Katie Taylor reveals she pretended to be a boy when she first walked into a boxing gym, aged eight, in order to get fights.

Taylor was recently crowned undisputed world lightweight champion, beating Delfine Persoon on points in New York.

Speaking to Eddie Hearn on the No Passion, No Point podcast, she shares her pride at how clubs in her Irish homeland are now "jam packed with female boxers".
