Katie Taylor has said how 2016 was 'a tough year' and that she 'didn't perform well' at the Rio Olympics.

The Bray boxer was on the Late Late Show as the build up continues to her professional debut next weekend but Ryan Tubridy had to ask the 2012 Olympic champion why the defence of her title had gone so badly.

Here is how she responded, reflecting on what she called the lowest point of her career.

And, while she admits that the step into the professional game will bring new challenges and demands, she is looking forward to the next chapter

We all wish her the best in the pro game and we'll be cheering her on next weekend.
