seventh round, Taylor clearly became frustrated with Serrano's style of boxing.
