Taylor Retains Against Persoon, Just!

The Highly Anticipated Rematch Ends With A Decision

By Intu Boxing   - @intuboxing

Taylor was going through the gears against a tired looking Persoon through the first few rounds, although the Belgian was able to land the occasional shot, reminding the unified title holder there was still a danger.

Katie Taylor had said on a number of occasions in Fight Camp, that she didn't want to be drawn into a dog fight rather stick to her boxing - and she showed signs of doing that, but there will always be that streak which has made Taylor such a fans favourite.

As round 6 started, Taylor was still light on her feet, slipping, sliding and countering - picking shots off, opposing Persoon's tactic of high volume 'punches in bunches'. Before the fight, speaking on Sky Sports - World Champion Anthony Joshua alluded to Taylor's comments she wasn't looked to be pulled into a fight.

The end of the 6th the camera panned to the corner of the Irish fighter, to show huge swelling on the face of Taylor, again reminding her Persoon was still in the fight.

As the 7th ended, the bout was looking more like a puncher vs boxer fight, as Taylor looked to move around and continue to pick away, whereas Persoon just seemed to have a relentless engine.

If some rounds were close but slightly edged by Taylor, the 8th was when the plan started to tire. A big right hand from Persoon caught Taylor, forcing her to come back and pull the trigger.

The 9th round Persoon had her tail high, using size advantage, throwing big volumes of punches not allowing Taylor to stick in her rhythm, setting up a nailbiting round 10.

A firecracker of a 10th round led to a nervy wait for both fighters, neither completely comfortable they had done enough, finally Taylor's hand was raised
