Katie Taylor's star continued to rise last night, as she turned in her most impressive display since turning professional.

She knocked out Monica Gentili in the 5th round of their bout in London's O2 Arena, which capped off a dominant display.

She showcased her range, and speed, of shots as she wore her opponent down in the first 3 rounds.

Gentili started to make some ground, but Taylor's class shone throughout as she achieved the TKO in the 5th.

After the fight, Taylor said she feels ready for a world title fight right now, but knows she has to wait.

She'll be on the undercard to the world title fight between Anthony Crolla and Jorge Linares at the end of the month, before the possibility of being on the undercard to the huge heavyweight title clash between Anthony Joshua and Wladimir Klitschko at Wembley Stadium.

Speaking of Joshua, he was one of many boxers to describe just how good Katie is, as he was a special guest on the night.

Another was the man who was part of the main event on the card, David Haye:

 It's fair to say, a world title fight might not be too far away if she can continue like this!
