It used to be that I didn't really care about women's boxing but now I'm more interested than ever and the sport seems to be on an unrelenting upward trajectory which is great to see.

This Saturday night, Irish golden girl Katie Taylor defends her world lightweight titles against Natasha Jonas in what should be another exciting fight with a great slot on a pay-per-view Sky Sports card. Every female boxer should be eternally thankful for the impact of Katie because the development of the sport has been built on her personality and talent and she has been such a great ambassador for women's sport overall, not just boxing.
