Impressive Katie Taylor stops Jasmine Clarkson in Brooklyn

Impressive Katie Taylor stops Jasmine Clarkson in Brooklyn”

Taylor, the former Olympic gold medalist wasted no time attacking Clarkson with everything in her arsenal.

However, boxing on the Mikey Garcia-Adrien Broner undercard, Taylor did admit to "some nerves".

Her easy technical knockout victory Saturday night marked Taylor's debut in the United States.

It was Taylor's first fight on American soil and she went for the win from the first bell.

After the first 2 rounds, the Bray woman had outscored her opponent in significant punches by 42-4, and the third was even more one-sided as Clarkson had nothing to offer, her corner eventually calling it off at the end of the round.

'The experience here has been great and the reception was fantastic, I hope it's the first of many fights over here. I loved hearing the Irish fans in the crowd.

"I think I'm definitely ready for a world title fight, I hope a world title is on the way next".

"It is hard getting her matched, but I think we are one fight away from challenging for a world title", Hearn told Sky Sports. The more fights I have here in the US the better.

"I thought I performed pretty well". I definitely got caught with a few silly shots. I could have been cleaner but overall it was a good performance.

"It's important to get there sooner rather than later, to keep her motivated and switched on".
