Sky Sports presenter asks if Katie Taylor will 'add her name to Britain's list of world champions'

Jim White made the blunder on air this afternoon.

SKY SPORTS HAD Katie Taylor into studio this afternoon to chat about her plans to win a world title in the professional game.

To preview the segment heading into an ad break, presenter Jim White asked if the Bray boxer would “add her name to Britain’s list of world champions by the end of the year”.

It’s by no means is it the first time the broadcaster has made a howler like that, while the likes of the Daily Telegraph and ESPN have claimed Taylor is British in the past.

Come on lads, give it a rest.
