    No offence to her and I’m sure she’s good at what she does but Eddie Hearn just **** off with her please.

    We DO NOT want to see her on big PPV cards, or any cards at all for that matter. Stop shoving her down our throats and stop promising us title fights on these “stacked” cards when it’s women.

    But surely as a fan you can appreciate she is better than many male undercard fighters? So, what's the problem? :)

    Honest answer here, what would you think if she weren’t Irish?

    I think its great to have her on tv - super-talented but exciting enough for ppv cards? Maybe not - until she has a big fight with someone like Chantelle Cameron

    She needs to prove herself vs good opposition.

    As a boxing fan, I genuinely would still watch her with real interest, honestly. I really rate Chantelle Cameron too.

    Your problem is easily solved. You see there's a thing called a remote control....

    Nah, I've already got a solution.

    I watch the boxing as usual, only when the women fight, I go make a cuppa.

    It's just like a really long, annoying advert really.

    I think Taylor is a terrific fighter. Her fights can be hit or miss depending on the quality of opposition. The lack of overall quality in womans boxing makes it hard to make exciting fights. I do believe Taylors last fight was great to watch though as good matchmaking. Her shot variety, and way she moves attacks from head to body is outstanding.

    Katie Taylor, undeniably has skills. She can box, but who has she fought that is even close to her level of skill and ability? Are there any female fighters in or around her weight that can offer her a real challenge?

    Thats a big part of why female boxing is not appealing to me. There are not enough good female fighters, who can come together to create competitive match-ups.

    I could go into more detail about why I don't find female boxing entertaining, and why I wish it wasn't regulary taking up space on cards, but its very late, and I can't be a*sed.
