After admitting in advance that there were "a lot of things haunting me at the moment", du Plessis had another item for his list. Another loss in the competition would put the one-time semifinal favourites on the brink of elimination.

"I feel like this is a historic moment and just to see her in person would be awesome".

"I said before I left for NY that if I did not win by KO the judges would never give me the victory - and that's exactly what happened". Everyone's talking about the fight, it was so close, and I would absolutely love a rematch.

Minister for Health Simon Harris has confirmed that he has written to Wicklow County Council and asked them to commission a permanent and public tribute to Katie Taylor in Bray.

Speaking on her arrival, she says that she is delighted with the support that she has received.

"After the first World title, the next thing was to unify the belt and the next step was to become the undisputed champion".
