Katie Taylor made history by unifying all four world lightweight titles with a hard-fought, narrow victory over Delfine Persoon at Madison Square Garden in New York.

She risked being stopped in the 10th and final round, after being awarded victory via scores of 95-95, 96-94 and 96-94 from the three ringside judges.

Many ringside, including Sky co-commentator Paulie Malignaggi, Carl Frampton, Carl Froch and the DAZN commentary team had the awkward and gritty Persoon winning the fight.

All in all Well done Katie.
