The International Boxing Association (AIBA) has named Ireland’s Katie Taylor as its Boxer of the Month for June.
Taylor is the current Olympic Champion, AIBA Women’s World Champion, EUBC European Women’s Continental Champion, and European Union Champion, and added a gold medal from the Baku 2015 European Games to her glistening trophy cabinet on Saturday night.
AIBA President Dr Ching-Kuo Wu said: “I would like to congratulate Katie on becoming the AIBA Athlete of the Month of June, and on her recent gold medal victory in the Baku 2015 European Games. Katie is a true ambassador of women’s boxing and with this award she now sits next to the greatest names in boxing. Her performance and sporting excellence play a fundamental part in further development of our sport and I’m looking forward to seeing her participate in the upcoming competitions”.
