In a sizzling rematch, undisputed and undefeated lightweight world champion Katie Taylor successfully defended her titles, again defeating former world champion, Delfine Persoon, at the “Matchroom Fight Camp”, in Brentwood, Essex, UK.
These two female warriors clashed with purpose and on purpose in June of last year, in a highly contested fight that Taylor won by decision.
This fight was very intense like the previous one, but Taylor proved her point by landing crisper punches and maintained greater targeted dominance.
After the action concluded, Persoon immediately acknowledged her defeat and sportingly congratulated Taylor, unlike the first fight where she was upset because she thought the decision was controversial.
The scores were 98-93, 96-94 and 96-94, all in favor of the champion.
