Dublin, Thur, 9th July 2009: Katie Taylor has been named The Irish Times/Irish Sports Council ‘Sportswoman of the Month’ for June, after retaining her European Union Championship in Bulgaria last month. Defending the title she won in Liverpool last year, the 22 year old from Bray beat Bulgaria’s Denzita Eliseevan 8-1 in the final in Pazardjik, Bulgaria. It was her 35th victory in a row. Before reaching the final, Taylor beat Cindy Orain of France 11-2 in the semi-final and Italy’s Cordio Giacoma 14-1 in the quarter final. She is also the reigning World, European and Multi-Nations champion as well as the 2008 World Female Boxer of the Year. Her fifth ‘Sportswoman of the Month’ title within five years means that Taylor is now in contention for a hat-trick, having won the overall Sportswoman of the Year Award in 2007 and 2008.

 

Taylor’s victory over a local favourite was the third time in a row that she beat an opponent from the host nation in a major international final. It came after the Ahmet Cup in Turkey and retaining her title at the World Championships in China against Cheng Dong, whom she faces again this week at the International Invitation Tournament in St. Petersburg.  

 

Speaking of her win, Taylor said “I prefer boxing opponents from the host nation in finals because there is always a better atmosphere. This was a difficult match, one where I had to maintain my concentration all along. I am now delighted to get this recognition from The Irish Sports Council and The Irish Times.”

 

Taylor is currently in training to defend another title for the third year in a row, gold  at September's European Championships in Ukraine. In the meantime, sheawaits news from next month's meeting of the International Olympic Committee’s executive board in Berlin, when the introduction of women's boxing in time for London 2012 will be considered.

 

“The IOC’s decision was the number one topic of conversation among the boxers all week in Bulgaria and we are hoping that we will get positive news,” she said. “All we are looking for is to be given the opportunity to do what the vast majority of other athletes take for granted – to be able to represent our countries at the Olympic Games.”

 

Taylor, who is also a senior Irish football international, travelled to Moscow in December to collect her AIBA (Amateur International Boxing Association) female boxer of the year award. In January, she won the overall award of ‘Sportswoman of the Year’ for the second time, for her impressive performances on route to the Women’s World Championships. She had scooped ‘Boxer of the Tournament’ at this and four other major tournaments. In February, she beat fellow senior international, Queen Underwood of the US at National Stadium and in March defended her Multi-Nations title at Stupino Stadium in Moscow.

 

Established in 2004, the aim of the Sports Woman of the Year awards is to recognise the abilities and achievements of women in Irish sports. The awards run over a twelve month period, with the judges selecting a winner each month for her ability to excel at sport. From the twelve monthly winners, the overall ‘Sportswoman of the Year’ is selected and announced.

 

The winner is decided by a judging panel, which is represented by individuals from The Irish Times, RTÉ, and the Evening Herald.

OPEN SENIOR COMPETITION

Donegal welterweight Willie McLaughlin is a major injury doubt for this weekends Open Senior Competition at the National Stadium in Dublin.
The IABA are using the box-off, which gloves off this Friday night, as part of their selection process for Septembers AIBA World Senior Championships in Milan.
Willie McLaughlin
But Irish senior champion McLaughlin, from the Illies GG club in Donegal, may have to sit out the deciders after picking up a rib injury at the European Union Championships in Denmark last month.
The Ulster man, who claimed silver in Denmark, looked to be on the road to recovery from the knock but exacerbated the injury in sparring last week.
Dependant on entries, the Open Seniors will be run over the next two weekends with boxing scheduled for this Friday and Saturday.
There will be no seeding at the tournament, which will mean that Olympic silver medalist Ken Egan could be drawn against anyone of six opponents from the opening bell.
Hughie Joyce, Brendan Fitzpatrick, Darren Cruise, Mark Carlyle, Tom Roohan, and Denis Hogan will be gunning for the nine times Irish senior champion.
However, the light welterweight division may provide most of the fireworks as reigning senior champion Phil Sutcliffe is expected to come under strong pressure from 2008 Olympian John Joe Joyce for the 64Kg vest.
Sutcliffe, from the Crumlin club in Dublin, caused the sensation of the Irish Senior Championships last February when he stopped Joyce in the first round of their final.
Sutcliffe's fans certainly enjoyed that shock as they were dancing around the Stadium in celebration. However, Joyce, stopped Sutcliffe on the 20 point rule in the 2008 semi final.
The middleweight section also contains the potential for a repeat of a 2009 Irish senior final in the shape of current champion Darren O'Neill and Stephen O'Reilly.
And lightweight champion Eric Donovan may have to see off the challenge of AIBA World Youth champion Ray Moylette or 2008 European Championships bronze medalist Ross Hickey to stake his claim for a place on the Milan team.
Reigning senior champions taking part: 51Kg: Declan Geraghty. 54Kg: John Joe Nevin. 60Kg Eric Donovan. 64Kg: Philip Sutcliffe. 75Kg: Darren O'Neill. 81Kg: Ken Egan.91Kg: Con Sheehan.
Meanwhile, a record breaking 113 nations have entered the 2009 AIBA World Senior Championships, which will be held from  September 1 to September 12 in Milan.
