Katie Taylor secures European gold in Bucharest

Irish boxer Katie Taylor had a comfortable win over Estelle Mosseley to secure her sixth successive European crown in Bucharest on Saturday.

The 2012 Olympic champion defeated her French opponent in the Lightweight final on points, with all three judges scoring the bout in Taylor's favour.

It is the sixteenth major tournament gold medal of her career.

The 28-year-old Bray boxer also defeated Mosseley in the European Union final last July.

Taylor has won Olympic gold, four World titles, six European titles and six European Union titles in a glittering career.
