As the dust settles on Katie Taylor's historic victory over Delphine Persoon, much of the focus has been on Shane Ross and his cameo at her homecoming in Dublin Airport.

The Minister for Transport ,Tourism and Sport, Shane Ross was front and centre as the undisputed lightweight champion greeted fans, family, friends and the media.

"It made me laugh over the last few days seeing all the reaction," Taylor told RTÉ Sport.

"He has been getting awful abuse, I kind of feel sorry for the guy now. It was very funny looking at the photos with him in the background, he was photobombing all the photos."

Taylor was back in Ireland with her five belts, she added Persoon's WBC crown and the Ring Magazine belt to her WBA, WBO and IBF titles.

"It was fight of the year contender, male or female, I think that it’s incredible, what a brilliant showcase for women’s boxing, I knew it was going to be the toughest fight of my career, I was prepared for that, it’s great to come out of it victorious.

"The best is yet to come. There are still some big fights out there for me. I’m 14-0 now as a pro. I’ve got five belts including the Ring Magazine belt which is incredible.

"It’s more than a dream really. Ever since I turned pro it was always a dream to become the undisputed champion and here I am now, the undisputed champion and it’s incredible."

Taylor insists a rematch with Persoon will happen in the future but her next opponent is expected to be Amanda Serrano.

Speaking to the press at a media lunch, Taylor's manager Brian Peters said that the Serrano fight has already been lined up. 

"The plan is to fight again in September or October, there are plenty of big fights out there the likes of Amanda Serrano or Cecilia Braekhus.

"They are history-making fights, some of the biggest fights in boxing, not just women’s boxing, but boxing as a whole.

"These are mega fights. I can’t wait to step in the ring and continue to make history in the sport."
