World champion Katie Taylor in action against Cindy Serrano

Katie Taylor retained her IBF and WBA lightweight titles in the United States on Saturday night in a dominant unanimous decision victory over a subdued challenger in Puerto Rican Cindy Serrano.

Taylor has also called out Cindy's sister Amanda, saying "I think Amanda Serrano is a huge fight, it's probably the biggest fight in women's boxing".

The Bray boxer emerged victorious in Boston's TD Garden last night during the fight that saw Taylor win each of her 10 rounds against Puerto Rican Serrano.

Serrano tweeted after Taylor's win over her sister: "Congrats to Katie Taylor for her win tonight against my sister Cindy". It's an honour for me to see you live, you're an Irish hero.

Former UFC lightweight and featherweight champion Conor McGregor is now on tour across the United States, promoting his new Proper No. 12 Irish whiskey and taking in the sites.

"She's that good, she's going to beat everyone".

Trump says he has alerted military to 'national emergency' of migrant caravan
Many migrants, especially children, are suffering in the hot and humid weather, as they look for sources of food and water. He said Monday all of those involved are from Honduras, El Salvador, Guatemala and Nicaragua.

"You're a f--ing animal.", McGregor mouthed on a video he published on Instagram. A bit of showboating is OK to do every now and again I guess, especially when there is no risk of anything really coming back.

"I heard that remark and indeed I heard him throughout the fight".

"I did get caught by a jab when I done it and I was mortified".

"I think I'm fighting December 15th?"

At one point during the fight, Katie even put her hands behind her back in an attempt to taunt Serrano into striking but her opponent remained conservative.

Hearn is under pressure to find a slot for her on the Canelo card as his promotion company, Golden Boy, have to be guaranteed a number of their contracted fighters are on the bill as well. I would still love to fight a champion because I know Katie is about legacy.
