Katie lands an historic sporting blow as Trump touches down on these shores

I’m going to begin this column with the great news about Katie Taylor. As we all know by now, on Saturday night she defeated Belgian woman, Delfine Persoon, in Madison Square Garden in New York. I didn’t see the fight because it was at 1.30 in the morning, but I saw bits of it on the news, and it appears that she won it fair and square. But already the grumblings are beginning and Delfine Persoon has challenged her to a re-match as soon as possible. If I was Katie Taylor, I would not agree to a re-match. Katie won it, and she is now the undisputed lightweight champion of the world. Why should she casually decide on a re-match, just because the loser wants to engage with her immediately? So leave her alone; you are now, Katie, the world champion, so rest on your laurels. Despite that fact, she is always regarded, both when written about and in interviews, as a modest, unassuming young woman, and she appears to be that in every sense of the word. Well done Katie, and I hope you enjoy the sense of accomplishment.
