KATIE TAYLOR CAPPED off a productive couple of days by earning victory over Queen Underwood at Tralee’s Brandon Hotel.

Having defeated Serbian Jelina Jelic in her first bout of 2016 last night, Ireland’s Olympic champion made it two from two against an old rival this evening.

Winning by unanimous decision, Taylor kept her unbeaten record over the former Pan American champion intact on their fourth meeting.

It could also be the final time these two face off as Underwood is set to turn professional.
