What I do like is the way she goes for it and is never going to sit back and win on points.
She added on Sky Sports: "I had to be at my very best".
Katie Taylor made a successful first defence of her WBA world lightweight title after a hard-fought battle with American Jessica McCaskill at York Hall. This is no time for the Bray fighter to rest on her laurels.
From 6pm, the boxing can be followed on your desktop or laptop via the Sky Go app, which if you're an existing customer, is also available on iOS and Android smartphone and tablet devices.
It was Taylor's eighth fight, and her first defence of the world title she won in the Millennium Stadium in October.
The judges returned a wide points win for Taylor, 97-92, 97-92 and 98-91, and the American pointed out in her post-fight interview she thought the officials were too kind to the champion.
"Katie Taylor, I see a lot of mistakes, and I just want to be able to take advantage of those situations".
Taylor's pro record is 8-0 while McCaskill has a record of 5-1 as a pro.
It keeps the Olympic champion's hopes of dominating the lightweight division alive with this latest stunning performance sure to keep the other belt holders in suspense heading into 2018.
Chicago native McCaskill weighed in at 132.6 pounds and Taylor tipped the scales at 134.1lbs. Despite the fact that the American was a huge underdog heading into the bout, McCaskill had been extremely confident ahead of the fight and it didn't take very long to see why.
A brief opportunity for breath in round eight before Taylor begun to exert her superior punch power qualities to destabilise her gutsy opponent.
Taylor's speed was getting here in and out in the exchanges for the most part.
Taylor's left hook was finding its range but, crucially, fleet footwork took her out of dodge on most of the occasions McCaskill tried to respond; the champ did touch down in the second but it was correctly ruled a slip by referee Howard Foster.
Promoter Eddie Hearn has ensured boxing fans that Taylor's status as a headline fighter will continue into the New Year and more spectacular night's for Ireland's very own are most definitely on the horizon.
