Katie Taylor marches on with 7th round stoppage of Nina Meinke at Wembley Stadium
by Michael O'Neill
April 30,  2017
     
   
   

(APR 30)  Katie Taylor duly won her 5th Professional bout and her first Pro strap, the WBA Inter-Continental belt, with a comprehensive defeat of gutsy German Nina Meinke at the iconic Wembley Stadium home of English football, on Saturday night.

The fight was on the undercard of the Anthony Joshua/Wladimir Klitschko IBF World heavyweight title decider, won by Joshua.

Taylor was on top from the outset so it was no great surprise when the referee halted the contest during the seventh of the scheduled ten rounder to save Meinke from further punishment, following an accidental clash of heads.

The Irish woman had been on top since the opening bell against Meinke, from Spandau near Berlin, who reached the quarter-final stage of the 2014 AIBA World Championships in Jeju, South Korea where incidentally Taylor struck Gold in the 60kg Lightweight event.

The fight doubled as an eliminator for the WBA world lightweight title held by Uruguayan Cecilia Comunales whom the Taylor camp will now try and entice across the Atlantic and defend her world crown in Dublin later this year.

Taylor’s Manager Brian Peters and Promoter Eddie Hearn of Matchroom are though keen for the Bray woman to have one or possibly two fights in the United States this Summer, with Chicago and New York both suggested as cities keen to seen Taylor in action.

Of Saturday’s contest, the 2012 Olympic Gold medallist proclaimed: "It's incredible to be fighting in the biggest show in British boxing history," said Taylor later. "I thought the pace of the fight was good. I haven't felt as nervous since the Olympics."

She felt she could do better but then as she agreed herself “‘I’m always a bit critical and I thought it was a bit scrappy at times”

I was expecting a tough fight, but I’m absolutely delighted. These are the moments I dream of.

‘This weight is perfect for me, I feel very strong and good at this weight.

‘I think I’m ready right now to box for a world title, but we leave that to the likes of Eddie (Hearn) and I’ll just keep focusing on my job. The best is yet to come – I didn’t perform to my best tonight but the most important thing is I won.’
