Unified lightweight female champion, Katie Taylor, is itching for an immediate rematch with Delfine Persoon, stressing she`s not entirely satisfied with her performance.
Both fought a marvelous fight last Saturday at Madison Square Garden in New York, leaving Taylor as the winner by a close majority decision with scores of 96-94, 96-94 and 95-95.
Many thought that the Belgian defeated Taylor, but the former Olympic champion who won five amateur world championships and six amateur European championships, got the decision.
Her promoter Eddie Hearn commented that a rematch fight is feasible and plans are again starting…from scratch.
“Taylor told me ‘If there is any doubt, we have to do it again. I answered that it was close and I had it tied, and she said’ so we have to do it again ‘,” Hearn commented.
