Katie Taylor secured yet another victory on Friday night.
The current Olympic and World champion beat Canada’s Caroline Veyre on a unanimous decision at a sold-out Mansion House in Dublin.
Paris-born Veyre, a graduate of Montreal University, took a standing count off a rapid-fire Taylor combination in the third. The Canadian champion was a late replacement for US champion Clarissa Parker who withdrew because of travel issues.
The win was Taylor’s 100th from her last 102 outings and her 139th victory from 146 fights overall.
