Katie Taylor says her decision to move to USA and work with Ross Enamait has helped her enjoy her boxing.

The 31-year-old is hoping to get the win when she faces Victoria Bustos on April 28 in New York, in a bid to unify the lightweight division.

Taylor had a successful career as an amateur and decided to turn pro after the Rio Olympics.

She then moved to train in Connecticut, and discussing that decision, Taylor said: “It wasn’t a decision I took lightly.

 

“I knew after the Rio Olympics I needed a big change. Things weren’t going well for me in my amateur career. I had a really tough year and suffered a lot of tough losses.

“That’s when I got in touch with Ross and asked to come out for a few weeks. Thankfully he obliged, and from the very first session we gelled straight away. That’s when I made the decision to turn pro.

 

“When I was out here – that was the first time in a long time I actually started enjoying my boxing again. That passion for my sport came back, and for me that was everything.”

“I’ve always been very competitive and I absolutely love my sport. I just want to be the best I can be,” Taylor added. “Throughout my whole career I’ve always broke boundaries and changed people’s perceptions of women’s boxing and I want to continue to do that.

 

“I’d love to take women’s boxing to the next level and be involved in big fights. I want to unify the division and be the best.”
