No world championship has been easy for me.
– Katie Taylor
Every fight has been hard. Every world title I’ve won has been hard fought, and every European title I’ve won has been hard fought as well.
As long as I still feel a passion for the sport and preparing for these big competitions, I will carry on fighting.
I think, probably, my best asset would probably be my all round game.
I’ve a great group of people, a great family behind me all the way, all the time. You cannot underestimate that.
People say, ‘You will be 30 years old; you’re too old. You’ll get your nose broke,’ say dad’s a pushy dad. You hear stupid things and put them out of your mind.
I don’t even wear miniskirts on a night out, so I definitely won’t be wearing miniskirts in the ring.

I’d like to thank everyone for all their support and prayers. I’m so humbled by that.
I’d love to have a chance to fight in the World Series Boxing for women, but nothing has been done about that.
I love all sorts of food, chocolate especially. I eat well, but I like the odd Chinese, like anyone!

I know MMA isn’t for everyone. It is a combat sport; some people don’t like watching it, but it is entertainment for some people.
I love playing for Ireland, and I love soccer, but when it comes down to it, I would choose boxing as my number one sport, as I’d miss it too much if I wasn’t involved.
Age is a chronological number. That’s all. There is plenty of time for my life afterwards. I’m still a young woman.
The best boxers don’t always qualify for the Olympics. You can easily have a bad day, but please God, that won’t happen to me.
I think it’s important to feel those losses because I never want to feel like that again.
Sometimes, the plans in your heart aren’t God’s plan.
I have stayed positiv,e and I believe I am still improving in every competition I enter.
You’re clearing your mind during a workout. Boxing is a great sport for girls; it’s really safe.
I never think too far ahead.
I do a good job of staying positive and just moving on.
I’m in the public eye. I’m recognised a small bit more. That’s part and parcel of it.
Definitely, there’s a lot of strength in depth in my division.
I would love to be able to speak my own language and maybe have an interview in Irish, maybe after my fights.
I’m not going to be boxing forever, but I’ve put no time-cap on it, really.
I want to tell girls, it’s not about make-up and how you look that’s important; you are so much more than how you look.
When you’re so consistent, people have to stand up and take notice. I don’t think people recognise or praise consistency enough.
