No surprises in the Wembley Arena. Gutierrez was brave but utterly outclassed by @KatieTaylor . The big mystery is which round did judge Victory Loughlin give to the Spaniard. Utterly baffling decision #KatieTaylorโ Sean McGoldrick (@SeanMcGoldrick1) November 15, 2020
Another magical performance from the brilliant @KatieTaylor. One of Irelandโs greatest sporting icons of all-time and a wonderful role model ๐๐ป๐ฎ๐ช ๐ฅ #TaylorGutierrez #legend pic.twitter.com/QmdTOQgJEVโ Kevin Palmer ๐ (@RealKevinPalmer) November 14, 2020
