Taylor reaches another world final
23 Nov 2014 15:03
Katie Taylor is through to another world final after beating China’s Jinhua Yin in the AIBA Women’s World Championships in Jeju, South Korea.
Taylor went through on a technical knockout after her opponent threw in the towel at the start of the fourth round.
The Bray boxer will now face Azerbaijan’s Yana Allekseevana in Monday's lightweight final after she beat France’s Estelle Mossely.
Speaking to RTÉ Sport after the fight, Taylor said: "[I’m] delighted to be in another final. We had to be very, very patient. The tactics, as always, were spot on from the guys [coaches Pete Taylor and Zaur Anita]."
The Olympic champion, who is aiming for her fifth successive world title, reached the semi-final on a walkover when her quarter-final opponent, Russia’s Sofya Ochigava, pulled out due to injury. That bout would have been a replay of the London 2012 Olympic final, which saw Taylor win gold.
Taylor is now guaranteed at least a silver medal ahead of the final, which takes place tomorrow morning just after 6am Irish time.
